A couple pop-rock act share headlining duties at The Lawn. Once a goofy college-rock trio comprised of acoustic guitars and bongos, Guster has grown into a serious pop band while on the job. But through the growing process, they’ve kept much of the charming lightness and quirkiness that made them an unlikely success when they launched from Tufts in the mid-'90s. Drawing from a younger fan base than Guster, Jack's Mannequin mixes piano-pop and power ballads, sometimes with the energy and intelligence of kindred spirit Ben Folds.
