A few years ago, Brendan Bayliss of Umphrey’s McGee and Jeff Austin–at the time a member of Yonder Mountain String Band–formed a new musical project called 30db. The project was a great outlet for the two songwriters, even if it only lasted for a short period of time. After unofficially parting ways in 2012, the pair has made it a point to come together each December in Chicago over the last few winters in 2015, 2016, and 2017, treating fans to originals from their 2010 album.
Today, Bayliss and Austin announced that they’ll be performing another one-off show on Friday, May 11th, at Martyrs’ in Chicago, Illinois. A somewhat out-of-left-field announcement given that the duo normally performs in the winter, the show is a welcome surprise for fans of both Bayliss and Austin. Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday, April 6th, at 10 a.m. (CDT) here.
