On Friday night UM welcomed old friend Kevin Sinclair out on sax for “Ringo” in the first set. Set Two started with an interesting “Der Bluten Kat” sandwich which had “Final Word” and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” as fillings. The band later busted out their cover of “Roundabout” by YES for the first time in 2013 and unveiled “The Final Teen Spirit” which mashes up Europe’s “The Final Countdown” and “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana. For the encore, Umphrey’s brought out old LD Adam Budney for a take on Snoop Dogg’s “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)” (last played -November 5, 2011).
