Mexico City blogger Alejandro De La Cruz is in town and last night went to see a friend of his play at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. To his surprise, John Mayer tweeted/announced (twinounced?) that he would be playing later that night. A few hours later, the intimate venue was packed--luckily, De La Cruz already had a front row seat at a table, allowing for some good photos."There was definitely a majority of women in the audience," he noted. "Fans shouted audible love notes and Mayer jubilantly greeted the audience back. There was a brief discussion about Twitter’s relevance in all of our lives — considering it was the reason why 90% of the audience was there — and then he stepped into his tracks."
