So you’re Umphrey’s McGee. You’ve got nothing to do on a Thursday night. What can you possibly do to have a good time?
Well, you could invite a few friends to play along with your band. Maybe you could invite The Revivalists and Earphunk to come party and then convince the TAUK boys to hang out for the afterparty.
Yeah, that ought to do it. But where would you have this party? Savannah, Georgia? OK, that’s good.
What’s the party for? To benefit Turn Back the Block! Sounds great!
Friends With Benefits Presents The Major Rager, with Umphrey’s McGee playing two sets, including one of their amazing “All Night Wrong” sets of diverse covers, and they will join with fusion masters TAUK for that afterparty. New Orleans comes to the party dressed as the Revivalists and Earphunk, two of the Crescent Cities best ambassadors. Check the Major Rager official website for more information.
Why Major Rager? Well, there is a little golf tournament in the neighborhood.
You already had plans for Thursday? As if…
