Since forming in the late '90s, the musically muscular and relentlessly inventive Umphrey's McGee has cultivated an impressive presence both live and in the studio. Lauded by critics and adored by fans, the band continues to draw in new listeners with their singular style: virtuoso playing and acrobatic tempo changes and rhythmic shifts complemented by dazzling song craft and composition, memorable hooks, anthemic guitar lines and rock solid rhythms.
With The Bright Light Social Hour
The Bright Light Social Hour is an American rock band from Austin, Texas. Born out of
a university art-rock collective, The Bright Light Social Hour has evolved into an
unabashedly wide-screen rock group, melding fists-up rock and roll with muscular funk,
soul, and psychedelia. The band recently swept the 29th Annual Austin Music Awards
during SXSW 2011 with an unprecedented 6 wins, including Band of the Year, Album of
the Year and Song of the Year ("Detroit").
"One of the most exciting records to come out of Austin in a long time."
-Austin Monthly, 4.5 stars
