Damn Jeff, I gotta say a big Thank you! this Dead segment was the perfect soundtrack for me to give my girl a back massage-to-bed. Perfect. Thank you!

I don't often stay up late enough for a live listen, so it was nice to hear that Ragnarök jam.

Nice segue there.. Love your show! Worked 4-12 hour shifts in 4 days, and to get to relax at the end to this is heaven.

Whoops. Hell of a transition though.

This Pecos jam is so sick. Holy crap. I thought it was the Dead at first too, ha ha.
Avatar 12:47am nyctaper:

Ryley was sitting on front of the stage, with GP behind him, it was kind of intense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am brycepunk1:

Yeah, the transition from GD to this jam was flawless. A+

burn one for Elkhorn
Avatar 2:15am Jeff Conklin:

How small is Jerr'ys? 100 capacity?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16am Hugo (NL):

I've been listening to nothing else than Elkhorn this weekend.
Avatar 2:17am Eiderdown:

Goddamn these new Elkhorn albums are so beautiful.
Avatar 2:17am Adamsworth:

Jerry's on Front is maybe like 50 or so, though I'm bad at guessing sizes....
Avatar 2:18am Jennifer_PNW:

I heard the Ryley Walker show with Steve Gunn and Ryan Jewell on the archive a few weeks ago. First time I've heard of Ryan and he blew me away, now noticing his name pop up on other things as of late.
Avatar 2:18am Eiderdown:

You East Coasters are a bunch of lucky cusses to be able to see so many of these amazing shows all the time. I love the PNW but damn, it's pretty far away sometimes :)
Avatar 2:19am Jeff Conklin:

as a regular listener, youve heard Ryan plenty, Jennifer ;)
Avatar 2:20am Jeff Conklin:

@Eiderdown: You need to play the shit out of these East Coast bands out there and stir up demand. And then I'll load everybody up in a couple vans and drive toward the sun...
Avatar 2:20am Adamsworth:

@eiderdown yeah, I lived in Portland OR for like a year and a half and there were way too shows a month for me (also my job was bad)
Avatar 2:21am Adamsworth:

oops way too *FEW shows I mean
Avatar 2:21am Eiderdown:

Alright, Jeff, I'll do what I can!
@Adamsworth, don't get me wrong, we have some great bands and fun shows too, but The Atlantic Coast is killing it right now
Avatar 2:23am DocBlueDog:

Avatar 2:25am Jennifer_PNW:

@Jeff, I figured as much :)
@Eiderdown and @Adamsworth, Sadly this is all too true. It's even worse in Corvallis, OR
Avatar 2:27am Jennifer_PNW:

Well, this is a nice transition from that monster live set
  2:28am Jeff Conklin:

@DocBlueDog Agreed :)
