The playlists of Jack FM, the titular sponsor of the annual Jack Show, can sometimes feel like a seemingly random assortment of songs that don’t really cohere, but the lineup at this year’s concert makes some sense. Jane’s Addiction, The Cult and Garbage might come from different places and even eras, but they each revel in the power of hard-rock guitars and should complement one another back to back. Violent Femmes’ disarming pop will provide a low-key sonic contrast after a jumping jolt of energy from L.A. rapper Everlast with House of Pain. Most of these acts are content to coast on past glories, but Garbage sound like a band with something to prove on their latest collection of glittery reveries, Strange Little Birds, while The Cult rediscovered their ancient power on the recent Hidden City.
