BOG LOG III was great on wednesday night. i wasn't too familiar with him going in but was a believer on the way out. he overcomes the trappings of being the typical one-man band that has a guitar, a bass drum and a snare/hi-hat by having drum samples that he turns on and off with foot switches which allows him to play songs with more speed and intensity then you can with just your two feet. his guitar-playing is absolutely insane and he's an entertaining front man. i'd definitely recommend going to see him next time he's in town.
it's a little over a week until STATUES hits OTTAWA again. i'm really excited. if you're not familiar with the band i'd recommend tracking down the NEW PEOPLE MAKES US NERVOUS record. it is phenomenal.
here's a video of them playing one of the songs off their new CROOKED FINGERS 7".
