Universal Sigh at the Georgia Theater

On the evening of January 17 I saw the band Universal Sigh play the Georgia Theater in Athens, GA. Universal Sigh is a “progressive jazz-fusion funk-oriented rock band” that has been gaining steam in Athens. The band’s music builds castles made of sand and washes them away. They keep you in suspense while they build, and put up funky beats to tear down in jazz-rock solo improvisation. They’re in the tradition of bands like the Grateful Dead, Phish, and Umphrey’s McGee, who create morphing musical landscapes and never play the same thing the same way twice.

My two younger brothers are the percussionist and lead guitarist.
