Concert news: O.A.R., Foster the People, Cavo, Of Montreal, the Magnetic Fields

O.A.R. promo shot

Merriweather Post Pavilion has announced its first summer concert of 2012. It'll be the indie band Foster the People.

The band, out with debut album "Torches," will play June 10. The album has already been certified Gold by the RIAA, which is probably why they're getting to play a stage as big as this one with only one album to their name. Tickets, at $45, are already on sale.


O.A.R., which played Merriweather in August, is playing it low key with its first pair of shows next year. They'll play the 9:30 Club February 28 and 29.

The show is an extension of their amphitheater tour last year and will hit nine intimate venues in support of this year's "King" album. Tickets, at $40.50, are already on sale.


The St. Louis rock band Cavo announced its first tour in two years Monday and it includes a stop at Rams head Live.
