UMBowl Will Be Broadcast Live on iClips.net, Offering four Unreleased Archived Shows to Those Who Pre-Order

Umphrey’s McGee and iClips will broadcast the inaugural UMBowl event on April 24th, and all fans who pre-order the live broadcast will be able to stream four previously unreleased shows from 2009. The four shows will be available for streaming the days leading up to UMBowl, and for 30 days following the event.

The shows that will be made available are:

March 25, 2009: Cains Ballrooom, Tulsa, Oklahoma
March 26, 2009: Liberty Hall, Lawrence, Kansas
March 27, 2009: The Pageant, St. Louis, Missouri
March 28, 2009: Minglewood Hall, Memphis, Tennessee

UMBowl 2010 will be a unique interactive Umphrey's McGee experience. This 4-plus-hour extravaganza will be unlike any other Umphrey's event to date – the UMBowl will be a show for the ages!

The evening will be broken up into four quarters of music, each with a different interactive theme. The First Quarter will kick off with an acoustic set chosen entirely by attendees. The Second Quarter will showcase their successful Stew Art Series (S2). Q2 will be entirely improvised and driven by bi-directional text communication. The playlist for Q3 will be decided by the votes of fans. And for Q4, the fans in attendance are the quarterback. The band will begin a set of UM classics, and along the way, they will be able to "call an audible" by texting in their vote as to which direction the band should go in.

UMBowl will be a full contact concert experience that you won't want to miss! The simulcast will be $14.99. More broadcast details and specific set times will be posted shortly.

Reminder that the Hall of Fame voting closes this weekend (Sunday, March 14, at 11:59 pm).

We know you all have your favorite shows and a variety of stories behind why a particular show remains special in your memory. You've also got your "go to" shows that you reach for when prepping for a road trip, or the favorite show you play when your friends are over, or the show you always play when trying to turn someone on to the music of Umphrey's McGee. We are asking all of you to give this some thought . . . and then visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/umbowl2010 where you will find a poll. In this poll, you may vote for ONE show per calendar year from 2004 through 2009 to be chosen to represent that year in the UMBowl 2010 Hall of Fame. We will press an extremely limited number of these "Six Pack" Hall of Fame shows to CD in a custom, numbered package, autographed by the band. Pricing details and purchasing information to come. Individual Hall of Fame winners will be available for download via umlive.net.
