After six weeks on the road, its longest tour yet, local band Mumford’s is excited to bring its act back home. Frontman Nate Logsdon said the band is more than ready to return home and play a show for its hometown fans.
“All the time away really just reinforced how much we love Ames,” Logsdon said. “We’re going to add it all up and put on the most energetic and wild show we possibly can.” DG’s Tap House will host the band’s return show Saturday, featuring many local artists and close friends of members of Mumford’s. Doors open at 5 p.m., and only a half hour later, Longshadowmen kicks off a long evening. Isaac Norman, founding member of the band, said he anticipates Mumford’s return.
“I’m acutely aware that Ames is about to become something truly spectacular, and it’s because of Nate and Mumford’s,” Norman said. “We’re really excited to start the evening off for them.”
Strong Like Bear will take the stage next, just before Mumford’s first set. Logsdon said the first set will contain new material and a variety of songs, while their set beginning at midnight would be “pure rock ‘n roll, sweaty and over the top.”
“Mumford’s is an experience and not just a show,” Soal said. “After they’ve been on the road so long, I think it’s going to be something mindblowing.”
