Umphrey’s McGee Debut "Dark Brush" at Winter Tour Finale

Brian Stollery

Umphrey’s McGee closed out their winter tour last night at the WhigFest Music & Arts Festival in Tampa, FL, offering a two-set performance that featured the live debut of a track off the band’s latest album, it’s not us.

Umphrey’s packed both sets with a number of their live staples, kicking off set one with “Rocker Part 2,” “Higgins,” “No Diablo” and a “Nothing Too Fancy” that lead into new album track “Half Delayed.” The set would close out with another it’s not us single, “The Silent Type.”

After a second-set opening “The Bottom Half,” the band debuted it’s not us‘s metal-infused closing track “Dark Brush,” nodding to the new beer of the same name that Umphrey’s created with a few breweries and debuted at WhigFest yesterday. Set two also featured an “In the Kitchen” that would be revisited later in the set, along with the finale reprise “Nothing Too Fancy.” UM then wrapped up their tour with an encore of “Glory” and Van Halen’s “Panama.”

See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section. Umphrey’s McGee return to the road for their western it’s not us tour dates next month, kicking off with a three-night stand at Aspen, CO’s Belly Up on March 7–9.
