Have you ever played this game? 2 Truths and a Lie.
1. The Artists requested no bottled water backstage. The Guster and Jack's Mannequin tour is always one of the greenest to come through Wolf Trap. This is no surprise as Guster member Adam Gardner founded Reverb, a non-profit that educates musicians and concert goers about environmental sustainability. Reverb visited Wolf Trap's own Green Spot and even surprised a few fans with backstage passes.
2. Guster's Ryan donned a mirror ball helmet, equipped with a wireless mic, and became a human disco ball during "This Is How It Feels To Have A Broken Heart." He recounted a story of how his mother suggested that he not ruin that particular song since it was a "good" one. During load-out our Director of Operations may have worn the disco ball suit to entertain the stagehands.
3. Over the course of the night there were a dozen musicians on stage, over 80 backstage aftershow guests, 3,722 fans, and set lists that included over 30 fan favorites and an amazing, unexpected cover of Peter Bjorn and John's "Young Folks" with dead-on whistling. Set lists below.
What was the lie? There were 3,723 fans here.
