THE FRAY
9:30 p.m., Coors Light / Arkansas Federal Credit Union Stage
(First Security Amphitheater)

The Fray, hailing from Denver, Colo., are purveyors of piano-driven modern rock that everyone from your 14-year-old cousin to your otherwise disapproving grandmother can find palatable and everyone else, at least recognizable. Favoring mid-tempo arrangements and ballads, the group (consisting of Joe King, Isaac Slade, Dave Welsh and Ben Wysocki) formed in 2002. They are perhaps best known for their omnipresent soft-rock anthem from 2005, "How to Save a Life," a song I seemed to encounter in every waiting room ever during its reign. It was an international sensation, hitting the charts in a diverse swath of countries including the UK, New Zealand and Sweden. The fellows reportedly met and connected while leading worship services at their church, and their discography includes acoustic renderings of Christmas carols (and also, perhaps incongruously, a collaboration with Timbaland). They're currently in the midst of a national tour to promote their latest album, "Helios." MS
