I'm not making it up. I will try to post an image of my school paper when I get off work.
We may seem cautious/untrustworthy but that is mainly because every year a bunch of people sign up and start telling us about bands playing roo and claim they have a reliable source and then it doesn't come true. Your story sounds legit. More legit than "my friend's cousin told me they ask Umph's roadie and he said something that sounded like bonnaroo" which is what we usually get.

We def need some more jam.....and UM tops all at covers. Anybody else see where they're changing their shows now. It's called the UMbowl, a 4 + hour extravaganza. 1st "quarter" will be an acoustic set picked by the fans via poll. They will also have "tailgating options, a halftime show, limited edition merch....."
These guys put so much into their shows so that the fans will have a great experience. I've only seen them once and only got to catch their first set but they are tight.
A Thieve's Parade 2/24 Conspirator 2/26 Kevin Smith 3/11 Keller 3/17 Papadosio 3/18 JJ Grey 3/25 Bela Fleck/Edgar Meyer 3/26 Toubab Krewe 3/27 O'Death 4/11 Budos Band 4/22 EOTO 4/28 Summer Camp 5/6-29 All Good

I'm with questionablesanity on that one, every time i see Umph i look forward to their cover as they normally pull out at least a tease of one in their shows... i think i nearly shat myself when they pulled out Comfortably Numb at Roth last year, or when they played "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" NYE 2008... Lmao i didn't see that one coming
Oh hell yes! Thanks for filling us in. I don't know why I'm so excited about this since I'm not going this year, but an Umphrey's add will definitely bump this lineup up a notch or two. Have fun at their show!
And yes, Umphrey's is definitely at the top of their game when it comes to covers. The first time I ever saw them, they did two covers in a row - Dear Prudence > Another Brick in the Wall. Amazing! Also, I saw a video on YouTube of them doing Shine On You Crazy Diamond at AllGood last year, which sounded fantastic. I just hope they get a late night again.
