Show Notes

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. You know, April 2022 doesn’t sound like it was that long ago. In fact, at the time of this recording, it was just one year ago. But in terms of atmosphere and the public’s attitude toward Covid and indoor, live events, it could have been a life time ago. Compare April 2022 with April 2023, and for those of us with immunocompromised conditions, it’s a completely different world.

In my world, the beginning of that mental and emotional mindset was solidified during Phish’s 4-night run at Madison Square Garden from April 20th to 23rd, which was actually a set of rescheduled shows from New Year’s Eve, postponed due to a spike in Covid cases.

Today’s guest, Adam Perle is here to remind us of how that outstanding run began, with an 18+ minute “Carini” that kicked off night 1 and ran through several segments before the band remembered that they have 8 sets to go!

But Before we begin today’s episode, I just want to make a note that Adam and I are longtime friends, and this is–I think–just the 2nd Attendance Bias episode to be recorded live in person. So if the audio sounds a little bit different, or if you hear the microphone pick up a plane or police siren in the background, it’s just that we were in a room with the windows open to be comfortable while recording.

But that aside, let’s join Adam to talk about imposter syndrome, the Phish Live in Brooklyn DVD, and much more as we discuss “Carini” from April 20, 2022 at Madison Square Garden.
