Low-key acoustic trio Guster have drafted their producer, Steve
Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews), to play bass for five
shows in October, according to band publicists. The stint with the
melody-prone East Coast group, whose instrumentation usually consists of
two guitars and bongos, marks Lillywhite's first onstage appearance
since his decidedly unfamous garage-band days of two decades ago.
Guster are touring behind their third album their major-label
debut Lost and Gone Forever. The disc, which was released
Sept. 28 on Sire Records, debuted at #169 on the Billboard 200
albums chart. According to publicists, the band is warming up for a
headlining show Nov. 27 at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom.
