Old Jack and Straightjacket Slumber Party are a couple of fresh bands in the spring mix playing at the Coppertop this week. They’ll be joined by some returning faves, starting Thursday when Bruce Jacques sets up shop in the ’Top starting at 8 p.m.

Hoodoo Revelator will serve one more shot of the blues Friday night. Then it’s a double header Saturday. Old Jack, an explosive old-school rock 'n' roll band that’s been playing around Boston the past few year, makes its Wachusett debut with an afternoon set starting at 3 p.m. Saturday. We caught up with Old Jack singer and songwriter Dan Nicklin and are crunching his thoughts into a post for later in the week.
Five Hole then takes the reins Saturday for the 8 p.m. show.
Straightjacket Slumber Party typically plays around the beaches of Cape Cod during the summer time, but mountain and band alike felt the ski and board crowd would also dig this group’s primal groove. Find out when Straightjacket Slumber Party checks into the Coppertop at 4 p.m. Sunday.
