Rain prevented me from early arrival to the inaugural Catalpa Festival held at Randalls Island. The 1st act that I caught was Umphrey’s McGee, a band I will always associate with my friend Steve from The Fine Line, a local band that played at my college. It is his favorite band, and one that he always recommended.

I caught a brief glimpse of them at Bonnaroo, but this was definitely a more intimate setting than their ridiculously packed tent at ‘Roo. While the type of music isn’t my thing, I enjoyed their sets a lot. That’s right these guys got to play two sets, right after each other. You don’t just get to play two sets, that’s something that you earn, and they definitely have earned that right.
