Inside the El Rey. (05/02/07)
Teddybears, originally from Sweden, do an amazing job at blending rock and electronica. The opening band was Honeycut, who were pretty good too.

Surprisingly, it was my first time inside the El Rey Theatre, despite having lived around the corner from it for about six years. In fact, it was my poll location whenever I voted (although the polling booths were only in the lobby).

We had a celebrity sighting too. Well, not much of a celebrity unless you watched Top Design, the reality show on Bravo. We saw Andrea, the one with the bad hair that made it to the Final Four (she’s wearing the hat in the picture below). I kept trying to get Tim to tell her, "See you later, decorator!" the lame tagline they use when they sent a designer home, but he wouldn't do it. :)
This was our celebrity sighting of the night.
Even if you haven't heard of Teddybears, you may have heard their music, which is used in a lot of commercials. Intel Core 2 Duo, Cadillac and Heineken are some of the companies that use Teddybears music in their commercials.
