Sorry, last review wasn't finished and I think that I hit something. Okay, Come Downstairs and Say Hello was really cool. They had an awesome jam at the end. The next song was Demons, which I didn't expect to hear before the encore. The electric guitar/drum solo was better than the first time. At the end of the song they went right into Center of Attention without stopping. Center of Attention was a lot different than it was on the album with the Demons guitar, which is very unique. At Valpo they played that song and it sounded too much like the album version. The next song was Manifest Destiny. That song was cool. The next song was One Man Wrecking Machine. I didn't expect to see them play it right after Manifest Destiny because they are two of Ganging Up On the Sun's biggest songs. Then they played Amsterdam. The last song of the main part was Fa Fa. I don't know what Ryan was doing, but he kept playing the first two notes of Fa Fa on the guitar over and over again. I don't know if it didn't sound right or what, but the crowd got impatient and just started singing. We got to sing the first verse of Fa Fa by ourselves. They came back out to play the encore and played Lightning Rod first. Completely didn't see that one coming. Then they played The New Underground. Then they played I Spy. Joe was back by the keyboard the whole song so I expected for the jam at the end that he would play the keyboard. He started playing it then stopped and whipped a slide guitar out of thin air. That was awesome. Then Brian came out from behind the bongos and they played Total Eclipse of the Heart with Brian on vocals. Then they said good night, thanks for coming, the usual stuff. The show was over but the crowd wasn't ready to be done. So they came back out and played Keep it Together. Was a great show. I want them to play at Summerfest next year so I can see them in Milwaukee again. Go see Guster when they come within five hours drive of where you live.
