Off To See Umphrey's McGee

I'm headed into "the City", as we in the New York area say, to see a performance on the street outside Grand Central Terminal by a band I've come to really enjoy, Umphrey's McGee. There is a "Green Apple Festival" this weekend at venues all over town in connection with Earth Day, which is tomorrow. Umphrey's played last night at the Jammy Awards show at the Theater at Madison Square Garden and are appearing tonight at the famed, tiny and soon to close, CBGB's on Bowery.

Never one to pass up a freebee, I'm going to soak up some of their sound. If you're not in the area, give them a listen at their website. If you like good rock and roll played by excellent musicians, I think you'll like them.
