Wednesday To-Do: AA Bondy

AA BONDY
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

There's something that sets AA Bondy apart from the other dour, minor-key folk croakers. Is it because he spent the '90s as Scott Bondy, a pouting and snarling frontman in the borderline cheesy swag-rock outfit Verbena? Is it his heavy-jawed Birmingham, Ala., accent? Maybe he has an ounce more muddy melancholy than his peers because he insists on sleeping in his car while on tour because hotels waste too much energy. Maybe it's just that he functions with such a cool-guy chill that it's easier to digest the heavy intimacy in his songs. Regardless, he's caught tens of thousands of ears since trading in his amp stacks for a harmonica neck piece and, if the buzz about his last show at Sticky Fingerz stands true, you can expect the man, his guitar and his harp to mesmerize a capacity house.
