hello friends! i hope you're all doing well. it really feels like a strange time and i hit a breaking point on tuesday... i freaked out on internet people who ended up blocking me on facebook. i hit a breaking point. i'm not proud, but i bet you're feeling that if you watch the news and read your facebook feeds. anyway, i'm better now. i have a lot of christmas shopping to do. i have music and art to make, podcasts to do and put out, skyrocket shows to play, a wonderful girlfriend that i love, an amazing family, two dogs that i love. i guess i can just focus on that and trying to make that all work. that's what i decided. my guest for episode 444 is singer/songwriter, jason robert blum! jason just released a gorgeous new album, invisible words. he made the record at plyrz studio in los angeles. it was produced by the great jim scott and features the talents of jj johnson, dave palmer, blake mills and dave monsey. find it on itunes or at jason and i have a great conversation about making the record, his many travels, our tv show idea "fishing for gonorrhea" and much, much more. i'm sure you're going to love getting to know jason. he's a good hang. before that, i sit down for a few minutes with brian and andy from the new musician/audience/venue uniting app, gigtown. the gigtown guys were in austn launching their new app which has already taken off in san diego and now they're branching out to austin and seattle. they're really good guys with a great idea to help musicians connect with their audience. check our conversation. it's informative. also go to to find out more. have a great weekend! let's get down!ciao! -jg

hello friends! i hope you're all well. i'm doing better today than i was yesterday when i recorded the intro for this episode. i had some dental work done yesterday and had some pain in my jaw and when i recorded the intro for this episode, i was on vicodin. i thought it would be fun to do an "altered" intro. other than that, things are good here. i have totally forgotten that today kicks-off the moontower comedy festival here in austin. i got a badge a while back and i'm excited to go tonight and tomorrow. i haven't really gone through the line-up to plan my route yet. i guess i'll do that after practice today. i'll let you know how it goes on friday. also, if you live in san antonio, skyrocket will be at the aztec theater this friday, april 25th. come out and say hi!episode 268 is the last of the sxsw 2014 multi-interview shows. i know. i'm kinda sad to see them go too. on this episode i sit down and talk to DTCV (pronounced detective) from the joshua tree desert just hours before they leave austin to head out on a 5-week tour. i talk to lo-fi genius, daniel hunter, about his band, analog rebellion from dallas. i talk to victory from los angeles about their brand of sun-bleached garage rock. last, but certainly not least, i talk to chappo from brooklyn, ny who had just finished a long u.s. tour at a crazy music festival. at the end of the chappo interview, they ask us to leave the hilton. good way to end it. i love all of these bands and i'm sure you will too. enjoy!ciao! - jg
