Ladies and Gentlemen, Beatle Bob!
With today being the last day of the Austin City Limits Music Festival
, I thought it might be a good time to shine the spotlight on rock and roll gadfly "Beatle" Bob Matonis
, who, as per his habit, made the scene like sex machine, shaking his vintage-clad booty back stage (and on stage) at numerous sets this weekend. Though he's actually from St. Louis, Beatle Bob makes it to gigs all across the country, and seems particularly fond of South by Southwest
, where his presence can pretty much guarantee you picked the right showcase to attend. Over the years, I've seen Beatle Bob on literally dozens of occasions. Have you had the chance to catch this oddball rock mascot in your town?
