Following up on the postponement of Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion, guests, Guster, have bowed out of their slot on the festival bill due to touring commitments. As a result, the band had some time to kill on Thursday and offered a 5 P.M. set beside two dumpsters in Austin, Texas, which they announced less than an hour before the start of the gig on social media.
During the performance, the group delivered its 2003 release Keep it Together track “Jesus on the Radio,” which contains the line “5 A.M. March 16,” which they fittingly changed to “5 P.M. March 16,” as a nod to the time and date of their concert.
Over the past few years, Guster has played a few surprise sets next to dumpsters when their gigs have been canceled for various reasons. On the topic of yesterday’s performance, singer Ryan Miller joked that the March 16 show was their biggest dumpster set yet, drawing an audience of “15 people and 2 babies.”
Following up on the Guster surprise dumpster set, they will kick off the first night of their national tour, which begins tonight at Dallas’ Granada Theater. For those interested in catching Guster on the road, visit their official website for tickets and more.
