"Circles Around the Sun" by Dispatch
An unsigned root rock band that sold out three nights at Madison Square Garden. A trio of musicians in their 20s who walked away from their band at the height of its success. A group whose popularity only increased after it broke up. Unlikely stories, each, and yet together they tell the tale of Dispatch—three friends from Middlebury College whose tunes rode Napster's heyday to the ears of students across America before calling it quits with a final blowout concert in 2004. Reuniting in 2011, Dispatch released Circles Around the Sun the next year, continuing their musical evolution with an album that Allmusic.com praised as having "effortlessly updated their sound." In concert, fans can expect to hear old favorites like "The General" as well as Circles’ title track and the new single "Get Ready Boy".
Guster with the Guster String Players performing "Rocketship" at Tarrytown Music Hall
Formed by a trio of Tufts University freshmen in 1991, Guster's sound was simple: acoustic guitars, hand percussion, and insightful lyrics delivered through the crystal-clear harmonies of Adam Gardner and Ryan Miller. That’s not to say their sound hasn’t evolved over the years, though; for example, "Satellite" from 2006's Ganging Up on the Sun, for example, leads off with a rambling synth line that wraps the entire song in a tumbleweed, making for a distinctly Western vibe. The release of a live acoustic album in January 2013, recorded with the Guster String Players, brings them back to their roots while proving their electricity-free bona fides and continued ability to grow as a band.
