Umphrey’s McGee is in the midst of a summer supporting their new album, Similar Skin, and this past Fourth of July weekend they invaded Colorado for a two-night run between the Boulder Theater and Red Rocks. Our friend Christian Johansen was at the first night on the holiday and brought back this photo gallery from the show. —Editor
In the most unexpected sit-in of the weekend, banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck joined the band and closed out the first set with a take of “Great American.” The song devolved into a freeform jam then emerged as the obscure Beatles track “Baby You’re a Rich Man.” [via]
The band has also released a blazing version of “Wappy Sprayberry” from the following night at Red Rocks.
