Watch: Shakey Graves, Denver’s Esme Patterson play “Dearly Departed” on Conan

It has been quite the week for Greater Than Collective artists. On Monday, Denver comedian Andrew Orvedahl made an appearance on the "Tonight Show," and on Tuesday Esme Patterson joined Shakey Graves for a performance of "Dearly Departed" on "Conan." Patterson stood side-by-side Shakey Graves' Alejandro Rose-Garcia front and center on the Conan stage as the two played through the track off "And the War Came" (which was released last week).
