got tix to go see bama-tex in pasadena. can't find a room in pasadena (that's not outrageously $$$). don't know anything about LA. where should i look to stay - with the following priorities

1. relatively easy access to/from LAX
2. proximity to the rose bowl (access to metro station a ++)
3. cool bars/restaurants for wednesday & thurs nights.

thanks. appreciate the input.
