Watch Ikey Owens (and the Rest of the Mars Volta) Win a Grammy

The Mars Volta--featuring Long Beach's Ikey Owens, of Free Moral Agents and Look Daggers, on keyboards--won the "Best Hard Rock" Grammy last night for "Wax Simulacra." Since the Grammys only show a handful of the awards on the telecast (there are a lot of Grammys, like a lot) their award was accepted in front of a rather sparse crowd. But hey, it's a Grammy! And they beat Judas Priest and Motley Crue. That's right. Judas Priest and Motley Crue were up for the Best Hard Rock Grammy. In 2009. Yup.

Here's the video!
