Planning on making it out tomorrow but will probably be brief.  What time do you guys think you are going on?

Ashland is hilarious. Technically, we played the town just north- middle of nowhere. We roll up to this shitty saloon looking spot that hasnít been updated in 50 years, and think.... what have we gotten ourselves into?!

Sure enough, by 10íclock, this place was filled up with Flat Brimmed Farmers! I swear a solid 90% of kids there grew weed or trimmed weed or did something on a weed farm. Pretty heady little community. Seems like weed is basically becoming worthless there though, canít even give the shit away! Well..... except to us... they can.. and did give it to us...

I didn't..My kid was sick and I didn't have it in me by 10 to make the drive downtown.  Hope it was a good gig.

Yeah, Ashland and Talent are cool.. So is Cave Junction.  The whole economy basically does revolve around weed.  Lots of great peeps down there.  But yeah, weed is like $1000 a pound if you're lucky.  Nobody can get rid of it for any money.  Especially this time of year.  Oregon has such a surplus it's not even funny.  If you go to the dispensary it's like $75 an ounce now.

Thanks for the heads up. Iím not a Reddit guy so itís cool to see traction elsewhere.

The general consensus seems to be..... ďthese guys should be bigger than they are - I saw them 5 years ago with 5 people there...Ē

Man. Sounds about right.  If I knew wtf to do to make it happen or knew what we were doing wrong.... Iíd fix it today.....but fuck. Apparently I donít! This whole thing is getting tougher and tougher lately...

i'm sorry to hear this, but i feel your pain.

imo there are 2 ways to "make" it in the jam scene.

1.  have a fanbase that forces the heavies to take you seriously.  this is what the first and second generation bands did so well...phish, panic, big head todd, samples all drew really well.  how many times have you heard that damn story about phish selling out the paradise in boston.  then next wave bands like sci, moe, galactic, strangefolk, all had these rabid fanbases.  it was caused by tape trading.  you start selling out 1,000 seat theaters as an independent and heavies will start to notice.  plus all the cool kids will have to be at your shows.  given the "these guys should be bigger than they are" comment, i'm guessing option 2 is your only bet.

2.  do whatever it takes to get a manager who is connected.  a good manager can get you the right publicist and an agent that is way beyond where you are.  if you make yourself look bigger than you are (the manager's job), then people will believe you are hot shit and start to come out.  see bands like spafford.  i'm sure you don't want to hear it, but a twiddle or a pppp show is the place to be if you are a heady young 20 something looking for like minded people to hang with.  it was the same thing at an sci show in 1998.

This. PPPP sold out the Cap last month (awesome show, btw) and Twiddle has done it now several times. They were playing the smaller venue at Garcia's a year or two ago. Definitely younger new jam band fan crowds.
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

Bandcamp is going to start pressing vinyl for bands! Maybe this is how we can get some Jaunt-vinyl?
