The Drop Daily with RJ Bee
5 Things You Need To Know for Wednesday, May 20th:

1. Road To Now 4th Anniversary! There was a lot happening when Bob and Ben launched the first episode of The Road to Now on May 19th, 2016. It was the year of a Presidential election, there was an intense feeling of partisanship in the air, and people were everywhere- at concerts, in classes, on the sidewalk. They talk about how things have changed, and what is happening now. Congrats guys!

2. Daily Soundcheck—Roseland Ballroom 2000. One of the more intimate shows in modern Phish, the 3,200 seat Roseland Ballroom was an incredibly tough ticket. Filmed for VH1 this soundcheck features fun takes on many classics. A thirteen song soundcheck with one of the coolest venue histories make this one fun episode!

3. 6pm—Dave Matthews Band 5/30/06. This week’s DMB Drive In is a show from 5/30/06 from Maryland Heights, MO.

4. 8pm—Bob Weir with The National Rebroadcast. This week for Weir Wednesday, there’s a special rebroadcast of ‘The Bridge Session,’ filmed live on March 24th, 2012 at TRI Studios. Produced by HeadCount and directed by Justin Kreutzmann, this studio performance features members of The National exploring songs of the Dead and The National.

5. Moments in a Box—Let Creativity Flow. I was inspired to mention this series that we produced earlier this year after reading a series of articles about how this current pandemic may change music technology forever. Hosted and narrated by Amar Sastry, this 3-episode series goes deep on music and technology. It features interviews with people from Splice, Union Square Ventures, Downtown Music, and Aron and Jon from The Disco Biscuits.

We got to get over the hump. See you tomorrow!
