STS9 and Umphrey’s McGee at Northerly Island

STUMP Tour 2013: Louisville, KY

My journey to the land of STUMP started with a four and a half hour drive from Chicago to Louisville, KY.  The last time I was in this beautiful city was when Umphrey’s McGee and Conspirator closed out an early fall tour at the Iroquois Amphitheater last September.  This time around Umph went bit more classy by booking in one of the swankiest venues in town and asking… Read more »

So much music, so little time!

Friday was way to much fun. Woke up with an early morning bite to eat. The birds were chirping, the sky was blue, and all I could think about was Moe playing at 2! So after we had made our way back to the campsite and i had a quick change of clothes we decided… Read more »

Thursday Recap

^ Roster McCabe So we’re just getting started here at Summer Camp and it’s already been better than I ever could have imagined.

Thursday truly was a Party

Whoa! Thursday truly was a pre-party rager. Getting into Summer Camp was very smooth and everyone was clearly ready to party since the moment their cars entered the grounds. There was a nice mist flowing in when I first arrived in line, and it felt super refreshing and actually got me really pumped up! Every… Read more »
