After almost falling out of an overstuffed golf cart several times, we made it in time to see Umphrey’s go on a half hour early. The crowd quickly gathered as the guys kicked off their nightcap with “Jajunk.” Flowing from song to song, they really seemed like they were having a great time closing out the festival. Brendan Bayliss thanked the crowd and the festival organizers before they dropped into “Spires,” their only new tune of the evening.

 

“Divisions” kicked off the non-stop onslaught of older songs and great jams. They took full advantage of their  two plus hour set by playing several multi-part songs. They spent much of the set showing off what they do best which is flowing from song to song like it was meant to be that way. There were pieces of “Divisions” and “Der Bluten Kat” sprinkled amongst some other crowd pleasers.

 

“Hangover” got the crowd singing along as everyone recognized how they’d feel much of next week. They even brought out Matisyahu for some vocal noodling during a “Jimmy Stewart” that lasted nearly 15 minutes. An excellent cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” got the late night crowd cheering uncontrollably before transitioning seamlessly back into the end of “Divisions” to end the set.

 

The crowd cheered like they didn’t want the festival to end, and Umphrey’s came back and began the encore with the appropriately titled “Much Obliged”. They couldn’t let anyone leave the festival without getting their face melted at least once. “Mulches Odyssey” did the trick, with shredding guitars and lights that can barely be described. Umphrey’s definitely left their mark on Rothbury 2009 with two great late night sets.
