The Nature of Music Podcast

Jul 22, 2020

Peter Shapiro - whose journey as a concert promoter started at New York City's legendary "Wetlands Preserve" (a live music venue AND center of environmental activism) - shares the backstory about how he got involved in supporting climate change solutions and major Earth Day events.

Answering a question from a surprising fan, Shapiro reveals the truth about the magical rainbow that mesmerized fans during the Grateful Dead's 50th Anniversary shows in Santa Clara, California.  

Regarding his approach to sustainability, he talks about how the ability to green venues has come a long way since his Wetlands days, how he's reduced waste at Brooklyn Bowl (from NEVER selling bottled water or beer to using recycled truck tires to build the stage), and which artists' environmental efforts he's particularly impressed by.
