Old and dilapidated wooden villa on Madras Street that functioned as a rather excellent venue for house parties and all-age events for a few years prior to the Canterbury Earthquakes in 2010 / 2011.
Occupied by a variety of individuals connected to Christchurch live music, student radio (RDU) and all-ages (Red Panda) scenes, the house was opened up for day time shows on the front-lawn or in the living room.
The occupants lived through the 2010 / 2011 Canterbury Earthquakes, but eventually moved out – the owners then discovering how extensively damaged the building was – though the original building still stands as of 2017.
Former tenant, Red Panda member and RDU Sheep Technique DJ Eamonn Marra provided a (presumed) complete list of the acts that played the Log Cabin over the years:
- Crackhouse 5
- Sleepy Age
- (classic) Insurgents
- The Hatemen
- Jeffrey and Jack Lewis
- Wet Wings
- Canterbury Rams
- Body 125
- Thrill Collins
- Tono and the Finance Company
- Delaney Davidson
- Jack Hooker
