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.

first_imgThe McClimon Soccer Complex has been unkind to the Wisconsin men’s soccer team so far this year. In three games, the Badgers have scored only two goals and have yet to win a game. They will get another chance to turn their home fortune around Saturday when they host the Cleveland State Vikings.Wisconsin will welcome CSU to Madison, fresh off the heels of a debilitating overtime loss to undefeated rival and 10th-ranked Marquette Wednesday night. The Badgers battled the game into overtime when Nick Janus scored the equalizer in the 78th minute.The first overtime lacked a goal, and Marquette quickly won after just three minutes of the second frame. The focus now turns to the Vikings (4-4-1) and setting the right foot forward at McClimon.Wisconsin failed to impress in its home opener but have made improvements ever since. Wisconsin tied then-No. 13 Georgetown and was nipped by Penn State in the final minutes. Sophomore defender David Caban attributed the Badgers’ improvement throughout the year to a change in strategy.“The defensive change has allowed me to solidify my role in the back, and everyone else as a team solidifying their areas,” Caban said, noting the Badgers have switched to a 4-2-3-1 alignment, the same they used last season.Wisconsin made the most of that positioning last season with strong defensive efforts. The team entered the Georgetown game having surrendered 10 goals in just four games. In the five games since, the Badgers have conceded just four scores.Wisconsin’s success has likely come from the Badgers’ familiarity with the defensive-minded scheme. It led them to six one-goal victories in 2011, and they hope it can continue to do so.“When we switched back to that set [against Georgetown] you could tell we felt a lot more comfortable playing that formation,” Caban said. “It is easier to play as a team. We have a lot more guys around the ball.”That group of guys has become increasingly consistent, too. At the start of the season, the Badgers used an attack of 15 or 16 players each getting plenty of minutes. Now, they use about 13 or 14 in their strategy, a move that has looked forced.“We don’t have that luxury at this point,” head coach John Trask said of getting more players in the game. “We have to go with our best players, and I think most college teams do. If we were sitting better, maybe we could look at someone else.”In that core group, a few freshmen have played important roles for the Badgers this season. While much has been made of freshman Chase Rau starting in goal for the Badgers, another freshman, midfielder Drew Conner, has quietly had just as great an impact.Conner is the only freshman to start all nine games for Wisconsin (2-4-3) and has logged an impressive 870 minutes, third-best on the team. Having been subbed out of just one game, he remains only 18 minutes short of the season-maximum pace set by defenders A.J. Cochran and Paul Yonga.While the amount of playing time the midfielder has been given is impressive, his expectation coming to Madison was to start all along.“Coming in, I wanted to start and play a big impact,” Conner said. “That was my plan – to come in and make this team better.”As one of the youngest players on the team, Conner has looked to his coaches in helping him get acquainted with the Wisconsin soccer squad.“We put a lot of trust in these coaches and we have a lot of respect for them,” Conner said. “We know if we do what they want, we will usually be successful.”That success can come as early as Saturday night against Cleveland State. With the UW football team out of town, the soccer team will be ready to host a large crowd and earn its first home victory of the season.With the Badgers already behind in the Big Ten title race, they will need every victory they can get in hopes of bolstering their NCAA tournament r?sum?. Nonconference games like the one this weekend are a great start.“If we can do well and get on to the positive ledge, I think people might be surprised when the initial RPI rankings come out,” Trask said. “We’ve played a lot of very difficult games; we’ve tested our guys. We just have to start picking up some wins.”last_img read more
