Jackyl -- West Springfield, VA -- December 7th, 2011
 
Went to [B]Jaxx [/B]on a cold and rainy night to see [B]Jackyl [/B]with my buddy and his cousin. There was a decent crowd there, which was surprising for such horrid weather. About 100, probably a little less.

Some band that I didn't catch the name of went on shortly after we got there at about 9:30. They played a blend of funk and rap that I thought sounded horrible. You could not understand what the vocalist was saying. That and there was someone in a [B]Panda [/B]suit dancing about like a madman which seemed to me rather gimmicky. Perhaps they would have done better opening for some more um hip-hop influenced group? Not my cup of tea

[B]Southern Governor[/B] came on next. As they were setting up we notice these long haired not lookin old enough to shave chubby boys had some Skynyrd, [B]Black Stone Cherry[/B] shirts on. And 3 guitar players. "They better damn well play some [I]Skynyrd [/I]with that many people up there" is what my buddy stated. And they played a set that def got one in the Jackyl frame of mind. However, they played [I]Freebird[/I], which I liked but seemed like a faux pax if you are not [B]Lynyrd Skynyrd[/B]. Regardless, I was impressed by an opener for the first time in a long while.

[B]Jackyl [/B]FINALLY came on around 11:30 to the tune of some Dixie sounding song. They played some songs I didn't know to start (that still sounded good), but then once they got into their (non new album?) better songs it sounded great. Jesse's mic could have used some work to make it sound better in the mix, but other than that, no real complaints. Crowd was pretty into it and energetic for the most part. Around the encore we started to smell gas. You know what that means! I was chuckling when they played "[I]She Loves My Cock[/I]" and the highlight was def the chainsaw during "[I]The Lumberjack[/I]."

Overall I am glad I came out, def would see them again.

Local hard rock dj here LOVES Jackyl, so they usually play like 1000+ venues here! Crazy.

I kinda like the Moonshine/Cocaine song, but this band almost ruined Judas Priest for me when they opened.

I was told they are on some Full Throttle telly show, and had some sort of competition when Ozzy was playing down the street...and they apparently drew a bigger crowd than Ozzy. Which I def would not expect!


I do enjoy me some Jackyl

I love Jackyl. I wish they'd realise there's a world outside the US...

I really like that show Full Throttle Saloon. He said they held their own against Ozzy but I doubt it. Sad thing is Bret Micheals played the night before Jackyl and had almost twice as many people as Jackyl. Yikes!

I haven't seen them in years but when they play on the show it's always a huge spectacle. He shot himself out of a cannon last year and is jumping off a bridge this year.
