Umphrey's McGee returning for Nitefall show
Umphrey's McGee, the Chicago (by way of South Bend, IN) jam band will return to Des Moines for a Nitefall on the River Show June 26. While most Nitefall shows are held at Simon Estes Amphitheater, this one will take place at Brenton Skating Plaza.

Umphrey's McGee performed a Nitefall show at Simon Estes Amphitheater last summer, and on the main stage of the 80/35 Music Festival in 2013.
Tickets $25 in advance, $30 at the door and go on sale Saturday. Go to Nitefalldsm.com.
