Bob Log III, opening for Eat Sugar Friday on
Fountain Square as a part of the free MidPoint Indie Summer Series, is a Delta
Blues mash-up of Hasil Adkins and Super Dave Osborne. He's a one-man band who uses his hands to scorch through razor-sharp slide-guitar licks like the second coming of Mississippi Fred McDowell, his feet to play with the fury of an armless Keith Moon and his chased-by-a-hellhound voice to howl over the musical racket he's making on any given stage.
The upcoming MidPoint Indie Summer concert series on Fountain Square (three bands for free every Friday) opens with Scottish Indie Pop darlings Camera Obscura June 4, the much-buzzed about Neon Indian June 11, MidPoint vets Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit June 18 and reunited Pop/Punk Chicago band Smoking Popes June 25. And that's just the first month.
