......Play for one hour, fifteen minutes

Now that I own a house and have a serious girlfriend whom I will probably marry soon, I feel the time I have to do wacky stuff like this is coming to a close....

I loved umph with mirro. They havent really been the same since IMO
You really like mirro more than meyers?

Nothing wrong with that, but I think they have grown leaps and bounds as a band since kris joined.

Funny side note, me and Meyers used to date the same girl. (not at the same time, of course)
:p

I think Kris is one of the top 10-15 drummers on planet earth.
They're from my neck of the woods....well, Jake and Brendan anyway.

Enjoy the show!

I was there too - though I didnt drive since I live in a condo in downtown indy. Umphrey's McGee just killed it. I cant want to see them again this summer at the white river lawn.

It might not have to end, but you might want it to.

I went to see Gov't Mule in New Orleans for Halloween once (I'm near Chicago). we were on the road longer than we were in New Orleans. Fun? You bet. But now, I just don't want to drive all that time when I have a great family at home.

I think up road trips all the time, but while some might be worth it (always good to take a breather, man), others just aren't anymore.

Around '79, a friend dropped by the house one afternoon to announce that The Dixie Dregs were playing at a venue 3 hours away that night, and the opening act was Eric Johnson, recently from The Electromagnets.

We didn't have to think twice, and within 20 minutes we were on the road.

Fast forward 32 years. Family and work commitments dictate there's only so much time off I can take a year, not to mention baseball, scouts and you-name-it-what-else. So a friend offered me free tickets, including backstage, full access to join him in Chicago for Clapton's most recent Crossroads Fest.

It took me less than 20 minutes to gratefully not accept.

Totally worth it.


Right on, man!

That doesn't look like the Vogue, which is where those guys used to play all the time.

Roadtripping to see bands you love it always worth it & it doesn't have to end... though it may slow down & you'll need to pick your spots.

I used to travel to Indy all the time & it was a great "base" to see shows... plenty of shows right in Indy, plus 3 hours or less from Chicago, Cincy, Columbus, Louisville, Lexington, Springfield, IL, etc. I made road trips from there all the time.
