California native Angela Correa, who fronts Los Angeles indie-pop band Correatown (Correa clarified to Billboard.biz that the act's name apparently has no direct relation to the L.A. neighborhood Koreatown), played for a room full of music supervisors at Los Angeles' Bootleg Theater on Sept. 20. The show celebrated the release of Correatown's self-released album, "Pleiades," which features the song "Further" that appears on the latest soundtrack (volume 4, released Sept. 9) of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy." Early on in the set, Correa mentioned that she was "overwhelmed and humbled" by fans who helped fund the recording of "Pleiades" through donations on Kickstarter. Audience attendees included Chop Shop's Alex Patsavas and numerous execs from music music marketing company Zync Music Group. In addition to "Grey's Anatomy," Correa's singing voice was used for the character of Darlene Madison in Sony Pictures' 2007 film "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story." She also recently scored the upcoming indie movie "Sassy Pants."

A peak at the evening's set list. During the show, frontwoman Angela Correa noted that "Pleiades" "really embraces our dark side. It's our 'Dark Side of the Moon.' I listen to a lot of Pink Floyd, actually."

In addition to concerts, Los Angeles' Bootleg Theater hosts events for theater, dance and film.
