The Jayhawks w/ Tift Merritt CL Recommends

When: Sat., Oct. 29 2011
Price: $25
THE JAYHAWKS Let’s say you’ve got a road trip on the calendar, one that’ll find you wandering down rural byways as often as interstate highways. Now let’s say you’re putting together some road music, something that’ll suit both wide-open vistas and heartland Americana. If this collection doesn’t include some Jayhawks … turn around and start over. The Minneapolis-born country rock band delivered essential road music in the ’90s, and two of their classics — Hollywood Town Hall and Tomorrow the Green Grass — have recently got the full-on reissue treatment to remind us just how damn good this band could be. Even better, Mockingbird Time — the first Jayhawks album in 16 years featuring original members Gary Louris, Mark Olson and Marc Perlman — finds the band’s honest (i.e., un-Ryan Adams-like) and heart-felt blend of rural folk, Byrds’ jangle and bar rock still sounding absolutely timeless.
