There are some of us that yearn for the days when the top of the music charts were filled with actual electric rock featuring eccentric front men and anguished guitars sounds. If these are your wishes, then James Hall and the Futura Bold at the Pour House is the gig for you. Songwriter/singer/guitarist Hall — former frontman of Pleasure Club and Mary My Hope — is back in Charleston to celebrate the trio’s debut self-titled album. Heavily influenced by musical legend David Bowie, Hall is a powerful and seductive performer, and his voice also resembles Jeff Buckley in his smooth ballads. During his heavier songs, he channels Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell a bit as well. With modern pop taking over the airwaves, it’s refreshing to hear and see a badass songwriter like this sweating over his axe and screaming his heart and soul into a microphone. Hall’s last visit to Charleston was for a solo house show in November with guitarists Jeff Caldwell and Doug Walters (both of Torture Town). This week, Torture Town and local trio L. Brown Odyssey share the bill at the Pour House.
