Anybody a little dissatisfied with this announcement while they are in the studio supposedly coming up with much anticipated good New material. Ryan admitted on this site they mailed in the last studio effort like one of his baselines. I’m looking for the next Plunger or DBK, not telling me to look forward to them delving more into covers. Must mean the studio is a warm gun, which probably led to that cover ;-). Anyways thanks for working harder on other people’s material than your own. It has been a while since a Bayliss Cummings classic and they are my favorite band out there. Maybe these guys can’t balance family and creativity and Myers.

You know maybe you should follow the Hunter Garcia lyrics and just realize you will miss them when they’re gone. The musical costume is like many of the band phan jokes you do not get. Its like yeah we know that since 1994 in jamrock its been cleshay to play a set of covers on gouls night. Now UM is joking with you saying “haha we are going to do the cleshay thing and even say it is our sixth annual mash up as if we are creating the concept.” In reality its just them getting paid for playing covers they want to play instead of worrying about any issues or ego bashing in the organization about who is carrying their weight in the band creatively or technically. I literally live on their facebook page. The drama under the radar between bands fans, new lgbt fans and the decreasing fanbase everyone talks about is amazing. I feel involved with the band. So do my girlfriends. We sit in our dorm chatting UM and what they wear on stage all the time. Will Brendan have a hat….will Joel have a collared shirt…Then the lights come on and the show is over and I forget what was played.

Well said I Know You Rider, well said

Who is Opening on 10/31 July 5, 2013, 00:50:21

So is UM opening for London Souls and doing an hour of mash ups then just doing a costume contest during London Souls. Full set? It would make more sense. UM is in a vicious downward spiral since guys having families and moving around it seems. At some point they will circle back to South Bend and play game days in the lot. All in time. As a South Bender, I don’t think stripping down to Brendan, Joel and Andy and grabbing some ND music students to fill the other spots would make them better. Change course avoid the Divisions.

Umphreaks I know this wont sell out because its stale for most fans but I love the covers. Umphreys and covers go like hot jelly on my taint. If anyone wants to unLoad a ticket or two they are sitting on let me know. We would love two. I’m dressing up like Freddie Mercury in honor of Myers.
