Is it me or does Umphreys management I guess Vince believe they are a huge band when they are a club band. We know the headphones and schtick for some high margin earning for the band but this is a joke. Anyone can find their shows for free who has a cable modem. They would make more selling Stasiks face pu22y to all the leatherboy fans from the Plunger club than access to basically 10 years of non evolving UM. Wasnt 04 the last album anyone even could stand? Im going to new years but just to pick up guys.

Get over it. UM is by far the best touring band around right now. Some people just refuse to accept that, they go above and beyond to keep things fresh and new ideas coming out. Their schme right now is spot on. People are clearly using it and there’s nothing wrong with making money. The strongest survive and UM has been around for 15 years and still going strong.

Really? September 11, 2013, 23:03:48

These guys are unreal. They created the internets and streaming music like Sean Parker. Who are they kidding? has been around for years in a similar capacity and (which has hosted UMs shows for years actually has used a similar concept for years.) There are many bands that have more shows available on and anyone who has taken an internet class can find 285 UM boards readily available. I realize times are tough. The guys have said it to me late night post show while we party. It just is sad to see their management literally try to bleed their 1000 hardcore fans dry. Use google, you will find their boards easily. This is a sham, and how many 2×2, Divisions, JaJunk or Triple Wides can you hear before the toe goes in the trigger for the shotgun in your mouth. Clearly none of us go to the shows for Conduit or the Floor.

Going Strong? September 11, 2013, 23:07:50

Did you notice they didn’t sell out any venues this Summer and put 6000 people on a co bill at Alphretta that holds 28000? If that is going strong, god forbid. Phish was playing Cypress in their 15th year for reference. I do think the new abundance of LGBT support that is really awesome to see at the shows will boost their numbers a little. I know busses of rainbow fans driving out to Denver, so their marketing and covering of so many songs that cater to that crowd this Summer will help. Right now, I have heard the guys with families are teetering on leaving the band because the money and travel don’t make up for missing your family and all the dumb stuff you do on the road with other guys and girls. The band is in flux. The material has suffered and the band is getting old like Joel.

Gotta say this is highly unkind of the band. Anything but a good new song to make a buck. I enjoy the freedom of the scene since so many are still closeted. UM shows are a prime place for 18-38 year old men to escape women and get to our basic needs. The Boothlove from stage is the soundtrack yo multiple climaxes flying in the air like at Wolf trap and summer skool.
