Road trip: The Jayhawks, Sunday in Fairfield
Road trip tip
Sunday at The Warehouse, Fairfield
The Jayhawks will always be included as one of the founding and iconic "alt-country" acts along with the likes of Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt. But over time, with remaining original member/genius tunesmith/vocalist Gary Louris in charge, the 'hawks have become a tremendous pop band. Louris seemingly channels great, old-style "radio" choruses as though his big brothers had been Pete Ham and Alex Chilton. The Jayhawks are on the road behind the typically hooky "Back Roads and Abandoned Motels" album and hit the Warehouse in Fairfield for an 8 p.m. show Sunday. It's only 94 miles, so you can comfortably watch the Patriots and still get to the gig in plenty of time. The venue's at 70 Sanford St. Tickets are $43-$48; (203) 259-1036, fairfieldtheatre.org.
