i saw “a dangerously unexpected tribute to la music with musical direction by stew, featuring the cover problem” at the california plaza last night, part of the (via grand performances series. the california plaza is a really cool performance area (the stage is actually within a part of the fountains at the watercourt).

the show was pretty good — the cover problem performed what were basically mash-ups of songs about los angeles or by los angeles bands. one of the best mashed together the eagles’ “hotel california” and iron butterfly’s “in-a-gadda-da-vida”. one of the special guests did a cover of van halen’s “jump” that was great, too.
