LEOPOLD AND HIS FICTION
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.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
