School’s been intense lately
with over time at school, a 41 hour work week and countless hours in the studio, preparing for my show on the 5th of Dec, I sureeee am ready for All Night Wrong and Penn’s Peak. Then moe. New Years Eve!!
Anyone definitely hitting up NYE should hit me up. : ) I wanna meet up with some moe.rons.
Umphrey’s NYE is sold out….
Guess that means Mass/Maine run with moe. this year. Not that I’m complaining!! : )
umph, pumpkin muff
My little sister took this when I took her out for breakfast this morning, she loves umphrey’s. I like to say I raised her right. ; )
Got on Umphrey’s Guest List….
for the Halloween and Penn Peak’s shows…. and a plus one for each! Hell yeah! I love street teaming. Umphrey’s, thank you for being the best band in the existence of evereReReRRR.
in my honest opinion umphrey's mcgee isnt that great. their singer sounds like some generic white dude man. the fam aint fuckin fam either. hippies died in the 60s, my father was a deadhead in the 70s and anyone who claimed to be a hippie was a wannabe. thats all anyone is really.. these days theyre all money hungry drug addicts. and they have gatherings for "peace" after having 7 years of tour under my belt thats the last thing i saw. litter and puke everywhere, people begging for shitty acid..
Aw, man, I’m sorry you feel that way. This makes me sad, but people are entitled to their own opinions. I’m not sure what generic white dude man, means, but I guess you never really listened because you if did you’d realize they have not one singer, but four! Their sound is so eclectic and every show is different! Every umphrey’s fan I connected with at a show has still kept in contact with me and they are some of the best people I have gotten the pleasure to know! Hope you didn’t have any bad run ins, because maybe you need to try another show and meet up with me Jake Side!
I’m not sure where deadhead/hippies come into this, either. I love the Dead, but don’t consider myself a dead head. I’ve never seen them, so I really can’t call myself one. I also don’t like to generalize any group, really. I don’t consider myself a hippie or a money hungry drug addict or whatever else you wanna call it— despite popular belief, I don’t think that scene is about drugs at all. I mean, duh, of course it is and was for a lot of people, but not for me. I’ve never seen litter and puke after a show, but maybe that’s just the crowd I hang out with. ; )
Congrats with your seven years of tour under your belt. Even though (as I’m sure you know) the GD started off playing acid shows in San Fran and at the beginning all it seemed to be about the drugs before they realized they had actually had some talent. I’m not sure if you’re trying to passive aggressively call me out, and I hope you’re not— maybe I’m just being a bit sensitive — but direct your dislike elsewhere, please. : )
Why care about when trends ended when you can just enjoy the music? Lastly; what’s wrong with a wannabe hippie as long as they try to keep to the stereotype of open mindedness and love and all that jazz? People are people, they shouldn’t be restrained to their time period as long as their not an asshole.
Stupid/Over analyzing rant over. : )
I’m sure I don’t need to tell most of you this, but:
GO SEE UMPHREY’S ON TOUR!
If you’re from Philly/greater Phila area, like moi, then you should totally hit up:
ALL NIGHT WRONG: October 31st, @ the Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland
November 2nd @ Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, Pa
THE FOUR NIGHT NEW YEARS RUN! @ The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia
OR GO TO ALL. : ) Hope to see you Umphreaks there.
I know I haven’t been updating much; been working two jobs, hosting some couchsurfers, and general shenanigans have kept me away.
But their fall tour DA FUCK.
I’ll see you all at Halloween, Penns Peak and NYE. : )
Things I can’t Stop Listening to:
Miss You — the Rolling Stones

Turning 21 at midnight…
listening to my favorite umphrey’s shows, planning when I’m seeing them in the fall then getting ready to get sillyillylllly with some of the best people I know on the PMA steps till the countdown is over and I’m no longer the baby of all my friends.
