Hard to believe, but 2011 marks the 20th anniversary for quirky popsters Guster, an occasion the band is celebrating with the release of the new Easy Wonderful album. In creating their latest, the Guster boys did a couple of things that far more bands should try. One, they gave themselves plenty of time to get it right, recording and re-recording songs, hiring and firing producers and bouncing among studios to find the right space. In all, it was four years between albums, but well worth the wait for fans. And two, they decided to forgo quirkiness in favor of writing and recording straightforward pop songs, one of the band’s obvious strengths. As member Joe Pisapia puts it, Easy Wonderful is “the classic Guster pop record. And that’s what I always thought we should do. We had our period where we’ve tried on a lot of different hats and different musical costumes, which is a lot of fun. But this record feels a lot more germane to who the band really is.” Good Old War opens the show. In the Venue, 219 S. 600 West, 8 p.m., $27.50 advance/$30 day of show
