Sometimes angry and always stripped back to a shaky voice and a fiery, plucked electric guitar, Eric Blowtorch summons the spirit of one of his heroes, Billy Bragg, on The Promise of Power. Largely recorded in his bedroom with minimal accompaniment, most of Blowtorch's songs have great promise for a full band production. “Can't Go On Without Me” sounds a little like a lost outtake from Tommy, and the title cut could have graced one of The Jam's later albums.

Eric Blowtorch performs 7-9 p.m. March 22 at Brewed Café, 1208 E. Brady St. Mike Plaisted is also on the bill.
