GIG: The Jayhawks
DATE: Monday 21st July 2014
VENUE: The Kazimer, Liverpool
COST: £22 including booking fees
OUR VERDICT: Made us Smile

The Jayhawks have been a firm favourite in our household for a long time. Indeed their song "Smile" is one of our favourites of all time, so the opportunity to see them in the UK, and in the small Kazimer club was a gig not to be missed.

The heat in the club was almost unbearable and the band felt it too...... only one towel between the five of them. Still, the danger of electrocution did not deter them and what a blinder of a set they played. Although they didn't actually play "Smile."

A nice point of the night was when someone asked for a request. The band accommodated by trying to play The Beatles' "This Boy" off the top of their heads. The whole crowd took over and sang it for them.

Another highlight was when Kraig Johnson took over the lead and did a couple of Golden Smog songs.

In all, a hot might but brilliant to see The Jayhawks.
