Uncle Leon Gets Hitched

May 18th, 2015

The rumors are true!

On May 9th, 2015, Leon married his longtime sweetheart, actress and former Gotham Girls Roller Derby skater Ashlie Atkinson.

The ceremony was performed on the stage of the legendary dive bar and music venue White Water Tavern, located in Ashlie’s hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas. The event was catered by Whole Hog Barbecue and, according to one eyewitness, featured “a whole lot of booze”.

Not content to throw themselves just one party, the couple proceeded to hold another reception the following weekend, at Brooklyn’s Hank’s Saloon—the birthplace of Uncle Leon and the Alibis, as well as the setting for the band’s “Wild Ways” video and, allegedly, the place where Ashlie first gave Leon her phone number.

The severely hungover couple were last spotted stumbling onto an airplane at JFK, and are currently assumed to be enjoying their honeymoon “somewhere in Europe”.
