Umphrey’s McGee Welcomes Kanika Moore At Woodlands Festival


Umphrey’s McGee wrapped up their second concert at The Woodlands Fall Music & Arts Fest in Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday night. UM welcomed frequent collaborator and Doom Flamingo vocalist Kanika Moore to close out the first set.

Umph kicked things off with “You Got The Wrong Guy” which led into “Speak Up” which in turn segued into “2×2” and “Much Obliged” before heading back into “2×2.” “Wappy Sprayberry” jumped off into “Booth Love” ahead of “Crucial Taunt.” Moore then joined the band on “Electric Avenue To Hell” to close out the first frame.

UM debuted “The Triple Wide”/”Highway To Hell” (AC/DC)/”Electric Avenue” (Eddy Grant) mashup for the encore at their legendary 2013 Halloween show. The Woodlands version marked just the fourth time the band had played it and the first time since Red Rocks 2017 for a span of 214 shows. Moore, who is in Doom Flamingo with UM bassist Ryan Stasik, has guested with Umphrey’s a number of times but the “Electic Avenue To Hell” was undoubtedly special. An interesting sidenote, Umphrey’s played “The Triple Wide” the night before.

The second set got underway with “JaJunk” followed by “Remind Me” and “Higgins.” The set included covers of Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See” and Talking Heads’ “Making Flippy Floppy,” which hadn’t been played since early 2019. “JaJunk” bookended the set. Umph came back out for an encore of “The Silent Type.” Check out clips from the show including “Can’t You See” below:
