On stage this week: Josh Roberts & The Hinges, Susto, Jordan Igoe, Johnny Delaware

Abigail Darlington Johnny Delaware moved from Austin, Texas to Charleston to record with local producer Ryan Zimmerman.

In the past couple of years, a large group of independent musicians who share houses, rehearsal spaces and players have emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the local music scene. Several of them are playing around town this weekend, so here’s you’re chance to get familiar with Charleston’s next crop of promising artists.

First up is a co-bill performance at the Pour House on Friday featuring Josh Roberts & The Hinges, a Columbia-based group that’s been around for about a decade, and two relatively new local groups, SUSTO and Jordan Igoe. If you’ve never heard their music, expect all three to give you their unique takes on Americana, rock and alternative country.

When: 8 p.m. Friday

Where: The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Highway

Price: $10 in advance, $12 at the door

Later this weekend you can catch Johnny Delaware’s set at The Royal American. He’s the guitarist for SUSTO, but his solo work has a much different sound. He’s more of an indie rocker, with a unique voice that sounds like Franz Ferdinand’s. His debut album came out in 2013, and he’s been in the studio recently working on a follow-up, so this show could be a chance to hear his latest music.

When: 9 p.m. Sunday

Where: The Royal American, 970 Morrison Drive

Price: $5
