We are going to delay episode 125 of Radio Free Charleston from Monday to Friday this week, for reasons that will become obvious to astute viewers. So that our local music fans don’t feel neglected, tonight we’re bringing you clips of several local bands performing live. We’re going to kick things off with a reprise of two clips that we just debuted last Friday, after recording them the night before at The Pour House in Dunbar.
Above you see Sierra Ferrel with friends Mo and HoboClay, having a blast at the jam session. After the jump you’ll see Johnny “Hurricane” Compton, the host of The Pour House Thursday night acoustic jam, plus several other clips of live music from area venues.
