Umphrey’s McGee Shares Pro-Shot “Cemetery Walk II” From Atlanta Motor Speedway Drive-In Show [Watch]

first_imgOn October 10th, prog-rock/jam outfit Umphrey’s McGee triumphantly wrapped their two-night drive-in run at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Atlanta, GA.The night’s outdoor performance was drenched by some dreary Atlanta rain, but that didn’t stop the band from delivering high-energy renditions of “There’s No Crying In Mexico”, “All In Time”, “Wife Soup”, “40s Theme”, “Phil’s Farm”, and more. To close the second set of the show, the band sent fans into the encore finale with a climactic, 10-minute performance of “Cemetery Walk II”. Thankfully for fans who couldn’t make it to the Atlanta drive-in show, Umphrey’s has now shared pro-shot footage of the performance in all its prog-rock glory.Pianist Joel Cummins led the way on keys and showcased his ivory-tickling abilities while guitarist Brendan Bayliss covered his eyes for a few moments. The rest of the band eventually joined in on the action as the instrumental built up momentum to sound more like an intense dubstep experience, Cummins continuing to deliver a fun mix of computer-like notation from his collection of keyboards and synths. All the while, lighting director Ben Factor put on quite the performance of his own with a chaotic array of colorful luminescence that filled the stage.Watch the pro-shot video from the October 10th performance below.Umphrey’s McGee – “Cemetery Walk II” – 10/10/20[Video: Umphrey’s McGee]Click here to revisit Umphrey’s performance of “Liberty Echo” as seen during Democracy Comes Alive on October 3rd.last_img read more

It’s easy to understand why Dear was selected. The Mustangs’ do-it-all athlete has posted huge numbers this season in a limited number of opportunities. He’s been a force at wideout, running back and as a return man. Dear is averaging nearly 9-yards a carry. But Murrah uses Dear mostly as a slot receiver, which is where he’ll play in the high school all-star game. However, Dear has shown this season — given some added weight and strength — that tailback may be a more suitable home for him at the college level.Tommy Champion and Javious Bardney, OL, CallawaySeemingly each week, Callaway running back Carlos Ransburgh is featured in The Clarion-Ledger’s top performers of the week. This week, he earned athlete of the week honors by posting 248 yards and three touchdowns. Ransburgh is a skilled ball carrier, but it helps when you’re running behind two future Division-I offensive linemen — those being Tommy Champion and Javious Bardney. Champion, an MSU commit, impressed at combines across the state this summer and he’s maintained that momentum. Champion is extremely athletic for his size. Bardney, a four-star junior prospect, projects as a guard at the next level. He plays with a nasty streak, finishing blocks to the whistle. Bardney reports offers from both MSU and Ole Miss and says staying in-state the biggest priority in his recruitment.Chris Stamps, CB, Warren CentralThe Mississippi State commit has led Warren Central to a 7-0 record and the No. 9 spot in The Clarion-Ledger’s most recent Super 10 ranking. Warren Central’s defense hasn’t allowed an opponent to score more than 14 points this season (including two shutouts). And Stamps has a lot to do with the success. The three-star prospect is a polished cover corner. He’s long and rangy and skilled at making adjustments to routes. He needs to gain weight — he’s listed at 175-pounds — but he’s not afraid to come up field and make tackles in the flats.Johnathan Abram, S, East MarionThe two-star prospect burst onto the recruiting scene in early September, picking up offers from Ole Miss, Kentucky, Louisville and Georgia. Abram added an offer from UAB last week and continues to add interest from several other programs. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder impressed on the combine circuit this summer and hasn’t disappointed this fall. He’s a tall, physical safety that defensive coordinators crave with more-and-more big-bodied wideouts emerging in today’s game. Abram has visited both Ole Miss and Kentucky recently. A decision is likely coming in the next few weeks.Titus Ivory, WR, BrandonThere’s a lot to like about Ivory. Brandon’s standout wideout stretches defenses deep with his size and speed. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder had another big outing last Friday, racking up 166 yards and a touchdown on eight catches. The three-star prospect could spark his recruitment with a few similar showings.last_img read more
