Sunday, Jan. 16, Knitting Factory

Boston band Guster met their freshman year at Tufts University in the late '90s and their sound reflects the alt-rock doctrine of that decade. But with their third album, Keep it Together, they left their freshman days behind in favor of Yo La Tengo producer Roger Moutenot.

Now Guster is in a weird nether region of pop-rock, touring with folks like Ben Folds, Pete Yorn, John Mayer and Nada Surf, with whom they've spent hours on the road. But surprisingly, the guys didn't lose focus or stride in modernizing their infectious style of vintage pop. Rather, they're pioneering a new sound for themselves--a la ukulele, synthesizer and vocals-- as more than just forlorn crooning.

The band is known for in-concert gags: From The Price is Right re-enactments to fictional hillbilly band The Peace Soldiers, the guys of Guster are big on sound and personality.
