Wee-Beasties frontman Richard Haskins will perform solo at 7pm at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studio (411 E Sycamore St, Denton, 940-594-2207) and be followed by the documentary Free Richard Haskins. “I’m gonna do a rad hour-long solo set of my music following a screening of a pretty awesome documentary made by Make Something Beautiful,” Haskins said. “It’s got all kinds of crazy interviews from me in jail, and a lot of cool people are in it. I hope you dig it.” Will it explain why he performs in only a Speedo? Let’s hope so. Tickets are $10 on Prekindle.com.

See more Richard Haskins than usual at Rubber Gloves on Monday.
