  12:05am Carmichael:

Happiest of all days to all people. Roger McGuinn’s a flipping rock genius.

Favorite Terry Reid song!

Hello! Happy Birthday!
  Swag For Life Member 12:28am Roadside Picnic:

happy birthday and thanks for a great show thru the year.
Avatar 12:30am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Much appreciated. Makes the horror of turning 40 not so bad.
  12:30am zenkoan:

40's are a great period...old enough to have accrued wisdom through experience, young enough to enjoy the benefits thereor
  12:30am zenkoan:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34am Erik in Michigan:

This is good first set for the Wiffen heads
  12:35am Carmichael:

40 is a cakewalk. 40 is a cheshire smile. 40 is a moonbeam. 40 is knowing and living. You made it.
  12:35am Jeff Conklin:

How many Wiffe heads are there in the world? I know of 2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am Erik in Michigan:

I feel like the barrier to entry to being a wiffen-head is knowing that he wrote Drivin' Wheel, and hearing any other song - so I think we're all in the club now
  12:40am Carmichael:

Drivin Wheel is a wonderful song.
  12:41am phat:

40 is great!

Happy birthday!
  12:42am saucerful:

So happy to be able to listen to Avant Ghetto tonight. Happy Birthday Jeff! You'll love the 40s. Seriously...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am Erik in Michigan:

There was a Gene Clark tribute kinda thing in SF last night that looked pretty cool. Apparently the 4th year it's been held!? Need to track down some tapes...
Avatar 12:45am Jeff Conklin:

Who played?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am Erik in Michigan:

Andy from Vetiver, Meg & Charlie from Heron Oblivion, the Green Leaf Rustlers, among others
Avatar 12:48am Jeff Conklin:

WHOA! Damn, hope someone was taping for sure!
  12:51am saucerful:

Yeah, sounds like a great show!
  12:53am saucerful:

Love this Joan Baez song...
  12:53am yippie:

now i never have any expectations anymore
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00am Erik in Michigan:

Didn't know Nash produced that record...totally makes sense now
  1:00am saucerful:

I had to Google about the Greasy Bear>Duritti Column...Turns out the drummer for DC, Bruce Mitchell, was also in Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias haha
  1:02am :(:

This year is brutal for me. No choice. Sucks to spend the holidays alone but oh well

Avatar 1:04am Franco Twinkie:

Fill this nacent day with music, delicious food, faithful friends, and crazy, crazy, good times, Jeff, and you'll be able to wrestle the next decade to the ground and come out on top.
Avatar 1:06am Jeff Conklin:

:( You're not alone, you're with us right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am Erik in Michigan:

Eric is a super great dude - he's helped me out a ton with taping advice. His recordings always kill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09am suzyhotrod:

Happy birthday, Jeff! Also, I love hearing your uplifting words on mic breaks.
  1:10am :(:

Thanks for being here. FMU is one comfort through this crap, for sure. But still, can't wait for it to be over
  1:12am katharsis:

Hellos. “Because you’re free and anything might happen so...happy birthday
Avatar 1:13am Jeff Conklin:

:(: That's totally legit. It'll be over soon. Hang in there, buddy
Avatar 1:13am Jeff Conklin:

Hey suzy, aw I'm glad
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16am Erik in Michigan:

Laila pt 2/Agitation Free has had a bit of a renaissance these last few years - at least one other band (the magpie salute - former Black Crowes guitarists) have been covering it.

Yeah, not exactly going platinum - but it's something!? Great jam
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am Erik in Michigan:

Dig this new GP tune!
Avatar 1:17am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, the sooner jambands start covering krautrock rather than talking heads and steely dan, the better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19am Fuzzy:

I'll always remember spending my 40th birthday busting ass cooking and piling web on a salmon seiner during November fall dog season on Puget Sound -- hard to believe that was just over 14 years ago!

Anyway, 40 ain't 20, but it ain't over the hill either, so HBD Jeff and Keep On Truckin'!
  1:19am phat:

I need to get Garcia Peoples to play Nebraska.
Avatar 1:20am Jeff Conklin:

@phat: Inquire!
  1:21am phat:

Looking into that right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25am Erik in Michigan:

Ryley & his band are on fire right now. Caught them in Detroit a few nights prior to this show and it was sick. Tasty SBD feed of that show, plus many others on the archive: archive.org...
  1:26am Jeff Conklin:

They are better than ever
Avatar 1:28am Jeff Conklin:

  1:30am old ERIC thee hat:

So great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30am Erik in Michigan:

They listen to each other and it's pretty open. Ryan Jewell on drums takes them to another level too. So good.
  1:30am phat:

Just sent GP a note.
  1:31am saucerful:

Yeah fuckin' amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32am Erik in Michigan:

Avatar 1:39am Jeff Conklin:

Copps '90
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41am Erik in Michigan:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42am Erik in Michigan:

yeah, copps 90 is totally a favorite
Avatar 1:42am Jeff Conklin:

Everyone feel free to chime in here!
Avatar 1:45am Jeff Conklin:

lol jerry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am Erik in Michigan:

I think 10/2/77 is what I was thinking of - some of the heaviest/earliest mutron work from Jerry
Avatar 1:52am Franco Twinkie:

This one works right here right now. Lyrical and play full exchanges all around.
  1:53am Agent Peter:

Morgantown one crazy good.
Winterland NYE '78 outstanding
In person: 2nd night at Angels Camp '87
Avatar 1:53am Jeff Conklin:

Yeah Jerry blows it hard on the lyrics and it doesnt matter a bit...
Avatar 1:54am Jeff Conklin:

Need to check that 87 one...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54am Erik in Michigan:

Yeah, I'll take any Scarlet > Fire, basically
