Umphrey’s McGee :: December 31, 2004
Riveria Theater :: Chicago, IL
Previously: Sister Christian! Panama!
This show was so exciting to get to, even more so than last year’s New Year’s Eve with Umphrey’s McGee. Alas, that was before I started getting my blog on, so I really don’t have much to say about that show other than it was awesome. But, this NYE show was going to be different. This was the pinnacle of 2004, a breakthrough year for Umphrey’s McGee, and everyone was excited to see what they would do with that.
Man, I can say that I even want to go song by song and talk about my memories. Point of my story, Umphrey’s McGee was hot all weekend and it showed. They were having a blast, and we were reaping the benefits.
Hopefully, we’ll hear more soon about that DVD soon…
By the way, check out this amazing gallery of Umphrey’s McGee on December 31, 2004 (© umphs100). These are a some really great shots, and I fully intend to get a better digital camera to get me on my way.
