Shall I tell you here that when I hit submit on the comment the app blew up and closed? iPhone.

I'm still a little unsettled from Therese's show. Concord bought part of the Apple catalog? That's just nuts. I mean, I know they got Fantasy, but ... Apple?!

Hell, yeah. I'll probably head one more time to Molcasalsa or Castaneda's, near my mom's, but one of these days I have to go west to Pico Rivera for the real shit. Best chile verde ever!

Hi all, Damn this version of Halfwit is fucking incredible! Is that Chris Forsythe on 2nd lead guitar by any chance? Sort of sounds like him.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/7/19 12:40am Jeff Conklin:

Brian Sulpizio on lead guitar.

@pavlovsfrog: I hear you, at 66 bucks its a steal for the amount of music you get and it looks really sweet!

This Wet Tuna part is dreamy.

Hey Avant Ghettoers, I had a magical day and I wasn't even stoned. haha How about you...any other magic out there?

happy new year Jeff. Fantastic Wet Tuna set there. Great way to come back to the Avant Ghetto in 2019. Greetings outta Krommenie / The Netherlands
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/7/19 2:13am Jeff Conklin:

@sufferwords: Cool. I never expect listeners to like everything I play but I do expect them to respect the work of musicians and I guess I don't see the point in bitching on here about not liking something. If there's a gun to your head making you listen, you should take the time to call/text authorities rather than register negativity here
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/7/19 2:13am Jeff Conklin:

Hey ajay, HNY to you
  Mon. 1/7/19 2:14am saucerful:

sufferwords must equal "words of suffering" ;-)
  Mon. 1/7/19 2:16am saucerful:

To be honest, I'm not totally into Wet Tuna but like what I've heard here. Personally, I'd rather hear a full Dead set...

After 7 drunken phone calls requesting Thin Lizzy in my first year, I just let the phone ring now...
  Mon. 1/7/19 2:23am saucerful:

wtf? Were the requests from the same drunken person?

Ok, it was one phone call, but it was enough

Hi, Emma, what songs did I play this morning that you hate?
  Mon. 1/7/19 2:29am saucerful:

"Hello, hellooooo...I wanna hear the Boys are Back in Town duuuude!" I used to love Thin Lizzy actually ha

  Mon. 1/7/19 2:42am saucerful:

and Emma!
  Mon. 1/7/19 2:45am Johnzon:

how do you know I have a face. maybe I was in a horrible accident. maybe I was born without a face. You never know!
  Mon. 1/7/19 2:45am Fashion Tashjian:

Jeff, feel appreciative that the ridiculous remarks on the accu got both the husband/wife duo of Armenia to comment on your show during the same set.

I'm not remotely a fan of jam bands or noodly stuff, but you arrange sets with selections that deliver an insight and/or logic into the time and place for these pieces. This time happens to be now, and we're appreciative of these moments that land in our ears, when otherwise there'd be some random garbage or music we've already heard over and over because it's familiar and in our phone storage.

Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/7/19 2:47am Jeff Conklin:

Wait, are you guys listening together and commenting on the playlist at the same time?? (And thanks)
  Mon. 1/7/19 2:50am Johnzon:

always impressed by anyone who can move their thumb independently from their fingers... I watched a youtube video where this guy said it took him ten years to get really comfortable finger/thumb picking

I don't assume anyone has a face but I assume you all know the difference between the literal and figurative
