If you weren’t able to snag a ticket for atmospheric jam band Umphrey’s McGee at the Fillmore, worry not, likely Electric Forest-goer. And even if you did catch the show, you can keep the party going with Ypsilanti improvisational outfit Stormy Chromer, who’s teaming up with Detroit-based funk band Act Casual for the official Umphrey’s McGee afterparty at City Club. Part prog rock, part rolling jam band, Stormy Chromer comes packing funk, bluegrass, and some serious classic-rock shredding, with a trove of live recorded sets posted to Bandcamp to, you know, keep the afterparty going. Act Casual, a project which originated as a basement-sized, well, casual jam, has blossomed into a tight four-piece with a penchant for robust and noodly jams. DJ’s Jay Misanthropia, Blake Trinske, Dejan, Jack Donevan, Scüter, and Beanstalk will also be tag-teaming the DJ stage.

Doors open at 10 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, at City Club; 2400 Bagley St., Detroit; 313-962-2300; Tickets are $15 or $10 with an Umphrey’s ticket stub.
