Jack the Radio CD Release 

When: Sat., May 12 2012

The release show for the second album, Lowcountry, by Raleigh's Jack the Radio is an ambitious one, with food trucks and a Big Boss brewery tour. It aims to be as big as the album itself—which is to say this modern Southern rock band brings in big hooks, big guitar solos and big emoting. "Devil" hints at a slow drive with Tom Petty, while "Truck Stop Man" rides a persistent slide-blues riff into the Allman camp. Then there's the jammy, wah-heavy mirror-ball rock on "A Darker Age," and "Read My Eyes," which takes a page from the Born to Run playbook. None of the influences are especially subtle, which doesn't seem to be Jack the Radio's aim either. But damn if these songs don't stick in your head pretty much instantly. —Corbie Hill
