The show was absolutely packed with smokin’ hot UM jams, but a section in set one certainly stands out for obvious reasons.The band called on bassist Arthur Barrow, who worked extensively with Frank Zappa in the 70’s and 80’s, to lend a hand for two debut Zappa covers. With Barrow replacing Ryan Stasik, the band went into “Soul Food I” before playing Zappa’s “Treacherous Cretins,” to the immense delight of fans of both Zappa and UM. Barrow stayed on for “Glory,” an Umphrey’s original, before Stasik closed out the set with “Piranhas > Wizard Burial Ground.”Leave it to Umphrey’s McGee to host a legend like Arthur Barrow for two debut songs for a tour closer. The remainder of the show was just as hot, with a second-set opening “40’s Theme” and a “Puppet String” that began in set two and concluded as the last song of the encore. Umphrey’s McGee are off until April 6th, where they’ll perform once again in Oxford, MS. They’re also playing an “All Night Wrong” set at the Major Rager, coming up on April 7th, with help from horn players Natalie Cressman and Jennifer Hartswick.
