Guster joins a hot bill at this year's University at Buffalo Springfest, the music portion of which begins at 5 p.m. Sunday in Alumni Arena on the North Campus in Amherst. The Guster tour is being dubbed the "Campus Consciousness" jaunt and, throughout it, Guster is traveling in a bus powered by bio-diesel.
The concert area will house booths dedicated to raising awareness of environmental issues, many of them employing interactive events highlighting the need for research into renewable energy sources.
In addition to Guster, there will be performances from the Roots, Jason Mraz, Finger Eleven and Juxtaposse.
