Seems like all bands these days find their way to electronica eventually, even Guster! The popular earthy Boston-area college rock band known for, among other things, beating the crap out of bongos, has just released a record that is not only largely electronic, but exquisitely so. 2019’s Look Alive sports all kinds of sound events and electro manipulations, all in support of the kind of subtly anthemic and “relatable” songs that the band is known for.
Guster headlines a heck of a lineup at Arrowood Farm Brewery on Saturday August 3. They’ll be joined by the Philadelphia modern boogie-woogie band Low Cut Connie, Arc Iris’s Jocie Adams and the Restless Age, the local trio of ace players Lee Falco, Will Bryant and Brandon Morrison. Ticket prices for this legit mini-festival range from $49.50 to $95.
Saturday, Aug. 3, 4 p.m.
