Umphrey's McGee has played here so many times over the last few years that you'd almost think the guys were from here rather than from Chicago. The band revisits our state right after its new studio album, Mantis , hits the streets on Tuesday, January 20 for shows at the Aggie (Jan. 22), Boulder Theater (Jan. 23) and Fillmore Auditorium (Jan. 24). In other news, Keystone's Friday Night Lights free concert series with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (Nov. 21), DeVotchKa (Nov. 28) and Girl Talk (Dec. 5) makes it worth the drive up there, especially with night skiing and lodging specials that start at $89. Here's a rundown of the other shows going on sale this weekend, or recently announced. For ticket information, click on the venue links.
