Tonight’s Umphrey’s McGee show in Silver Spring, Maryland was supposed to be broadcast live on AXS TV until Superstorm Sandy kept that from happening. However, the band still wants fans to watch the performance, of which the second set will be of the “All Night Wrong” variety where fans voted on which covers UM will play. So they will stream the show live via a camera set up at the soundboard.
Those wishing to watch will be able to pay what they want for the privilege with 100% of all donations going to the Red Cross to help with Sandy relief efforts. In addition, Umphrey’s will donate all proceeds from merch sales at the show to the Red Cross. Head to THIS SITE to purchase your “ticket” to see the show and to help a most worthy cause.
Here’s the full announcement from Team Umphrey’s…
While disappointed that the AXS TV broadcast had to be canceled due to Hurricane Sandy, we here at Umphrey’s McGee believe that when life gives you lemons, you find some Ketel One and make lemonade. So we’re pleased to inform you that tonight we will be streaming our Front of House camera live on the interwebs.
Our phenomenal crew is going the extra mile to bring you All Night Wrong, live from The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD. Partnering with Stageit, we will be broadcasting the show via a pay what you want model where 100% of all donations will be donated to the Red Cross to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. In addition, all proceeds from campaign merchandise sold at tonight’s show will be be donated to the Red Cross. Finally, the top two “tippers” from the evening will receive limited edition autographed posters from the show.
Click here and sign up for tonight’s live stream. Please give what you can so we can all support those who need it most right now. Remember, the entire second set is cover songs that you voted for so in the words of Brendan Bayliss, “if you don’t like it, it’s your own fault.”
Please be patient with us *if* we have any technical issues during the show as we do not have a full time video tech on site tonight and the entire UM crew has pretty labor intensive “regular” jobs. We are not expecting any issues but will do our best, as always, if anything arises.
