LowJack Performs Its Fifth THON Show

LowJack entered THON’s stage this evening as the fifth live act of the weekend. The band, performing for the fifth year in a row, started off their set with an original song followed by a cover of the song “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry. Unfortunately the band didn’t include a guitar solo at the end of the song like Marty McFly did in Back to the Future.

Moving into the set, the band segwayed into crowd-favorite in “Ants Marching” by the Dave Matthews Band, complete with a violinist. It become clear at this point that the set would be much like the one we’re familiar with at the Phyrst and other local bars where LowJack has made its name. Near the end of the song, the crowd became distracted as there was yet again a marriage proposal on the floor.

With a little lull, which included songs that some of our parents would have listened to when they were in college, the band played Avicii’s popular song “Wake Me Up” which started to bring the crowd back in. The first few chords of “Shipping Up to Boston” made famous by The Dropkick Murphys immediately filled the BJC with energy including a sing-a-long to the song’s chorus. The sing-a-long continued with “Wagon Wheel” which brought the crowd together before the band hit them with crowd-favorite “Sweet Caroline”.

LowJack moved onto hits like “Stand by Me”, “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?”, and “Jumper”, garnering some excitement from the audience.

The band fittingly ended with “Under the Bridge” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers which culminated in a wave around the BJC, finishing out the 24th hour of THON Weekend.
