We'll have a full recap of all three Jayhawks shows at First Avenue tomorrow, but for the time being: If you aren't already planning on going tonight, GO TONIGHT. Last night's performance veered toward transcendence several times, as the band played a lengthy regular set in addition to a five-song encore, ranging all the way back to the "Bunkhouse" album (their self-titled debut, which was just reissued) and even including a song from the post-Olson period the Jayhawks' discography, "Tampa to Tulsa" from Rainy Day Music sung by Tim O'Reagan. Other highlights included "Two Hearts," "Wichita," and of course, "Blue."
