Umphrey’s McGee and Moon Taxi Kick Off Masters Week In Augusta (A Gallery)

April 8, 2014

Noted golf enthusiasts Umphrey’s McGee and Nashville’s Moon Taxi headlined the Major Rager event in Augusta, GA as the town celebrates the beginning of Masters week that will culminate in The Masters golf tournament at Augusta National Golf Course. Moon Taxi borrowed from their latest effort Mountains Beaches Cities with tunes such as “The New Black” and “Running Wild” along with cuts from the rest of their catalog.

Umphrey’s took the stage for a two-set show that included fan favorites such as “Booth Love,” “Fool in the Rain,” and “Intentions Clear” before a mega “Bright Lights, Big City” closed the set. The band returned for a final set anchored by it’s energetic staple “All in Time” while “In the Kitchen” closed out the encore. Joshua Timmermans was in Augusta to photograph both bands.
