With support from the quickly rising Marcus King Band, the show was a powerhouse from start to finish.Umphrey’s McGee’s high-octane performance saw the group in truly proper form, focusing on segueing through their songs with a standout energy. One major highlight of set one was “Professor Wormbog”, which saw Jake Cinninger perform on the keys and the band run through the group’s “turbo” ending of the song, which took on an almost punk-rock feel and was greatly accelerated. Another highlight of the show was Umphrey’s McGee’s rare encore of “Andy’s Last Beer”, marking the song’s first appearance in 2018 and fourth performance since June of 2016.During the show, the group also played Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” and teased a lot of fun covers, including The New Deal’s “Glide”, Weather Report’s “River People”, and the “Underworld Theme” from Super Mario, originally by Koji Kondo.You can check out photos from last night’s show below, courtesy of Phierce Photo.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee | Express Live! | Columbus, OH | 2/1/2018Set 1: Gurgle > Speak Up > In The Kitchen, Room to Breathe, Professor Wormbog[1] > Tribute to the Spinal Shaft[2] > In The KitchenSet 2: Looks, Domino Theory, Loose Ends > 1348, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, Syncopated Strangers[3], Hajimemashite > Miss Tinkle’s OvertureEncore: Soul Food I -> Andy’s Last Beerlast_img
