Umphrey’s McGee kicked off their four-night run at Brooklyn, NY’s Brooklyn Bowl with a bang last night. At the start of the group’s second set, heavily-rumored surprise guest Bob Weir emerged for a segue from “Not Fade Away” into the Umphrey’s McGee original “Glory.” In addition, at the end of Umphrey’s McGee’s first set the group debuted “Domino Theory” from Death by Stereo, which is scheduled for release next week. Weir was in New York for a radio taping earlier in the day.
The members of Umphrey’s McGee have had the opportunity to play with the surviving members of the Grateful Dead a few times over the years, beginning with Phil Lesh’s appearance with the group way back at San Francisco’s The Great American Music Hall in 2004. Umphrey’s McGee will return to the Bowl tonight.
