KPRI & Adventure Hornblower Present Guster, 9/29/2010

This week KPRI sponsored another free Hornblower cruise. On Wednesday night, a huge crowd (probably the biggest I've seen this season)experienced the Big Bay with Guster. The band is currently on a radio only tour to promote their new record Easy Wonderful which drops on October 5th (though you can preorder now). I've seen the band a couple times before but this time was exceptional. The band was completely engaging and though apparently experiencing sleep deprivation, they were in good spirits and goofed around without overdoing it. I was fortunate enough to meet John who was kind enough to invite me to share the front row bench with him. The weather was perfect, though we saw lightning off in the distance. To close the set, the band unplugged all of their gear, climbed into the center of the crowd and played "Jesus On The Radio" completely unplugged and without mics. I've posted a couple of the new tracks below, with the full playlist in order at the bottome. Enjoy! (make sure you select the HD view)

I can probably also note that they have another one next Tuesday with John Ondrasik of Five For Fighting. Once again I'll attempt to capture the night for those of you who can't be there. Tickets for that one are long gone.
