The first time I saw Umphrey’s McGee, it was at the Park West on 2/2/02. I had to use a fake ID to get into the 18+ show. I am still in awe of them every time I see Umphrey’s live, more than a decade later. The band still manages to make their show feel fresh each and every time (and I’ve seen them more than 80 times). Umphrey’s has even done some innovative things for the fan experience, unmatched by most in the music industry. The last time they came through Los Angeles, I was treated to another new experience. I was afforded the opportunity to obtain headphones, so as to hear the pure soundboard mix. The best way to describe it would be auditory bliss.
