Glad you liked the show. I did the same thing in Portland, Maine a few weeks back--skipped out on Lucinda. But a thread I started under General about not planning to stay for her generated some heated posts!

I saw a Chicago Tribune review of the 10/17 concert posted on the Lucinda board. Here's the Jayhawks part:

"The Jayhawks' stellar opening set once again highlighted how criminally underrated the Minneapolis band is. Tackling country rock by way of Bob Dylan, the Byrds, and the Band, the four-piece filled its songs with countless melodic flourishes that recalled four decades of classy classic rock compressed like diamonds down to similarly brilliant four-minute gems. "
