CONTEST – The Jayhawks @ The Phoenix – January 18, 2011
jayhawksofficial.comWho: The Jayhawks
What: Legendary Minneapolis-based alt.country forebears
Why: Following a career with no shortage of identity issues – are they The Jayhawks without Mark Olson? Are Mark Olson & Gary Louris together The Jayhawks even if they won’t call themselves The Jayhawks? – the generally-acknowledged classic lineup responsible for Hollywood Town Hall and Tomorrow The Green Grass is finally back together and touring – just in time for the remastered reissues of those two records on January 18.
When: January 18, 2011
Where: The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Toronto singer-songwriter Kirsten Jones supports.
How: Tickets for the show are $29.50 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see The Jayhawks” in the subject line with your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, January 13.
What else: Gary Louris and Mark Olson talk to The Minneapolis Star-Tribune on the status of the new Jayhawks record (of course there’s a new Jayhawks record), currently being mixed and to be released later this year.
