12-02-2019 12:00:00 12-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Guster, Henry Jamison | 8:00 PM LOOK ALIVE ALBUM TICKET BUNDLE Every ticket purchased for this show will include a download of Guster's new album on album release day, January 18th, 2019. This does not cost anything extra and is included in buying a ticket to Guster in 2019. GUSTER Ever since their humble beginnings at Tufts University, Guster have always sought to outdo themselves. They sell out New York's fabled Radio City Music Hall one year and perform with the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall the next. They sell out a 33-date college tour, and this past spring founded the eco-friendly Campus Consciousness Tour, with buses powered by biodiesel and performances powered by wind power. It's in this overachieving band's nature to one-up itself. HENRY JAMISON If you take a look through his family tree, one thing becomes abundantly clear: Henry Jamison was born to write songs. There's his father, a classical composer, and his mother, an English professor, who both inspired and encouraged him directly, but if you continue tracing Jamison's lineage back even further, some interesting names start to turn up. Go back to the 1800's, for example, and you'll find "Battle Cry of Freedom" author George Frederick Root, the most popular songwriter of the Civil War era. Travel even further back in time, to 14th century England to be exact, and you'll find the poet John Gower, known to be a friend to both Chaucer and Richard II. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=338062 Knitting Factory Knitting Factory
