The 11th annual Underground Music Showcase (UMS) is now just two days away, and we’re very excited. How excited? Well, four days of 300 performances kind of excited. 25 venues in one neighborhood kind of excited. Generationals, El Ten Eleven, Colourmusic, Sage Francis and Black Heart Procession kind of excited. If you still don’t get what we mean, watch the video below of Aaron Collins from Machine Gun Blues (and A. Tom Collins) at last year’s UMS … that kind of excited. Get it?
