Local girl-made-good alert: Katie Eastburn, ex-Springs denizen and current member of indie band Young People, is proving to be a woman of many medias. On March 21, Young People are due to release their third album, All at Once (Too Pure), which is sure to tickle the eardrums of experimental, kettle-clanging music lovers everywhere. Eastburn (who, in the interest of full disclosure, is the daughter of Indy contributing editor Kathryn Eastburn) also has just released a DVD of short performances called Starter Set: New Dance and Music for the Camera (Kill Rock Stars), showcasing dancers from various fringe groups. Eastburn recently was featured in the February issue of Elle magazine. Check it out and support our homegirl.

Remember that part in 8 Mile, when Eminem is readying to battle, but Tony Danza butts in to explain that true happiness comes from living off the land? Me neither.

It's not a delicious beverage, but an open turntable and mic night, every Friday from 6 to 10. Get there early to sign your bad self up.
