Guster are no strangers to performing in less-than-pleasant weather conditions. Last January, the alternative foursome played in front of a snowy dumpster in Pittsburgh after their show at the Fillmore was postponed, and around the same time, busted out an outdoor jam session with Keytar Bear in Boston’s Copley Square.
This Sunday (January 15), Guster are leaving their band gear behind in favor of some ice skates, hanging out and skating with fans at the new rink at City Hall Plaza for a public pop-up event. The event is a family-friendly part of their weekend of 25th anniversary shenanigans at their original home base, which includes four sold out shows starting tonight at the Paradise Rock Club.
Catch the Tufts-grads-gone-rockstars from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the rink, and mention you’re a fan of Guster for $2 off entry. Four-day concert passholders can bring their laminates to the rink to receive 50 percent off entry.
If you’re not the athletic type, you can catch the band at any of their four aforementioned shows this weekend at the ‘Dise, and while there, be sure to peruse their traveling “Guster Museum” at the front bar of the Commonwealth Avenue venue.
