The first set concluded with a classic, high peaking “Wife Soup” with the crowd singing along to every word in the chorus. After a much needed and well deserved set break, an in your face “In The Black” started off the set. “Hurt Bird Bath” increased the energy level ten fold then followed a meaningful “Intentions Clear.” “Kimble,” a classical piano composition by Joel Cummins, came next and was heavier than usual. “Phil’s Farm” had two improvisation parts: a very dark metal section and a calming, building jam. Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss switched guitars for a powerful “Nopener.” After the switch back to their starting guitars, the second set was concluded with a delicate and heartfelt solo from Brendan Bayliss in “August.”The guys brought Midwest love to the encore by playing “In the Kitchen.” It sandwiched one of the most entertaining scenes from the night, a cover of Warren G’s “Regulate.” Andy Farag and Brendan Bayliss rapped the duet, and afterwards Kris Myers sang “I Keep Forgetting” lyrics by Michael McDonald to go along with the song’s melody. The band wrapped up the show by returning to “In The Kitchen” for the finale.Check out the full setlist below!Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at Iroquois Amphitheatre, Louisville, KC – 8/6/16Set One: Flamethrower > Wappy Sprayberry > Got Your Milk (Right Here), Attachments, FF > Mail Package, When the World Is Running Down You Make the Best of What’s Still Around > Blue Echo > Wife SoupSet Two: In the Black, Hurt Bird Bath, Intentions Clear > Kimble, Phil’s Farm > Nopener, AugustEncore: In the Kitchen > Regulate > In the Kitchenlast_img read more
