Alt-pop icons Guster have announced that their first bout of touring for 2012 will have an interesting twist. The band will be undertaking a 17 date tour kicking off March 10th in Salt Lake City, the majority of which will find them accompanied by comedian Jeff Garlin of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
These dates will feature not only an acoustic Guster set and stand-up routine from Jeff Garlin, but also collaborative moments between the two, making each a unique experience for those in attendance. While this concept might come as unexpected there is actually a history between the band and comedian, including a joint podcast series which can be streamed here.
Guster will be touring in support of their latest EP On The Ocean, while Jeff will be renewing his legendary stand-up act for the tour. The band has been building a cult-like following over the past 15 years, and have displayed remarkable artistic growth over their past few releases. In fact, the band views the release of On The Ocean’s predecessor ‘Easy Wonderful’ as a turning point in their career, from which they have emerged as “stronger players, writers and record makers”.
