Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Luke Hall, and he is here to talk about an old-school favorite: December 11, 1995 at the Cumberland County Civic Center.
I love speaking and learning from all different kinds of guests on Attendance Bias, and Luke offered a new perspective; one which I haven’t heard before: Luke is Canadian! And while that isn’t wildly different from any other fan, it does offer a unique perspective. Phish isn’t huge in Canada, and they rarely play the country these days. There’s nothing new about a person getting into Phish when they weren’t well-known, but imagine if you were learning about Phish and there was barely any interest on a NATIONAL scale, let alone a local scale. Throw in the fact that Luke first got into Phish during the mid-90s, when Phish was just becoming nationally known in America, and there’s a perspective certainly worth hearing.
Plus, Luke picked a show that is considered a Phish classic–December 11, 1995 at the Cumberland County Civic Center–that features many Phish classics at the end of one of their best tours, as well as Dog Log goofiness and a guest appearance by Warren Haynes, and both of us had lots to say.
So let’s join Luke to talk about Fall ‘95, Canadian/American exchange rates, and when we should expect an officially released Dog Log album, as we discuss Phish’s performance on December 11, 1995 at The Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine.
