PICTURE THIS: The Both + Nick Diamonds @ El Rey Theatre, LA 6/14/14
Aimee Mann and Ted Leo have joined forces as The Both! “You’re scrappy punk rock and I’m more like smooth jazz” was Mann’s description of the duo.
Leo and Mann have a chemistry like no other. Their humor and wit goes together perfectly.
At the start of the set Leo was having trouble with his guitar, but that didn’t stop him from continuing to rock out and showcase their songs.
Nick Diamonds (frontman of Islands) opened the show. He introduced himself as “The Neither” which got a good laugh from the crowd. The singer played a lot of new material that will hopefully become Islands songs. At the end of Diamonds’ set, the ghost that haunts the El Rey, Beauford, came to sing a song about Friday the 13th.
