The Jayhawks
8 p.m. Sunday. State Theatre, 609 Congress St., Portland, $32 in advance, $35 day of show.
Straddling that sweet spot where alt-country meets country rock is something the Minneapolis-based band The Jayhawks has been doing since the mid 80s. They were Americana before it became as wildly popular as it is today. With an 11-album discography, including 2020’s “Xoxo,” some of the band’s best known songs are “Blue,” “Save It For A Rainy Day” and “Waiting For The Sun.” Don’t sleep on the opener – British singer-songwriter Wesley Stace, who spent much of his career recording under the name John Wesley Harding.
