Umphreys McGee Returns From the Dead for Halloween Gig
After being killed by the Grim Reaper at the end of their late night Vegoose performance, the members of Umphreys McGee took the stage dressed as zombies last night at Denvers Fillmore Auditorium. Fittingly, the groups two set show had a horror movie theme, with most the groups jams perfectly synched with famous horror flicks. One choice moment included the group playing JaJunk along with the famous chase scene from The Shining, while Padgett’s Profile found the Chicago-based group jamming to A Nightmare on Elm Street. A bit later, Umphreys McGee drummer Kris Myers recited lines for a mix of horror films during Much Obliged and the group played Bridgeless alongside The Exorcist. Umphreys also introduced a new song near during its second set, after which guitarist Brendan Bayliss asked the crowd to come up with a name for the new number. Umphreys McGee will perform at Bloomington, INs IU Auditorium on November 9.
