Over the Weekend: Yeasayer, Bob Marley, Haiti Relief Benefit and Xena Con

When we weren't hitting up Super Bowl parties, we were taking in a little Xena: Warrior Princess fandemonium and a lot of music. The weekend began with ultra-hip Brooklyn band Yeasayer playing amongst the dinosaur skeletons and wooly mammoth displays at L.A.'s Natural History Museum and continued with the 15th Annual Xena Convention, Bob Marley art show "Jammin' and Wailin'" and El Rey's Haiti Relief benefit featuring Hepcat, Dengue Fever and more.

There's a bit of a warrior princess in all of us, but, sometimes, wearing tight, thigh-high black leather isn't practical. So, what's a girl to do on those days when she really wants to channel Xena or Gabrielle? We headed to the vendor hall at the fifteenth annual Xena Convention to find out.
