Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. 1999 has been a very popular year to discuss on Attendance Bias, and for some reason, July of 1999 has been chosen 7 separate times by various guests. With today’s episode, we are nearly through the first two weeks of that tour, which is becoming legendary…at least for me and my various guests.
Today’s guest is Brad Gordon, who chose to discuss Phish’s show from July 4, 1999 at the Lakewood Amphitheater in Atlanta. July 4th is always an extra fun show, and today’s is no exception. But what made today’s conversation extra fun was Brad’s preparation and enthusiasm. Brad clearly loves this show, but he REALLY loves talking about it and spreading the good word about July 4, 99. Not only that, but he’s an avid listener of this podcast and so he knew my common opinions and even went so far as to quote former guests from prior episodes. Although Brad and I had never met in person, the conversation felt familiar and I was enthusiastic for hours after we ended the recording. I hope that the energy comes through over the next hour or so.
So let’s join Brad to talk about the rumors surrounding the millenium, Vultures, and much more as we discuss July 4, 1999 at the Lakewood Amphitheater, in Atlanta, GA.
