Photos: Umphrey’s McGee – 4/19/2014 – Austin, TX

Umphrey McGee Austin

A Saturday night tour closer at one of Umphrey’s favorite venues, beautiful weather, a HUGE setlist, and guest sit-ins all equaled an amazing night!

The crowd energy was off the charts and the band returned it in a big way. They said they were going to leave it all on the field tonight, and they totally delivered. The entire second set was one big highlight for me that all culminated in a Mike Dillon and Carly Meyers sit in on a classic Miles Davis cut that they grooved on for a solid 10+ minutes. As the encore ended, Umphrey’s sound engineer Chris Mitchell blasted Ozzy Osbourne’s “Mama I’m Comin’ Home” over the PA and the band left the stage for the final night of the spring tour.

This show really was an exclamation point on the end of an incredible run. Umphrey’s McGee is now gearing up for festival season, summer tour, and the release of their highly anticipated new studio release “Similar Skin”. Check out the photos and setlist below…
