Leopold & His Fiction wake up sleepy SXSW showcase

After a busy schedule at SXSW, Leopold & His Fiction are still making an impression on new fans. The Austin Chronicle's Chase Hoffberger attended the Hella Hipster Hoedown showcase at Hoek's Death Metal Pizza in Austin last week. Though he felt much of the show was a bit of a snooze, he woke up happily when Leopold & His Fiction took the stage.

"Fortunately, there was San Francisco trio Leopold & His Fiction and their rip-roaring set of country-soul post-punk," wrote Hoffberger. "With bassist Micayla Grace stomping in rhythm to drummer Jon Sortland's barnstorming fills, guitarist Daniel James dialed up choogaloo on 2008 title track "Ain't No Surprise" with style coming straight out of the 1970s."
