Next Saturday, April 24, Umphrey’s McGee will host its inaugural UMBowl. As we’ve reported, each quarter will incorporate a different interactive theme. The first quarter will kick off with an acoustic set chosen entirely by attendees. The second quarter will be an installment in the group’s Stew Art Series (S2), “entirely improvised and driven by bi-directional text communication.” The third quarter will be the All Request Quarter. Then the fourth will open with some UM originals after which the fans in attendance will serve as quarterbacks and “call an audible” by texting their votes as to the band’s next move.
Umphrey’s has now announced that it will broadcast the UMBowl live via iClips. The stream can be be purchased for $14.99, with additional details expected in the days to come.
