The Eagles Ballroom, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I would like to start off by saying that this was my first time seeing guster in concert. I had been looking forward too this concert for many weeks before hand. I became a fan of guster's only about a year ago but i think they are one of the best bands out there today. Now to the show. The opening band BLUE MERLE was alright but it seemed like all their songs sounded the same. They played a short set before guster came out. Guster started the set with "What you Wish For" which was great even thought it is not one of my favorites. Towards the middle of the concert they played a few songs from their new CD including "Ramona" and another song which was entitled "Diana". It was a good song but i like it better when Brian plays on the bongos instead of the drums. One thing about seeing guster in concert is that songs you don't like as much as others, you like even more. I was never a big fan of "Center of Attention" but after hearing it live, I like it a lot more. The same goes for "Mona Lisa". In my own opinion, the best song of the concert was "Demons" because it is a great song and seeing Brian go nuts on the bongos was cool. They ended the encore with "Either Way" which is a great song to end the night with. Another great part of the concert was the light show which in my opinion was better than any other concert i have been too. For all those who are reading this and have hot yet been to a guster show, you are in for a night of great tones and great fun.
