Jeaux animated Manda and other Los Animales characters for last night's party.

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to the party last night. Special thanks to Larry G. and Diana M. from Underground. We had a great time and we hope you did too.

Last night, the Los Animales release party at Underground happened in the shadows of a massive Swedish House Mafia concert. We were at the Grand Star, a great club in Chinatown where Underground takes place every Friday. (And where Liz DJs every other Friday.) Swedish House Mafia played at L.A. State Historic Park, on the other side of the Gold Line from us. This is significant for reasons that will become apparent when we start running Chapter 2.

Despite the sort of parking problems that come with massive Swedish House Mafia concerts, and despite the rain, we had a great turnout last night. We gave away posters. Jeaux made a DVD just for last night that featured animated versions of Los Animales characters. We will likely make that available online sometime in the near future.

Below is Liz’s set list from last night. Note that there is a nod to Swedish House Mafia (or, rather, one of its members) in the set. You’ll have to guess what it is.
