Unstuck in time, The Avant Ghetto wanders through heavy folk, pastoral noise, spiritual rock, harsh jazz and other dimly lit corners of the universe.

Welcome back to the West Coast friendly time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 12:04am sberger:

Ditto...Sorry about the late shift but looking forward to 3 hours.
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:04am Agent Peter:

What happens in Stockholm should stay in Stockholm :-)
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:06am zenkoan:

Yeah--three hours of undistracted time for deep psychedelic dives, Dead jams, long folk reveries, Garcia Peoples, and whatever else Jeff wants to turn us on to. I'm psyched.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 12:09am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, all. Welcome to a new era....
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:09am Agent Peter:

same as the old era?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 12:10am Jeff Conklin:

Nope
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:14am rw:

Jeff! Glad you got the three hours back! Sorry about the less civilized time slot. Looking forward to another season of The Ghetto!

Glad to be here, get it while you can!
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:21am zenkoan:

Uh oh...were you sending us a message with that first track?
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:23am zenkoan:

Rosali sounds like she's channeling Elizabeth Fraser/Cocteau Twins a bit
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:26am rw:

If I were leaving NY... I'd have Colorado on the list. Other places too but CO would make the short list for sure. Not that I'm leaving NY. I've never even lived in NY. Just a hypothetical.

Man, when Richard Thompson hits it he really hits it.

I've applied to Walmarts in CO, MT, WY and UT

Wyoming might be a little too rural for me personally but it does have it's charm.

Howdy DJ JC. Checkin' in, checkin' out. Here to wander.
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:36am saucerful:

Welcome back to the old time slot Jeff (for now, at least)! Yeah, Colorado is great...have friends in Denver and Boulder. Not sure how hard/easy it is to get work there, though.
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:37am rw:

Umbria is beautiful too.
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:41am Adam West Toaster:

I’m late to the party.
You leaving us, Jeff?
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 12:53am opurt:

Looking forward to the Träd Gräs och Stenar show next Sunday at Henry Miller Library in Big Sur. I'll have to catch next week's AG on the archives.
  Mon. 9/17/18 12:55am rw:

saucerful, my daughter just graduated from CU Boulder. When we went out there to get her set up I thought there was something wrong with the people we were meeting but it turns out they're just way friendlier than people here!

opurt, that sounds like a great place to see a band like TGoS. I'm more than a little jealous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:03am snowweasel:

Your show sustains and nourishes the weasel population. Don't go!
  Mon. 9/17/18 1:03am saucerful:

Oh that's cool rw...they might have all been stoned, ha ha. Congratulations on your daughter's graduation!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:04am fleep:

Montana is beautiful to visit. Montana also has the highest suicide rate in the nation.
Just sayin'

22 June 1973 - Vancouver BC. Great show

You know what's awesome? When you dump $180 on a box set and someone handles the discs with radioactive goo that leaves glowing red fingerprints that eat into the plastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:06am Jeff Conklin:

@fleep: Unsure if that's accurate but I find it to be a comment in poor taste just the same...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:08am fleep:

It's accurate, and you may certainly delete it. What I'm saying is, vacations are one thing, living in a place is another.

  Mon. 9/17/18 1:10am Agent Peter:

There's flat Montana and mountainy Montana. Like two states separated by a common name.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:11am opurt:

rw, still tickets left for next Sunday (and Friday in San Francisco) - folkyeah.com... Henry Miller Library with 300 or so friends under the redwoods is one of my favorite places to see any band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:13am Jeff Conklin:

If 15 years in NYC never having more than 5 dollars in the bank, no health insurance for the last 10 years, and exponential overcrowding hasnt killed me, no statistic is gonna do it.
  Mon. 9/17/18 1:15am rw:

Thanks saucerful! She's determined to get a PhD so she's got plenty of school ahead. I'm just hoping she'll be able to get some scholarship funding! (And I feel like she will. She's already been securing grants, etc.)

opurt, that's a long drive from here. Not out of the question but far. They're also playing at Zebulon in Los Angeles. I've been considering that show but I don't think it'll compare to the Henry Miller show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:16am sberger:

If you don't do what you want when you want, especially while you're young enough and without traditional restrictions like spouse and kids, then you're finished. Make yourself happy. Ask me how I know this.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:19am opurt:

rw, the drive up route 1 from LA to Big Sur (and back) is incredible (while it is still a haul for you to get to LA). The advantage of the LA show is you get 3 nights of shows.
  Mon. 9/17/18 1:30am Adam West Toaster:

I second was sberger said, along with this: Better to try and possibly not succeed, then to not try, and never know if you might have. Plus, I’m an exNY’r who moved to CO. It added 10 years back onto my life.
  Mon. 9/17/18 1:31am rw:

opurt, you're messing with me. I'm looking at my calendar as if that drive next weekend is an actual possibility!

And now I've got to check out here and get some work done. Will be listening though.

Thanks somewhat in advance Jeff! Always enjoy the Sunday night Ghetto! Take care all!
  Mon. 9/17/18 1:33am Rory:

All I know is I’m loving the late night tunes :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:33am snowweasel:

CO, MT, WY, and UT...but not Idaho? This anti-Idaho bias will not stand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:35am snowweasel:

(It's the fastest-growing state in the country for a reason.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:35am Jeff Conklin:

@snowweasel: I forgot! ID is in the mix I promise...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:37am sberger:

This is the third time on this Truckin' jam for me this weekend.

The air is much cleaner and cannabis is legal in Colorado so I’m in, but can’t afford to live in another state. I hate this country!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:45am Goyim in the AM:

Turned on the radio to accompany my morning coffee making, heard the unmistakable tweedily-deedily-deedily of Mr. Garcia, and knew: the Monday Morning Avant Ghetto is back! Welcome back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/17/18 1:47am BerkeleyGuy:

Thanks for playing this show. I'd love to sit up all night and listen but my first meeting with the Inda team is at 5am.
  Mon. 9/17/18 1:48am Ajay:

Waking up over here, turn on wfmu, and the reassuring sounds of the Dead to kickstart my week. It’s gotta be the Avant Ghetto! Happy you’ve got the extra hour too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 1:59am Jeff Conklin:

hey ajay
  Mon. 9/17/18 2:07am Rory:

I remember you, Jeff on East Village Radio playing stuff like Astro. You still to the harsh stuff?
  Mon. 9/17/18 2:08am Rory:

I also remember you on My Castle Of Quiet....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 2:10am Jeff Conklin:

@Rory: I'll listen to noise sometimes while commuting on the headphones but don't wish to play it on the radio anymore (except for my tribute to WM last year, of course)
  Mon. 9/17/18 2:17am Rory:

I love black metal and harsh noise, but love calmer stuff like this. My brother is a hardcore Dead fan so I grew up on that while listening to Gwar and Slipknot in the early 2000’s haha! Then later I got into the Black, death, grindcore and punk.
  Mon. 9/17/18 2:22am Rory:

My first song that I remember liking was a Butthole Surfers song “Who Was in My Room Last Night.” Always made me laugh when I was a kid. That’s where it all started!
Avatar Mon. 9/17/18 2:39am Luisa24:

AG sounding good as a morning morning show (as opposed to late night morning)! Checking in from St Petersburg Russia! 9:40 am here
Avatar Mon. 9/17/18 2:44am Megadano:

BTW this is a slamming good show Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 2:45am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, Luisa and Megadano
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 2:51am snowweasel:

Idaho is like Utah but with coffeeshops open on Sundays, like Colorado but without the traffic, like Wyoming but without Dick Cheney, and like Montana but about 20 degrees warmer in the spring and fall. (Montana is rad though.) But please keep jamming for us wherever you go!
Avatar Mon. 9/17/18 2:51am Luisa24:

Thank you Jeff!
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 2:54am opurt:

Great show Jeff. Greatly appreciate getting that 3rd hour back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/17/18 2:59am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, all. See you next time...
