Any fans of Guster?

Thread title is self-explanatory.

My brother has seen them play a couple times and he told me they have excellent stage performance.

So I'm just curious. I'd love to see them play one day. I love their music.

Discuss?

I love Guster. I've been to a few shows. Where have they been? I haven't heard anything new since Ganging up on the sun.

Yes, I like Guster. They play all around New England all the time as they are from here. Some really good stuff.

Hopefully they'll have a new album out soon.

Yeah. All the albums are good. I wish they stuck with the acoustic sound sometimes though.

Has anyone heard their song 'Demons'? I'm pretty sure it's a cover, but they make it sound good.
Their voices are so well harmonized.

"center of attention" is a great song, though.

I think I heard a song by them called Parachutes, which someone accidentally sent me in the Coldplay album Parachutes instead of Coldplay's Parachutes. I preferred that song to the entire Coldplay album, so there's that.

im not a huge fan of their last album, but every album before that is great. lost and gone forever is a classic. you should check out guster on ice if you want to see how they are live.

btw u2's window in the skies videos actually shows a couple clips from the guster on ice dvd. thats pretty random.

I love Guster! Parachutes is my favorite album of theirs. Lost and Gone Forever is not bad either.

Fa fa fa.

Amsterdam.

One Man Wrecking Machine.

Oh yes - much Guster love here. I saw them support (ahem) Maroon 5 years ago and they blew those whiny whitey soul wannabes off the stage.

I was introduced to Guster on the 'For The Kids' album. They had a song called 'We Gotta Be Clean'. Loved it. Saw them a couple years back. Put on a great show. Wonder where they are.

I saw them back in August after being just a casual fan and I really loved it. They do really have a great stage performance. I really hope to see them again sometime.

According to the studio blog on their website they are still slaving away on the new album and ditched a nearly completed one a whiles ago.
