Four Nights Of Guster

Guster’s 25th anniversary celebration continues with a four-night residency that also marks the 40th anniversary of Boston’s Paradise Rock Club.  

In September the band announced it was honoring its silver anniversary with a Nov. 25 show at New York’s Beacon Theatre, featuring an opening performance from the Old 97’s.

Guster is now planning to take it back to where it all started.

“Back when we were students at Tufts, playing our instruments in Harvard Square on weekends and praying for “off campus gigs” – The Paradise stepped up, took us under their wing, and invited us to open for national acts that came through. In 1994 and 1995 we got to open for Rusted RootJackopierce, The Bogmen, John Wesley Harding, and Acoustic Junction at our favorite local club, and by the time we graduated (and changed our name from GUS to GUSTER) we were headlining the Paradise ourselves.”

The guys are returning to the venue Jan. 12-15 to play four distinct shows that will show Guster’s “musical evolution from then til now.”

Guster will be joined by The BogmenWesley Stace (aka John Wesley Harding), former Barenaked Lady Steven Page, and a young trio named And The Kids, which the band says “remind us of Gus back in the day, if we were female and much much better at songwriting.”  

Discounted four-day passes are available now. In addition to saving $5 a ticket and money on frees, the packages come with a special laminate and an invite to cocktail hour with the band before Sunday’s show.

Single-day tickets go onsale Nov. 11 at 12 p.m. EST.
