Fine show. Where was everyone?
The sound was awful unless you moved back.

These are great photos!
Agree with "anonymous" that it was a fine show and that the sound is much better further back -- but I prefer to be right up front at shows. Sorry about the person singing along during the video. I'll have to tell her to stop doing that next time.

P.S. and yes, where WAS everyone?!

The venue is bleak and uncomfortable. The band is no longer popular. That's why no one was there.

Good show, definitely felt a little weird since it was so empty.

Photos are so much better than mine! It is sad that popularity instead of huge talent is criteria to show up for a FREE JayHawks Performance. I agree it was strange to find few people showing up & figured the cool weather may have had something to do with this. Chairs should be provided here or people should be allowed to BYO. Well, I traveled a long way to get there & it was well worth the trip!

This band is not big enough to warrant a free show in such a dismal setting. They might have done better in Prospect Park.

Jayhawks are such a solid band..they deserve more fame and recognition..I actually like it this way because the shows are easy, reasonable and accessable...like my own secret band! Bunkhouse to Tomorrow are all classic albums!

Yes, it was a really dismal setting. You would never have known that we were on the river. Agree that Prospect Park would have been much better. Also agree that they are such a solid band and deserve more fame and recognition. I too, like it this because the shows are more manageable in every way. I kind of like it when the band I like isn't that popular- as you said, Anonymous, like a "secret" band. Great album choices btw - my fav is HTH! Classic.

PS. Well how about that- I am agreeing w you so much after our disagreement months ago about Dawes and Kurt Vile. :)
