Bob Log III

July 10, 9 p.m.

River City Pub

Should you never have had the joy of seeing Bob Log III play, let me attempt to describe it for you: picture a man in a shiny blue jumpsuit and a pilot’s helmet wired to a telephone receiver, playing slide guitar with all the dirty, scuzzy joy in his heart. Add to that a kick drum and foot cymbal, the myth of a monkey paw in place of a right hand, and a set-list that includes songs named Boob Scotch, Bubble Strut and My S**t Is Perfect, and you’ll begin to get the gist. It is loud and strange and electrifying, and how ecstatic it all sounds, that guitar glazed with a kind of sublime and honey-dipped happiness.

Neil Dees danger thrill show

July 12, 8-11 p.m.

The Last Drop

$10

Neil E. Dee started “doing weird stuff” in the late 90s and he’s parlayed that into a career full of walking on broken glass, taking spikes to the face and swallowing swords, among other crazy antics.

River City Pub
