Madison Theater in Covington, Ky was witness to a powerhouse night of music this past Saturday March 6, 2010.  Chicago based Umphrey’s McGee brought their extensive tour to the area and delivered a phenomenal night of progressive rock jam band grooves.  We arrived to the theater around 7:30 just as opening act The Ugly Suits took the stage.  As they played into their set, the venue slowly started to get quite packed.  Half way through The Ugly Suits set, Umphrey’s McGee keyboardist Joel Cummins joined the band for a few songs.  Once the Ugly Suits finished up their set and the stage crew started changing the stage, you could feel the mass of people starting to gather.  Once the stage was set, the venue had reached overflow.  Madison Theater is a great mid-sized venue for the Greater Cincinnati area, but as the night progressed, it was evident that Umphrey’s needs to return to Taft Theater for the next go round.  The night featured an extensive setlist of originals and covers.  The crowd was fortunate to see the return of Umphrey’s friend and Cincinnati native Nick Blasky.  Nick  joined the stage with Umphrey’s for a song during the first set.  The night was peppered with Umphrey’s originals as well as covers of The Police, Pink Floyd, and Iron Maiden riffs with Blasky. The full set of images, setlist of the evening, and links to download a copy of the show can be found below.
