Oh, we are so in love.

Brian and I are so in love with Guster. We have seen them in concert several times over the past year (we saw them here and here and here and here), and every time we leave a show we are both repeatedly saying, That was the best show. I think that was the best they have ever sounded. Every show is the best show. And last Saturday was no exception.

A few months ago, we found out that Guster was playing a two-day show with Brett Dennen in Montclair, NJ over Thanksgiving weekend. We looked at our schedules and decided that we probably wouldn't be able to make it. Then, a few weeks ago I got a text from Brian on my way to train with him at the gym. He said that he had some exciting news to tell me. I assumed that he got a new client or made some changes on his website, and was eager to hear all about it. When I arrived at the gym, I met Brian and asked him about his news. As soon as I heard the words, We are going to see Guster and Brett Dennen, I shrieked. And then I clapped and jumped up and down. I was over the moon excited.

Brian, his nephew DJ, and I arrived in Montclair a few hours before the concert and ate dinner at Elevation Burger. We got to the Wellmont as soon as the doors opened and staked out the perfect spot right behind the sound guys. We were a step above floor level and had a perfect view of the stage. We also had a direct view of the song lists, which made me even more excited for what was to come.
Brett and his band were great, and I loved watching him do his signature dance moves throughout his set. By the time he sang Sydney, I'll Come Running, I was singing and dancing right there with him. And I have to say, my moves are just as awkward and awesome as his.
Guster played songs from all of their albums, and we belted out every word during their two hour set (well, Brian sang every word... I might have made up a few...). And I swear, I think it really was the best they ever sounded.
4, 3, 2, 1, went out the barrel of a gun. 
Start to finish, it was a phenomenal show.
After their encore, both Brett Dennen and the guys from Guster came back out for one more song. The lights were dimmed, guitars and mics were unplugged, and they played Jesus on the Radio. It was the perfect conclusion to a perfect concert.
We will never forget our night at the Wellmont with Guster and Brett Dennen.
