Umphrey’s McGee @ Bonnaroo, June 9

We haven’t come across many photos from Umphrey’s McGee’s instant classic “sunrise” set at Bonnaroo on Saturday morning, so when our pal Mike Stein offered up his shots we jumped at the opportunity. Michael’s snaps focus on the tremendous light show UM LD Jefferson Waful presented to the crowd at This Tent and even gives context by showing the scene around the tent.

UM guitarist Brendan Bayliss explained the thinking behind the set’s full-band segue with Big Gigantic to Rolling Stone, “We figured that, playing from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., if we didn’t stop, there would’ve been a weird moment where we’d have to do a drum solo piss break.”
