Although the band’s actual anniversary is on January 21st (1/21/98), Umphrey’s McGee celebrated 15 years together a day early on Sunday at New York’s intimate Brooklyn Bowl. Check out the setlist and a video of “Bob” (UM’s first song) which ironically had to be aborted because the power cut out in the middle of the performance.
