Morgantown, WV...what an environment for an UMPH's show in mid Feb. Valentine's Day gave all Umphrey's McGee fans a reason for their minds to race of what possibly they could play. Further more
Set I: Catshot was a good way to start off the night, into an always welcomed Miss Tinkle's Overture that jammed hard. Walletsworth was a good fit for an emotional crowd. Domino Theory was pretty sick, really went at it. Intentions Clear really set a good mood for the 1st set. Push the Pig wasn't expected at all, but you'll never turn it down. Wasn't the best version but was very fun. The Floor jammed hard as shit once again..not a surprise. A lot of improve and grooviness/rave feel the show was as an overall.

Set II: The Fussy Dutchman, wow...not a single person was not dancing. Joel was pumped up. Not a Red Tape guy but if i had to see one live I suppose it'd be this one. In The Kitchen was a good up lifting mood after a long Red Tape. Good jams, Thin Air was fucking sick. Haven't seen that one yet until now. I Want You was a great cover.. good sing along for a Valentines Day show. Kabump was tiiiiiiiight. 20 minutes or so. Great Home jam.

Encore: Girlfriend is Better was a pretty cool start to an encore, really went hard and was one of the spacier versions of that they play. Booth Love was expected but not as an encore, heard it up at The Beacon a month prior as an encore so that kind of threw me off. But in the end who is going to turn down a Booth Love on such a great Valentines day down in Morgantown?

Great show all in all, very awesome crowd. Pissed they didnt let me down to the main floor but the 2nd level was hectic and went so hard. Worth leaving my girlfriend at home on valentines day for some umph love, FUCK YEA! Thank you everyone for such an amazing show.

Wasn't able to catch Leave Me Las Vegas due to the fact that NYC cab drivers are idiots, further more...40's Theme immediately grabbed everyones attention to make it clear there was no messing around in the Beacon. Conduit jammed hard got the energy flowing through what was a slow crowd for the most part. Roulette was a good in between song for conduit and NTF. Ocean Billy was fucking killer. 20 minutes or so, Weird Fishes was pretty cool considering they've only played it 4 other times. Good cover, plunger was good way to end the set i prefer the one from the Fillmore on Halloween more. 2nd Set: Puppet String which rocked the house down(unfinished, saw it coming form a while away), the linear put it back together and professor wormbog was really cool, big fan of that. wappy sprayberry was killer, 1st time seeing that and the light show was unreal. Example 1 with the sax was awesome, huge fan of that song. easily the best of the night. Exodus had a ton of energy and really had the beacon freaking out. Booth Love was expected but was very well played, finished by Puppet String. Great show overall...the crowd was sleeping in NYC. not a philly crowd thats for sure UM.

Umphrey's McGee @ Penn's Peak is by far the most beautiful thing these two eyes have ever witnessed. Coming out to Nipple Trix is always a treat to start off a show. Grabbed everyone attention from the start...right into an original but yet wonderful Wife Soup. RtB was good for the venue right into a Floyd cover(Breathe) with a dub theme which was pretty bad ass. Much Obliged was awesome, very funky..very very funky. big fan of that. Uncommon and eat were accepted by me. 2x2 is a great way to end the 1st set and get us real pumped up for the 2nd. 2nd Set: Robot World was kick ass, jammed hard for a long ass time, into an attention grabbing higgins to bring people back to real life. DBK was perfect, give that a listen if u can. Into a No Comment that made people get down, back into DBK. Exodus was a dance party and really had people enjoying the moment. Didn't see that one coming, a perfect ALT left people nearly crying as the set came to a finish. Encore: came out to a WBG into Joel's favorite Orfeo back into WBG to end the show. Great show everyone who was there was given a kick ass show and after that halloween run left people begging UM to come back to the east coast. UM
