It hardly seems possible that next year marks the 25th anniversary of the meeting of guitarists Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner and percussionist Brian Rosenworcel, freshmen at Tufts University who turned their dorm room songwriting hobby into a quarter century of Alt Rock/Folk Pop wonder as Guster.
  

The Utley Truth

Prolific singer/songwriter Mark Utley has released a single album’s worth of songs. And that’s all.

Thursday • 20th Century Theater

You could glean a great deal about singer/songwriter Drew Holcomb and his wife/bandmate/occasional co-writer Ellie from the fact that they named their first child Emmylou.

Born in Burlington, Vt., and headquartered in New York City, Rubblebucket is a perfect storm of Pop precision, Soul passion, Art Rock quirk and Ska bob-and-weave choreography.
