According to the Drexel University website:

"The Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux and Phish archivist Kevin Shapiro will be here for two days of events and workshops. On Thursday, February 24th at 6 PM in Stein Auditorium, 111 Nesbitt Hall (3215 Market St.), David and Kevin will participate in an open discussion moderated by Music Industry Professor Toby Seay.

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.

Professor Toby Seay is a veteran recording engineer who has worked with Dolly Parton, Randy Travis and many others on numerous Gold and Platinum albums including eight Grammy Award winners. In support of this event, Toby will 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 via "

If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

MiguelSanchez that should be really, really cool. i would love to hear more about how their "systems" work. also, i'd like to hear how the dead and phish do things differently. obviously, phish has had more technology to assist them along the way, especially in ways of preservation. should be a cool night.

I saw this on a tv screen in the lobby of my dorm here at Drexel, and i was completely shocked! I feel like I can actually meet people here that like phish and the dead. They're hard to find in a school like this.
