Hello everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. This week’s guest is Illinois native, Brett Kreiner. Brett messaged me on Phish.net, explaining that he was a fan of the podcast and that an earlier episode, where actor Luke LaGraff talked about the importance of the song “Lizards,” inspired him to reach out and tell his story about “Miss You.”
At first, Brett said that he wanted to talk about the performance of “Miss You” from October 28, 2018 at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. But as Brett explained the importance of the song overall--not just from that performance--it became clear that “Miss You” means more to Brett and his family than one 7-minute performance in 2018.
But I’ll leave it to Brett to tell the details. So let’s join him to hear about 1980s WWF stars at Indio, the importance of Phish ballads, and making peace with your hometown venues as we talk about “Miss You.”
