Today in Umphrey's McGee History

It’s kind of crazy that this has never been released at this point. Always wanted to hear it.

Lol, I forgot about Waist Down. Always skipped that when listening to this show.

I had the pleasure of catching that musical gem multiple times in 2008.

Didnt it become another newer song?

I believe a section was used in Maybe Someday

can’t find my daily schedule to try and figure out my exact pathing, but i know that 20 years ago today i saw all of wilco, some bob dylan, some yonder, some ani difranco, some north mississippi allstars, most (all?) of the string cheese set.

bummed to have missed praxis, yo la tengo, gillian welch .

but best of all, that god damn umphreys set. i was 150 feet back, dead center and had the time of my life.

That Bob Dylan show was one of the worst things I’ve ever witnessed. I remember only “playing” a keyboard and it was not audibly plugged in.

I stumbled past that praxis show trying to find a bathroom at just the right time for it to scare the shit out of super fucked up ass.

i had only seen dylan once prior to that (11/5/99, with phil and friends, a few days after kimock got the boot) and that show was mostly enjoyable. my expectations were high enough to be completely dissapointed.

for every ok dylan show, he has a half dozen horseshit concerts
