A finkle and sons, Chicago, IL
I took my girlfriend to see the John Mayer/Guster show here in Chicago. It was really interesting to me, because a lot of the people there had never heard Guster before... that's what happens when the show is put on by something like House of Blues. John's okay, but we were there to see Guster, and they really delivered. They had a short set, so they didn't get to play many songs, but they played a good variety, and added a couple from all albums and made a good mix out of it. I was very pleased with their performance, and I can't wait to go to my next Guster show. I had heard for so long that they were amazing live, both from my girlfriend and my friends, and now I know from experiance. Martin Sexton opened... he was a good suprise... I went out and bought his cd a week later. We left halfway through the John Mayer set... as we were leaving I overheard many John Mayer fans talking about how they had never even heard of Guster before, but they were so impressed with their perfromance, that they were going to start listening to them. That made me happy. It was a great end to the evening. *also, another note about the venue... A Finkle is a very cool place to see a concert, I highly suggest going there if you ever get a chance. Guster-- come back and play again soon!
