Though I’ve never considered myself to be a huge fan of his, Jack Johnson is an artist that always seems to draw a bit of my attention. As someone who seems to be genuinely in love with the music he produces, his work ethic and his pride are commendable. Now, as the first artist to ever headline the newly-added Friday night show at Boston Calling, his massive following is sure to be out in full force. 

For fans of: Amos Lee, G.Love, the Format, Of Monsters and Men
For a taste, check out: “Better Together,” “Sitting, Waiting, Wishing,” “Flake”
