Umphrey’s McGee continued their winter run with a stop at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA for a show highlighted by the first run through The Police’s “Miss Gradenko” since August 15, 2013. The tune appeared in the encore prior to the finish of “Nothing Too Fancy” started earlier in the show.
Earlier in the night, the band played a unique first set, opening with a brief acoustic set starting with “Gone for Good” before a cover of the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” and their acoustic staples “Great American” and “The Pequod.”
From there, the show wasted little time kicking into high gear as the group dipped into heavy hitters like “Wappy Sprayberry” and “Believe the Lie” before “Nothing Too Fancy.” “Syncopated Strangers” also appeared twice in the show, starting out in the first set out of “Nothing Too Fancy” and then wrapping up in the second set following the opening “2×2.”
Umphrey’s continues their run on Thursday in New Haven, CT.
