Umphrey's McGee Covers 24-hour Old Daft Punk Song
When Umphrey's McGee covered "Fuck
You" by Cee Lo Green at the North Coast Music Festival in 2010, the song had been out and climbing the charts for
less than a month. On New Year's Eve 2006, when UM encored their show at The Aragon Ballroom with "Dick in a
Box" - the Saturday Night Live skit where the music video had debuted was roughly two weeks in the past.
So the band is no strangers to quick turnarounds on modern covers - but they took it to a new level last night at
their 4/20 show at Stubb's BBQ in Austin when they covered Daft Punk's new single "Get Lucky" just one day after it
was officially released. Can't get much quicker than that.
Fan-shot footage has already surfaced - and something tells us Umphrey's will be releasing better footage via their
official YouTube channel real soon.
