Umphrey’s McGee "Bob" (Revisiting The First Song They Ever Played)
On Sunday at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, Umphrey’s McGee celebrated the 15th anniversary of their first official show, which took place at South Bend, IN’s Bridget McGuire’s Filling Station on January 21, 1998. On that evening band opened with the original “Bob,” but the power went out a few seconds into the number.
