1/3/15 Guest Review

BY YOUSEF BAIG, PHOTOS BY ABBY FOX & CHAD SMITH We’ve all faced moments where words fall short. In happiness, sadness, and every differing emotion in-between, there are situations where speechlessness or humbled silence can be the most appropriate reaction. The show that Umphrey’s McGee put on Saturday night—the last of its five-night stay at The Tabernacle—was the strongest of the week, the most extraordinary, musically, and one of the best they may have ever …

1/2/15 Guest Review

BY YOUSEF BAIG, PHOTOS BY ABBY FOX & CHAD SMITH With each night surpassing the one before it, Umphrey’s McGee continues to impress during its five-night excursion in Atlanta. Friday night’s opening act was the most improv-heavy start Umphrey’s has had this run. With four songs spanning over an hour, the shortest piece would be a touch under fifteen minutes. The techno metal intro, “You Got the Wrong Guy,” queued up one of the songs …

A rational train of thought would be, “It’s New Years Day and everyone is struggling. It’s the middle of the run, bring out the …

12/31/14 Guest Review

BY YOUSEF BAIG, PHOTOS BY ABBY FOX There’s nothing we do bigger than New Years. It’s the only event that’s earned a planet-wide day of recovery. We go back to work after the Super Bowl. We go shopping after Thanksgiving. It transcends race, age, economic status—everything. You’re either going to stay up late for the calendar change, or if you tend to pass out after a few minutes on the couch, wake up the morning …

12/30/14 Guest Review

We’re featuring guest reviews of this week’s five-night run at the Tabernacle in Atlanta by UM fan, Yousef Baig. We hope he’ll tell us if he doesn’t like it but….so far, so good. 🙂  BY YOUSEF BAIG, PHOTOS BY ABBY FOX It goes without saying, this is no small task. To embark on a five-night run in a city that’s nearly 700 miles from your hometown is a rare feat, but Umphrey’s McGee has the …
