Oh, you know the Eels. Well, unless you somehow missed the last decade of television and movies, you know them. They’ve popped up when angst required background music (Chuck, Shrek, probably too many Grey’s Anatomy episodes to count). It’s angst with a beat, though, and Mr. E’s wonderfully gritty, woeful voice.
The Eels are playing a show next Friday, August 12, at the El Rey, and we’ve got some tickets to give away. The Submarines – a local band that you may recognize from their many residences at The Echo, or maybe from their anti-capitalist anthem that made it unironically into a few iPhone commercials – will open. To win tickets to this great show, leave a comment with your favorite Eels song. Major bonus points if you can name your favorite Eels song used in a movie or television show. Good luck!
