Picture Show: Umphrey’s McGee @ Lupo’s

Umphrey’s McGee played a two-hour set peppered with crowd pleasers. The floor was jammed packed with people dancing, most of them drinking and dancing, and doing it all quite well. Some of the highlights of their set included a Resolution that was bursting at the seams with improvisation, and a nasty version of The Triple Wide that somehow segued into the classical tune In The Hall of the Mountain King. The energy kept building up throughout the set, climaxing with a typically perfect run through Bridgeless.

Yonder Mountain String Band’s Jeff Austin and Dave Johnston joined Umphrey’s at the beginning of their encore for a take on the Led Zeppelin classic That’s The Way. Austin and Bayliss had been playing this tune during their duo gigs, but it was really nice to see a full-band version. After two hours of raging, it was nice to mellow out with some tasty Zeppelin. The lull in energy was short lived, as Partyin’ Peeps kicked in with Austin taking a nice mandolin solo. When the show finally ended after four hours of music with no interruptions, it was clear that the people of Providence surely got their money’s worth.
