What You Missed Last Weekend: Shock and Awe by Big Jack at Toops 2014

Here's What You Missed . . . 1400 people stand in a murky muddy pit as rain pelts their heads on a night so dark and dank even the moon has disappeared. Only a thin red glow from the stage floor is visible spelling out the words “Big Jack.” Soon a faint light reveals their fearless lead singer: Francis Crouse, he tilts over to one side as he always does and flashes that warm smile like your favorite uncle would at Christmas dinner. That is the one quiet moment of warm and homey comfort that Big Jack affords you. In an instant, the bedlam begins.

BIG JACK 930 - TILL

Now, you are no longer slogging the mud and braving the rain. There is no mud, there is no rain; just you, Francis and the boys chanting out together anthem after anthem until your voice starts to tear. You are part of the Big Jack army when you go to see Big Jack, and Toops 2014 was no different.

For those you who haven’t seen Big Jack, know that this not a group of guys running through an AC/DC set list, it’s a real show. These guys are masters of shock and awe; “Angus’s mid-show strip tease makes the point.
