Below me is a SBD quality compilation of jams that some kind soul put together for the 1st 3 months of the 2010 tour, all download links are mediafire, but if you're an Umph fan you owe it to yourself to check this out!
Totally life changing music for me, Wappy Sprayberry was the first song I heard (and my bong named after it), Jimmy Stewart 2007 being my favourite album...going to see them at the STL show with a bunch of friends, can't wait.
UM fans might find it cool that my new pro pic is actually tickets from shows I've been to and seen, not only by UM. But those two picks? Show used picks from Jake and Brendan =D. Blelow is the setlist from 4.05.09.
Saw you guys a while back at 9:30 Club in DC. Then at Pier Six in Baltimore with STS9 (which i thought you guys were better while my friend went with STS9). Now going to see you at Rams Head Live in Baltimore on Valentines day. Its been awhile since i listened to you guys so ive been getting ready with Jimmy Stewart 07 and Mantis. Hell yeah.
saw them earlier this year at the murat... one of my favorite shows ever. its hard telling when i would have found them had i not won the tickets on the radio. it amazed me that i am from indiana & into their kind of music, but had never really heard them or much about them before

I, for one, am glad they continue to evolve. There's plenty run-of-the-mill jam bands doing standard stuff. UM have the talent and vision to do more and it shows. And by my observation, their recent jams are the ones that are more solid and progress to climaxes, but I guess it all depends on what you're looking for.
But the live shows have changed...listen to a mantis-era show and then go back about 3 to 4 years ago and listen to another. It is much much different. Live at the Murat began to mark their transformation into a much more proggy-jam based band...
best concert i've been to yet. my friend invited me out and i was first starting to like umphrey's mcgee, and when i went to their show. . . my mind was blown really. it was like the actual cd- mantis x1000
the T.V.'s on too much
and I don't ever think enough
about the things that matter most
and what could make me old
and there's no argument
for wasting time much better spent
complacently replacing a melody with smoke
