Before last night I hadn't actually heard of Guster. In fact, I really only wanted to go to the show to see Sam Roberts. I planned on leaving late so I could miss the opening act, but ended up arriving right before they went on stage. I'm glad I was early. Guster put on one of the BEST live shows that I have ever seen. The crowd was very responsive, the music was loud, clear and made everyone want to dance and sing along, and the guys stage presence was phenomenal. It was clear that they loved what they were doing and the crowd loved them for doing it. It's almost safe to say that they put on a better show than Sam! They sang (what I can only assume) were a good mix of songs from thier albums. I take confidence in saying this, because I went out and bought thier 3rd CD today, and didn't recognize too many of the songs. No worries though, I'm sure I'll be buying more soon. If you haven't seen them live...DO IT. Awesome show. Well done.
