UM comes out and matched the house music and just ate up the song Goonville > Eat!! I was so stoke by this time!!! UM is considered a Jam Band. And thats exactly what we got. A Jam Night with UM!!!
They then popped 2nd Self > The Floor which was loud and ripped!! I pretty sure that Day Nurse was the 1st song I recognized!! Day Nurse > Water > Domino Theory > 2x2 to end the 1st set. And WoW!!! An hour and 37 min 1st set!!! YES
Second set was more of the same, faster, harder, and just what I wanted. A true Umphery's McGee show!!
I went upstairs to have a look around but didn't stay for very long. It was just a bunch of drinking dudes and didnt capture my interest. The photo on the left is blurry but I think its my fav.
Then came a breather before they lit up the house with Search 4 > The Triple Wide > Hajimemashite > Hang Up Your Hang Ups!!!!
Can You Say….. Blown Out?!?!?!
I felt alive… This show was worth the 4.5 hour drive…. And only $22… We kinda robbed UM
UM finished off the set with Wife Soup and I was fired up. The crowd was in an UM frenzy for sure.
And as I predicted, UM played popular hits for the Aspen crowd and came to SLC for a rock show!! PHATT Bass rips, heavy ADD guitar influences, and a band that went for it with the long jam songs!!! EPIC!!!
This photo on the left is a prefect representation of the show. It was a complete blur!! The band was on fire!! A number of times, Brendan in the foreground here, shook his head of approval after a mini jam session during a song. I even saw the drummer Kris mouth the word NASTY to bass player Ryan.
THANK YOU UMPHERY'S McGEE!!!
An early morning walk around DT SLC??? I was a little surprised by the STRONG showing of homeless laying around on the streets of DT. I have nothing against homeless but I was surprised by the groups of them on EVERY corner.
Just cursing on by….. Move Along…. HEY, No graffiti… Thats nice
Shadow Boy is about to jump out of his skin so I need to call this a wrap. We are going to hit the low 70's today and 77F by Wed before a disturbance blows through the Grand Valley. Hope to continue taking photos this week and should be able to post again before I head out. As a recap…. I needed that SLC trip!! I feel strong!! Loved waking up this morning w/the Boy Dog's head on my pillow!! Cracked Me Up. Drinking More H2o, Stretching Throughout The Day, And Socking Up The Colorado Bluebird Days!!
Thanx 4 stopping by and stay strong out there
