Bob Log III @ The Wick 8/5/2014
Leader of the one-man-band that bears his name, Log assures that his gigs are perfectly appropriate for the younger set, despite the fact that one of his most popular ditties is "Boob Scotch," a song that's about, you guessed it, drinking Scotch off boobs and is often acted out by bare-breasted attendees of both sexes at shows. Kids, like boozers, "drool, fall over, and are mostly just having a good time, but there's always the surly one in the corner."Arizona's one-man-slide-guitar-band, Bob Log III, brought his audience-participation "party mess" (and his dinghy) to NYC, rocking the McKittrick Hotel on Monday (8/4) and last night (8/5) at The Wick. Both shows were with his Tucson neighbors The Pork Torta. The Wick show also featured openers DN'T and pictures from that are in this post.
It's hard to be surly at a Bob Log III show, which he describes as: "One man band. Guitar. Party. Mess." Oh yeah, he wears a helmet (think Evel Knievel) and often "sails" on top of his audience in a rubber dinghy (three falls; one injury). "My shows are like the un-birthday in Alice in Wonderland," he explains. "I do parties for no reason. All over the world, all the time." No presents needed; just presence. - [Village Voice]
