BOB LOG III
9 p.m., Downtown Music. $5.
Here, fair readers, are Bob Log III's bona fides — or if you like, six reasons to stay the hell away or get really excited, depending on your bent: He's huge in Japan (like distributed by Sony-huge and plays auditoriums-huge). He's Tom Waits endorsed (“I like people who glue macaroni on to a piece of cardboard and paint it gold,” Waits said of Log). A one-man band, he plays slide guitar while stomping on a kick drum and stepping on a drum machine. He always performs while wearing a motorcycle helmet wired with a telephone microphone. Because he sings fast and through the telephone microphone, he's almost always incomprehensible. On his three albums, he has songs called “Drunk Stripper,” “Boob Scotch,” “Ass Computer” and “Land of a Thousand Swirling Asses.”If you've got a late afternoon craving for goofy depravity, see Log's video page. SO NSFW.
