BOB LOG III

Tue., Aug. 30, 10 p.m.

It’s a one-man show that’s earned the reputation as being a guitar dance party like no other. A freaky, circus-like, and somewhat spacey experience — Bob Log III is known for wearing a cannonball suit and a motorcycle helmet. Aside from the outrageous elements, Log III is impressive on the slide guitar. He also sings and plays the drums with his feet. He’ll be joined by Kevin Dowling, Fitness Hour and Human Pippi. $8

The Foxfires, BitchnDudes, The Kominas, Lara Americo & The Cocker Spaniels

Wed., Aug. 31, 9 p.m.

Earlier in the year, The Kominas, a Pakistani-American punk band, were kicked out of a Donald Trump Rally. It’s unlikely that Trump would understand the bands’ satire behind lyrics like “Sharia Law in the USA” or “No One’s Gonna Honor Kill My Baby But Me.” The Boston-based band was featured in the documentary, Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam. With The Foxfires, Lara Americo and more. $5-$7

God Save the Queen City Residency

Wed., Aug. 31, 10 p.m.

The band has been off the radar for quite a few years, but this final night of the God Save The Queen City residency at Snug Harbor is a don’t-miss with the “return of” the Houston Brothers headlining. Also on the bill are the talented pop-rock songwriting of Jason Scavone and the talented jazz of Fat Face Band. There’s also a “special guest” listed, but your guess is as good as ours who that might be. $2-$10

P.S. Your Cat is Dead!

Wed., Aug. 31, 7:30 p.m., Thu., Sept. 1, 7:30 p.m., Fri., Sept. 2, 8 p.m. and Sat., Sept. 3, 8 p.m.

Queen City Theatre Company is kicking off it’s 10th season with a dark comedy. This one follows a man who is down on his luck — he’s been robbed twice, his girlfriend cut ties with him and he’s just been sacked. To make matters worse, a burglar breaks into his home and ties him up — all the while lending a listening, flirtatious ear to his troubles and informing him that his cat is dead. $23-$25

Let the Good Times Roll

Through Sept. 4

This yearly skateboard deck art show has picked up wins in CL’s Best of Charlotte for good reason. Artists purchase new or salvaged skateboards and give them new life through art. Locals like Alexandra Loesser and Phoebe Alicia gave us a peek (one of Loesser’s works features David Bowie and Alicia’s features kittens) and CL graphic designer and artist Dana Vindigni shared another kickass board design (pictured) that goes down the rabbit hole.

Two to Watch

Through Sept. 10

This exhibit presents two local artists that you should be watching. The first is Nicholas Napolentano, a hyperrealist figurative with a message. The flyer features two semi-nude women in bed in a fetal-like position. The second artist is Matthew Steele, who creates wooden sculptures that resemble complex manmade infrastructures. Reception on July 15, 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Free admission
