Wednesday night at the Showbox Market was packed like a good cigarette with  Hank III and AssJack enthusiasts. This rockabilly turned metcalcore show was littered with groups of bearded moshers armed with whiskey in their back pockets and pbr’s in their hands. The dreary, rainy outside air did nothing to dampen the mood of the crowd– one that bounced to every honky-tonk beat, and shoved with every scream and croon of AssJack. My soft spot for the roots of Hank III didn’t do much for increasing my interest in metalcore, but the energy was hard to argue with. After a few whiskeys of my own and a pbr in hand, I bucked up and joined the crowd for jumping, jiving and a little agro-dancing. Let me just say, jumping side-by-side with large Hank III fans is much more fun than I could’ve imagined. The enthusiasm of the night can be summed up in one lyric:  “Even though I’m broke, I got a six pack of beer”
