Today’s jam is another less conventional Floyd cover. Umphrey’s McGee, known for their awesome covers, doesn’t disappoint with this one. For their second annual UM Bowl show, they played a jaw-dropping 44 songs! This epic mashup of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Pink Floyd’s Another Brick In the Wall was the encore to an incredible night of music.
While the mashup looks weird on paper, it is oddly satisfying to listen to.
If you aren’t familiar with the UM Bowl, it’s separated into four quarters’, all with their own distinct theme. Here are the themes for UM Bowl II
