Because we were predisposed over at our Best New Band showcase, we sent local photog extroardinaire to the new "Ted's Berbati's Pan" to shoot Beach Fossils and get a peek at the new space. Here's what she had to say:

With only slightly less standing room, Berbati's is still Berbati's—and Brooklyn still knows how to churn out fashionable young jangle pop bands. Last night Beach Fossils christened the venue formerly known as Berbati's, now called 'Teds' after the late owner who passed away last year. The space has been rearranged by ditching the bar off to the side of the lounge area and moving the main entrance to the alley on SW Ankeny. Playing a night of young pop-influenced sounds, Beach Fossils sounded like a less fuzzy version of the Pains of Being Pure at Heart (also from Brooklyn). Supporting bands included another Pains of Being Pure at Heart-sounding band called Craft Spells and a Clark Kent and Lois Lane version of Glass Candy called Soft Metals. Pretty much everything about the show seemed familiar, which isn't always a bad thing. —Ro Tam
