Back in June, prog-jammers Umphrey’s McGee told fans to save the dates of October 28 and 29 for a Halloween celebration down in Atlanta at a yet-to-be-announced venue. Well now, as expected, we know that venue will be The Tabernacle as the Chicago-based sextet has officially announced Hauntlanta 2011.
This run of shows will mark the band’s first two-night stand at the venue they like so much they made a documentary about it. Umphrey’s continues their Halloween tradition of mashing up originals and covers and promise “tricks, treats and more.” Tickets for Hauntlanta go on sale Friday, July 29 at Noon ET via UMTicketing with VIP packages available as well. Mashup experts Eclectic Method will be UM’s special guest on the 28th and dub reggae collective Dubconscious fill that spot on the 29th.
Umphrey’s also announced the addition of a number of shows to their fall tour plans including a few performances leading up to Hauntlanta…
