[Recommened] Guster with Eli "Paperboy" Reed & The True Loves, Oct

Guster with Eli "Paperboy" Reed & The True Loves Overture Center, 8pm, $29.50, more info at trueendeavors.com and www.overturecenter.com  Back in my high school days, I like so many others had an after school job to get some extra cash.  I worked at a clothing store in the mall and as many of you dedicated shopaholics will know, the music on rotation can get on your nerves quickly (especially when you can’t leave for 4 to 6 hours).  Mostly I tried to drown out songs like Paris Hilton's Stars are Blind and anything by Miley Cyrus but among those were a couple of tracks that I actually found I liked.  It wasn’t until I heard them in my friend’s car that I found out they were all by the same band and that band was Guster. Introductions: Guster originated as a three piece acoustic group that has grown to adopt a fourth member and whole new variety of instruments.  The band has now put out six studio albums and even more live records and with each one they seem to get better, and their audience seems to grow.   Their latest album Easy Wonderful was released just a little over a week ago.  You can check out Guster's website to stream a few tracks.  Even if you don’t immediately recognize this band by name chances are you’ve heard their music.   Their tunes have been featured on many television shows and movies, such as Martian Child, which featured their song "Satellite"; Disturbia; Wedding Crashers; Life as a House, The OC; and one of the band’s songs was used in an ad for The Weather Channel. Why should you see them? One of the things that sets Guster apart is their dual lead vocals.  Adam Gardner and Ryan Miller share the lead vocalist title on many of their tracks and together they create a great harmonized sound.  Another thing I like about the band is their range of instruments.  They like to create different sounds by using things like a banjo, keyboard, bongos, harmonica, xylophone and a trumpet.  The guys are not afraid to switch it up either.  The guys switch role for different songs including in their live performances.  It should be a great live performance especially because of the bands ability to consistently crack jokes.  It takes the show to the next level and makes it a really fun night out.  Their humor is what many of their fans, including myself, love about them. I have seen Guster a number of times and have yet to be disappointed.  Make sure you join me at the Overture Center TONIGHT! Best Tracks: -The Captain -One Man Wrecking Machine -Fa Fa

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"
A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984. A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:The Human League "(Keep Feeling) Fascination
It was almost a clean-sweep this morning for the synthesizer heavy "(Keep Feeling) Fascination") by the Human League. Everybody was in the mood for a little 80s fun! It made it up to #8 on the charts in 1983, a couple of years after the British pop...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the 70s, and...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo

Day 3: Saturday

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...
