They dropped a hint via this clever VINE a few days ago.
But on the morning of their much anticipated Chicago UMBowl IV event, Umphreys McGee clued fans in to their next city gig. ¬†On Saturday, August 17th, they will play a double bill with STS9 which is promised for "For Your Mind-Expanding Musical Enjoyment" at the newly renovated Charter One Pavilion at Northerly Island.
Yes, this summer UM and Phish will play the same venue in Chicago just 1 month apart. ¬†Not a fair comparison I know since Phish will be using the expanded venue, but the STS9 double bill gives UM the boost that they need to step up to some nicer venues throughout the East. ¬†From umphreys.com:
Each band will perform a long-form modern music concert each night, promising an experience to behold for your mind expanding musical enjoyment.
