“The Giant Leeches” screening at Caffeine Supreme, 20th & F Street, at 8 p.m., Friday, October 8th, Free, 873-4712. During the ‘50s, cold war hysteria had moviemakers scrambling to conjure up scary monsters for celluloid. I can only imagine producers sitting at a table, thumbing through science books and stopping on a picture of a leech. In the film, rubber suited actors hold victims hostage before slowly draining them of blood. Sounds like Wall St. to me, and classic turkey of a film. Lovin’ it!

The Rozzes, Velorio, The Mowglis, and more at The Gate, 2010 O Street, at 7 p.m., Saturday, October 9th, $7, All Ages. Bakersfield’s The Rozzes are a young lot, but their sound is all vintage garage buzz. Writing catchy guitar-driven tunes sure to make any hipster bob their heads in unison, they’re influences are all over the place. Latin rockers Velorio also make a rare all-ages show appearance, as do folksters’ The Mowgli’s from Venice, California. Take a listen at myspace.com/themowglisband. Really good stuff.
Metal Sanaz, Sothis, Band of Orcs and more at The Dome, 2201 V Street., at 6 p.m., Sunday, October 10th, $12, 327-0190. Fans of mind-bending hard rock in all its gory glory shouldn’t miss this show. Hosted by the “mistress of metal” herself, Metal Sanaz, it’s also land on 10-10-10. Spooky, huh? Just wait until you catch a glimpse of headliner, Sothis, whose satanic black metal is no joke. Costumed shock rockers Band of Orcs remind me of an updated version of Gwar. Bless yourselves before entering the mosh pit.
