John the Conqueror Record Release Show at MilkBoy Philly March 7

For the past four years, John the Conqueror have been winning crowds over by playing a blend of southern rock inspired from their childhoods, the punk of their adolescence, and the blues and soul that they’ve always held so closely. The end result is a band that takes its name from a folkloric slave hero with no frills rock ‘n’ roll ready to make an immediate impact. Tonight, John The Conqueror will celebrate their second and biggest release to date, The Good Life (Alive Naturalsound), at MilkBoy Philly. And it’s sure to be an action-packed show with Blayer Pointdujour & the Rockers Galore, who are getting ready to release a new LP in June, and indie rockers Thee, Idea Men, who also have their second album New Level Shoes on the way (due out May 20). MilkBoy Philly, 1100 Chestnut St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill


New John The Conqueror LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Philly's hard-livin'-lovin'-playin' blues rock trio John The Conqueror has a new LP out today, via Alive Naturalsound Records, entitled The Good Life. You can check it out over at CMJ. The band just finished up a lengthy, month-long plus tour of Europe, and will be performing next in Philly on Friday, March 7 at MilkBoy Philly.


Thee, Idea Men Opening for John The Conqueror at The Boot & Saddle Dec. 20

It’s blues night at The Boot & Saddle! Old souls Thee, Idea Men’s self-told story of their origins as a band is so wrought with sarcasm and ridiculousness that I can’t decide which of it to take seriously (probably none of it), yet this sassy self-deprecation sets the tone for their fun, old-school blues rock jams. The recent Drexel University alums released a new single this past September called “Help Me, Mama,” mixing a Foo Fighters-esque edge with a hint of rockabilly, giving us a taste of their forthcoming second album. They’ll be opening for John The Conqueror, who is gearing up for a jaunt through Europe to kickoff 2014. Rounding out the bill are Fishtown friends Stef Emery and Ryan Gaughan (of Among Criminals) together as La Capitaña. The Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Maggie Grabmeier

Free Download: "Lucille" - John the Conqueror

John the Conqueror reach out to us this morning about sharing the track "Lucille" off their self-titled debut album, which was written about the godmama of one of the members and is available for free download. The song is a good one, and it came with this sweet photo of her (above). Enjoy!
