Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux and Phish archivist Kevin Shapiro will participate in two days of events at Philadelphia’s Drexel University next week. On Thursday, February 24 at 6 PM, the two archivists will participate in an open discussion moderated by Music Industry Professor Toby Seay. According to the university’s website, “These two highly regarded professionals will discuss how they’ve managed the massive recordings and holdings of their archives, how their bands make decisions about preservation and releases, and the impact technology is having on their work.”
Seay will also release a podcast that will offer select, released tracks chosen by Lemieux and Shapiro of performances by each band in Philadelphia along with a discussion on why these tracks were released. The podcast will be available Wednesday, February 23rd from 3-7 PM as a stream here.
