Neon Reverb Festival Welcomes Leopold and His Fiction Back for a Second Time

Though they’re a California band, you’d never know it when Leopold and His Fiction is in Las Vegas. Las Vegas Weekly called them “quite possibly the best thing to come out of this February's Neon Reverb Festival” and Las Vegas CityLife said “The ebullient, vigorous rock opera of San Francisco’s Leopold and His Fiction [is] perhaps the sleeper of the festival thus far.” Perhaps that’s why the Neon Reverb Festival invited them back for their fall event which goes from September 16th through the 18th. Leopold and His Fiction’s live shows are like a magnetic force you can’t resist. "This trio is a trip to watch, boiling and smashing a diverse range of musical genres that is both ethereal and bombastic," said Denise Guerra of the Campus Circle Newspaper about their recent Viper Room show. Charismatic front man Daniel James says of performing live, “We are in our element and want to be nowhere else in the world than on that stage”.

Leopold and his Fiction’s latest single, “Golden Friends” has been described as “...haunting and scratchy, and sounds as if it was conjured up in the backrooms of old Western saloons over whiskey and cigarettes,” by Tympanogram. They’ve been in John Baccigaluppi’s The Hanger with Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Little Joy, Vetiver) and this recording ventures out appropriately from the blues structure of the first two records, while engaging start to finish the theatrics and entertainment of voyage fans have become accustomed to hearing.

NEON REVERB is a music festival in Las Vegas, NV, created and organized by local, independent promoters, on a not-for-profit basis, simply for the love of music. The idea is to produce a new twice-annual event (happening every March and September) that helps galvanize Downtown Las Vegas as the center of a thriving and growing music scene. They hope both to build more community among local promoters, venues, and musicians, and to help highlight Las Vegas as a place where bands from around the country (and the world) should come and play!
