Umphrey’s McGee invites you to step behind the curtain on Saturday, February 20th for the Asheville premiere of Reel to Real, the archival rock documentary diving into the band’s early touring years on the road. Examining the inner workings of UM through unreleased band-shot camcorder footage, Reel to Real takes you on a journey through days of suspended youth, racking up thousands of miles in a van and trailer. When a founding member walks away mid-tour the entire venture is left in jeopardy, as the band grapples with growth, starting over, and what it’s really like to be business partners with your best friends.
The screening will take place at The Millroom at Asheville Brewing Company at 2:00 pm. Doors open at 1:30. Tickets are $15. There will be a cash bar with craft beer on tap, to kick off your UM festivities early before the band’s arena show at Exploreasheville.com Arena that evening. Due to extremely limited capacity, it is highly recommended that you grab tickets in advance.
