The last time Guster performed in Boston was at Radio 92.9 Earthfest , but they're back to play two shows at The House of Blues on January 15th and 16th.
Since forming during their freshman year at Tufts University in 1992, Guster has become one of the leading indie/alternative bands, releasing seven critically acclaimed albums in 20 years, starting with "Parachute" in 1995 then "Goldfly" in 1997. They broke into the musical mainstream in 1999 with their third studio album "Lost and Gone Forever," with the single "Fa Fa." With the backing of a major label, the band appeared on shows such as the Late Show with David Letterman and released their first music video. Next came albums "Keep It Together," and "Ganging Up on the Sun," which featured the song "Satellite." On September 27, 2006, Guster won Album of the Year at the Boston Music Awards. Their next album "Easy Wondefull" was released four years later in 2010.
Their latest studio album, "Evermotion" was released early last year which features songs "Gangway" and "Endlessly." Adventurous turns on slide guitars, brassy trumpets and even a glockenspiel, with sax and trombone accompaniment by Jon Natchez can be found on the new album. "Evermotion’s" first single, the infectious “Simple Machine,” has been hailed by TIME magazine for its “frantic beats and crawling synthesizers.”
Here's their latest video "Doin' It By Myself"
