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.

Shane Lowry’s secured his first top-10 finish of this year’s PGA golf season. A final round 67 has seen the Offaly man close at 15-under par and take a share of seventh at the Wyndham Championship. Lowry came agonisingly close to reaching the FedEx Cup playoffs, but has missed out by just two places. Sweden’s Henrik Stenson has won the event in North Carolina by one stroke at 22-under.

4 4. Is Chelsea hero Petr Cech one of the ready-made stars Brendan Rodgers will sign in January? Now click the arrow above to see a midfield tank Liverpool should pursue! – Thibaut Courtois fine form for the Premier League pacesetters sees the Czech shot-stopper, 32, warming the bench for Jose Mourinhos side. Cech wont want his career to end with a whimper though and a deal could be agreed for him to swap clubs, especially considering Rodgers lack of faith in Simon Mignolet. A fee of £7million has recently been mooted but Arsenal are also interested as Wojciech Szczesnys form dips. 4 4 4 3. Arsenal target Morgan Schneiderlin can shore up midfield for the Reds… now click the arrow to see which striker in the prime of his career could bolster the Reds’ frontline! – Arsenal missed out on signing the France international last summer as Southamptons exodus saw them cling desperately to one of their last remaining star names. It worked out well for the Saints but as Schneiderlin continues to impress its only a matter of time before he moves on. Liverpool fans may be concerned about the possibility of signing another player from Southampton for big money, but his work in front of a back four is something the Reds often poor defending would surely benefit from. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is targeting players who are the finished article in January.After seeing captain Steven Gerrard announce his intention to leave Anfield at the end of the season, the Northern Irishman wants to bring in established stars rather than continue with the club’s model of snapping up young talents from across Europe.He said: “A large part of our squad is young players but there’s no doubt that if you want to take steps forward, you need to sign ready-made players.“The model at the football club is clear in that the owners want to bring in young players in order to develop and create them into world class players.“Of course, that can be a longer and more difficult process. It is certainly something I know the owners look at. They know that not every player can be a developer.“If you’re going to keep progressing, you also need those ready-made players.”So who should Rodgers be looking to sign this transfer window? Click the arrows above to find out… 2. Andre-Pierre Gignac could be the answer to Rodgers’ striker woes – France international Andre-Pierre Gignac, 29, has been a regular goalscorer in France and only failed to hit double figures in one season out of the last seven. A tally of 12 strikes so far this campaign (up to 6 January 2015) have seen several sides register interest, especially as his contract runs out at the end of the campaign. If they fail to land him they could also cast their eyes towards Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling or Sevilla and Colombia star Carlos Bacca. 1. Is Nicolas N’Koulou the stopper who can plug Liverpool’s leaky defence? – If Rodgers is looking to tighten up at the back they could do worse than look towards Cameroon international NKoulou. The 24-year-old already has 51 caps for his country and has played more than 100 times for Marseille in three years and could be available for £6million in January. Alternatively, he could also look at fellow Ligue 1 star Loic Perrin, who has excelled with Saint Etienne.
