Umphrey’s McGee Deliver Bustouts, Guests in Indianapolis Despite Weather

Umphrey’s McGee had to fight through inclement weather last night in Indianapolis—a theme at this stop in the past. However, the band soldiered on and delivered a full night of music following a weather delay.

During “Tribute to the Spinal Shaft,” the group stopped and informed the crowd they would need to evacuate the area due to a front that was set to move through. After the weather passed, the band returned to the stage around 9 PM to finish the show. Highlights included a “Kinky Reggae” bustout which hadn’t been played since 4/23/10, or 469 shows. Cosby Sweater’s Nick Gerlach also joined the band to add his saxophone on “40’s Theme.”

Additional performances of note included a lengthy jam segment in “The Linear” and “Conduit,” the latter of which included a snippet of “Yoga Pants,” the instrumental formerly known as “White Pickle.” The encore featured “All in Time” with a take on Stevie Ray Vaughn’s “Lenny” in the middle featuring a blistering solo from Brendan Bayliss.

Umphrey’s will take the stage indoors tonight in Charleston, WV with a sold out show at the Culture Center Theater. The show will be webcast for free.

Bayliss made me weep through just about the entire encore.

I was reading some comments about Brandons forehead on here last week. I never noticed. For the Open of set two and we moved straight out from Baylice. I was freaking out the rest of the show because the lights reflected off his forehead in such a way that all I could see was a big bopping forehead and a guitar. Thanks for pointing our that this guy is all forehead. I’ll never see them the same again. Then again the show was so cheesy I probably saw my last dUMp show. I thought the dude from the movie Mask was sitting in because of you guys.
