UMBowl V To Be Held at The Capitol Theatre
As is customary during the halftime of the Super Bowl, Umphrey’s McGee announced that the fifth edition of their UMBowl will be held on May 3 at the famous Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY for the first time since its inception. The first four years were spent close to home at Chicago’s Park West. The surprise in this selection is the substantial increase in venue size, with Park West capping out at around 750, while the newly reopened Port Chester venue holds 1,800.
The quarter themes will be announced in the near future. Safe bets to return are the Raw Stewage quarter, which has turned into a quasi-songwriting session for the group, with several of the “Jimmy Stewart” selections morphing into full-fledged songs. The All Request Quarter is another popular one amongst fan, allowing the ticketholders to control the action and request some rarities or new songs/covers. Keeping with the technological aspect of the event, the Stew Art Series is another favorite to be included in the fifth edition of UMBowl. As always, stay tuned for a classic UM curveball as we near the event.
