Happy New Year Atlanta! Start 2015 off the right way by checking out a show tonight!
Umphrey’s McGee @ The Tabernacle
After 16 years of performing over 100 concerts annually, releasing seven studio albums and selling more than 3.3 million tracks online, Umphrey’s McGee might be forgiven if they chose to rest on their laurels and attend to their lives as husbands and fathers. But you’d be wrong. With their eighth studio album, Similar Skin, and first for their own indie label, Nothing Too Fancy (N2F) Music (distributed by RED), the group – which formed on the Notre Dame campus outside of South Bend, Indiana in 1997 – has something to prove. And that’s not just to their ever-loyal fan base, but to those who have never heard a note, or worse – dismiss them as “too sophisticated, too complex” or think they know what Umphrey’s McGee is all about.
Tickets are $35. Doors open at 7pm.
Funk You w/ Dank Sinatra @ Terminal West
Umphrey’s after party
Hailing from the east side GA town of Augusta, Funk You is an outgoing burst of energy that is continually climbing their way to the top of the music scene. This “funk” oriented outfit projects multiple musical styles focusing mainly on dance driven grooves with powerful clean vocals. Incorporating intriguing musical composition, tasteful lyrics, and crowd captivating live performances, Funk You is surely to make an imprint on your musical taste.
Tickets are $10, or $7 with an Umphrey’s Jan. 1 ticket stub. Doors open at 1opm.
