Bob Log III

Bob Log III is an American, Slide Guitar, One Man Band. During performances, he plays old silvertone archtop guitars, wears a full body cannonball man suit, and a helmet wired to a telephone which allows him to devote his hands and feet to guitar and drums. The spectacle has been described as a guitar dance party, full of sweaty smiles, jumps and kicks. [Wikipedia]

Bob Log III and country/bluesman Willem Maker are on tour through May. That trip includes a Sunday, May 17th stop at the Mercury Lounge (Tickets are on sale now.) And a show the next night (Monday, May 18th) at Union Hall.

Bob Log III's new disc, My Shit is Perfect, came out March 31st on Birdman Records. Maker's newest, New Moon Hand, came out in March as well, on Big Legal Mess Records and Fat Possum Records.
