This was my first "real show" after my first being the Big Summer Classic at Mansfield. I was a Sophomore at Providence College and was very excited to see Umphrey's play at our college town Lupo's venue.

The first 2 songs that they played, ended up being on my "boring list" for about 3 years, and now they have turned into UM's biggest jam vehicles. From what I remember, this Ocean Billy was pretty solid, and the Water was standard at best.

WMM and Nemo were two songs that I had heard and like before, so those were good to hear.

The ending segment of this first set is what you want to listen to if you pick up this show. At the time I didn't realize how rare SFB and Sweetness were, but there is an awesome jam out of these songs, that you should definitely hear.

The Jessica closer was awesome, as it was another cover that everybody knew and got the crowd rocking going into setbreak.

Roulette was a weird 2nd set opener, but The Triple Wide followed and this was a turning point for me in my UM career, because up to this point, I had never heard them do a "Dance Party" jam. And this was a great one that included the disco ball at the top of the venue.

Divisions followed which I had seen in Mansfield, so that was great to hear again. The 2nd half of this set and the encore are all standard straight forward tunes, but it was a great show to have as a first "real show."
