John Wesley Coleman"Live From The Astroturf" says
Come on out and catch John Wesley Coleman on Friday July 31st at 5:30 PM as he graces the stage with his self proclaimed "Trash Poet" act and rocks the Turf.

John Wesley Coleman is one of those guys who's made a ton of supremely catchy rock'n'roll records but never fully caught on outside of his immediate circle. It's a shame, because his new stuff definitely deserves an audience. -PITCHFORK

Listening to anything by John Wesley Coleman III is bound to be at least one thing: fun. He’s dubbed himself a “trash poet,” but the fact is that his work spins together comedy, music, and storytelling, all while Coleman dabbles in visual arts and screenwriting, too. His latest release, a full-length entitled The Love That You Own via Burger Records, is comprised of 10 tracks that may be Coleman’s best yet, expanding on a garage-rock feel and capitalizing on his notable sense of humor. Check out the video for album track “Hanging with the Band” in the player above, and check out more from JWCIII beyond the freshly released The Love That You Own by heading over to band camp/local record store- Paste Magazine

The Love That You Own is smart, funny, heartfelt, and it rocks, and if it does all that even while it occasionally threatens to fall apart, that makes Coleman's accomplishment all the sweeter. - Mark Deming of Allmusic

John Wesley Coleman's record on Goner Records is a modern day classic! Better than Shawshank Redemption - Tom Sharpling
