Random, Spontaneous Thoughts about UM (Part Pee)

What shows/cities would you definitely be hitting?

WI/MN this April and the Iowa festival in May. I’m a family man these days, so most of my shows are within a 350 mile radius of home.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are at Fine Line the day after that IA fest. You should come.

Just watched that budweiser superbowl “ad”. Of course KB is doing something douchey with his shirt off in his 1/4 sec clip

At least he didn’t hang ding

Damn. I do need to see that part of the country. I’ll get up there, you just stay alive and keep going to shows.

That sounds awesome. I’m surprised they aren’t playing a bigger room.

They were at the Entry last time!

I’ve wondered if Kris would’ve gone on the juice to heal up faster. Not like they drug test drug bands for PEDs.

Iirc I 'member alluding to HGH with regards to his healing. Maybe so, whatever helps. Sports has access to the best medicine in the world, I’d bet A-tier touring musicians have access to top-tier medicine as well

I almost guarantee he did PEDs for faster recovery, it’s very common, especially in pro sports. I would, especially if I was a high caliber, professional musician.

The recovery time has gotten way better. Fishman recovered in the same amount of time a couple years back

We usually tell folks 3-6 months when trying to discuss pros and cons

I never had any doubt that he would be back by NYE

is holidaze coming back this year? told myself if it did I’d finally go

Next year is the current intel.

Would love for the Biscuits to do their own smaller event. Probably just wishful thinking though

I mean it is the Biscuit’s event. They play more sets at Holidaze than they did at their own fest last year. We just get 3 nights of UM too. Its far from crowded at the resort even when sold out, and the stage is awesome. Holidaze is perfect the way it is.

Holidaze is definitely more Umphreys than Biscuits at this point. When I went in 2008 it was 70/30 Bisco/UM but the next four were more dominated by Umphrey’s fans. Probably just a subjective opinion though since I plugged way more into Umphreys and knew more of their fanbase as a result. I bet Cloud 9 could tell us though since you let them know what band you are there for when you book.

Something like 4 nights of the Biscuits in Costa Rica w/ maybe a couple late nights tossed in would be more my speed and would feel like more of a vacation and less like a bender
