Hi everyone, and welcome to today's episode of Attendance Bias. My guest today is Dave Waxman. Dave is a former employee of Phish Dry Goods, he worked at a bar with former Phish road manager Jason Colton, and he also recently created a merchandise website called Maybe So Maybe Lot.
While I was promoting an earlier episode, Dave messaged me and asked that if I ever needed anyone to discuss the band's version of "Waste" from 8/9/98, that he was available. "Waste" is usually a disposable song, especially from that show in Virginia where the band busted out the famous "Terrapin Station" encore. Since he messaged me about "Waste" and not "Terrapin Station," I figured that there must be something great to talk about.
After I listened to "Waste," it was obvious why Dave wanted to discuss it...and we'll get into that later. We also discussed that it would be silly of us, almost stubborn, to not talk about "Terrapin Station," even if it's not the focus of the episode.
So let's join Dave Waxman to talk about both "Waste" and "Terrapin Station" from the Virginia Beach Amphitheater on August 9, 1998.
