Smart Bets: Heavy Blues Fest

"When a Mississippi blues man walks into a big city bar and has a drink, starts on a downward spiral of sex and drugs to the soundtrack of Nirvana, Black Keys and Queens of the Stone Age, John the Conqueror is born." So says the bio of the Philadelphia-based guitar/drum/bass trio — but it could just as well sum up "whiskey fueled two-man frenzy of blues-driven rock ’n’ roll noise" Left Lane Cruiser or '70s prog-rock-influenced Scorpion Child (pictured). All three play the Heavy Blues Fest at Broadways on Thursday, Nov. 8. 9 p.m., $8. http://avl.mx/mx.
