In Episode 082 we conclude our 20th Anniversary celebration of the Big Cypress Festival with a discussion of the massive pre-dawn jam off Roses Are Free in the early hours of January 1, 2000. A raw, minimalistic take on the rare cover, this equally sounds like an overtired band running on extended muscle memory from their closest attempt at the LG, and a proper welcoming to the first sunrise of the 21st Century.
Songs featured in this episode are: Garcia Peoples: “One Step Behind,” The Microphones: “Here With Summer,” Gay Dad: “Dateline”
In addition, we discuss two overlooked 2019 records we highly recommend: Leo Svirvsky: “River Without Banks” and Titus Andronicus: “An Obelisk”

We want to tell you about a new show from Osiris, After Midnight. It tells the story of Phish’s groundbreaking festival on the eve of the new millennium, Big Cypress. Phish built a city for 80,000 fans in the Everglades, and capped off the festival by playing for 7 hours, ending the concert during sunrise on January 1, 2000. This five-episode series includes interviews with band members Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman, fans and crew, and looks back on one of the most unique performances in music history. We’re going to play the trailer for you now. Please listen, and go to osirispod.com/aftermidnight to subscribe.
