This was my first of (as of now) 69 shows. I first found out about UM after they did the "Molester Medley" for Halloween 2004. Phish had just broken up and I needed a new band to fill the void. I listened to the song Anchor Drops, and absolutely loved it, so I got the album for Christmas that year. This show was the first one in the NE region for that year, and it's kind of crazy to think that now, as they have played here in the winter ever since.

As soon as this show was announced, me and my buddy Rob grabbed tickets. Umphrey's, String Cheese, and Keller Williams was definitely a nice draw for us. We also wanted to see this band New Monsoon, but their set time was like 1 PM, so we said screw it.

Mulche's Odyssey featured a pause during the peaking jam to let the crowd know that KB was getting married. And they had an impromptu acapella "Kevin's Getting Married" tune. Divisions was an amazing song to see as my first "big" UM song. There wasn't any improv, just a straight stand-alone Divisions. Push The Pig had Franti come out and do some raps and stuff. Kinda cool for the 19 year old that I was at the time, but whatever. Wife Soup was a song I knew and was pumped to hear. Next was the only time I got a "I've Got A Feeling." 69 shows and still not another one haha. But I just remember being pumped to hear Bayliss nail the vocals for one of my favorite bands of all time. Finally came JaJunk which was another song I knew and was happy to hear.

All in all, it was a great introduction to a band that I would be following around for the next 7 years of my life.
