Though sometimes dismissed outside of their tape-trading fan base, between all their tour dates college staples O.A.R. have learned how write some pretty catchy pop songs. “Shattered (Turn the Car Around),” the biggest hit off 2008’s All Sides, trumpets their new-found radio-friendliness, closely resembling The Fray’s “Over My Head (Cable Car),” and not just because both titles have brackets. With their kinda-sorta jam tendencies, the group was already bankable touring outfit before their commercial success, but every year their empire grows bigger. Tonight the group headlines Summerfest’s largest side stage, the Miller Lite Oasis.
