New Year's Eve is traditionally a busy night for social activity with many partaking in events that celebrate the end of the year and that welcome in the new year. For music lovers, a lovely way to ring in the new year is celebrating with your favourite band and partying the night away. Personally, I haven't been to many New Year's Eve concerts, but I have been tempted to travel out of town to see a band or two. One band that has played some New Year's Eve shows in their hometown of Minneapolis that I have been tempted to attend is the Jayhawks.
For the next couple days leading up to New Year's Eve (and a bit after), I'm posting a few random live recordings from December 31st (not this year). The first show is The Jayhawks opening for fellow Twin Cities band, Soul Asylum at the State Theatre in 1998/99. It's a great sounding show and again I am posting FLAC (loss-less) files for download. If you are having any troubles downloading or playing the files etc, please let me know. Sorry about the last post, this concert should be complete. Enjoy!!
