LEOPOLD AND HIS FICTION
Leopold and His Fiction performs at Stickyz Sunday night.
8 p.m. Stickyz. Free.
Here we have Leopold and His Fiction
, a garage rock band from Austin, Texas. These guys aren't your typical bash-away-at-two-chords-and-scream style outfit. They mix in some skilled playing and actual singing along with the screaming and bashing. You know, real musical-type sounds.
According to the band's bio, they "absorbed pieces of the Motown catalog along with the protopunk resonance of Iggy's Stooges and molded them into a personal version of the rock 'n' roll dream." This isn't really related to the music, but I must point out that Leopold himself (actual name: Daniel James) looks quite a bit like the love child of Freddie Mercury and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Bonus: This 18-and-older show is free! Is there a better way to spend your Sunday evening? Perhaps, but probably not.
