Friday, Oct. 21
It's been ages since Claire Danes starred in a major flick. She's gone indie, lately, and while typically we love independent films, it's about time that we can pop into AMC or Harkins to see her. This Friday, Oct. 21, the lovely Danes appears in the Steve Martin film "Shopgirl." The movie is based on a novella written by Martin, and he co-stars in the film. Danes' character works at Saks Fifth Avenue in Los Angeles at the glove counter to pay the bills as an artist. Her life was dull until she meets Martin, who sweeps her off her feet. All the while she's being pursued by Jeremy (Jason Schwarzman). Supposedly, hilarity ensues. With Danes, Schwarzman and Martin, "Shopgirl" is worth the $10 to see in a theater.

As a general rule, any band from Seattle is going to be rad. The city has a special music scene with great labels, venues and clearly some kind of magic. Daphne Loves Derby is just one more example of Seattle's killer scene. The indie-emo band will be rocking the Clubhouse, 1320 E. Broadway Road, with Atlanta pop-rockers Copeland. What you get out of this show is up to you, but the guys in Daphne Loves Derby say, "Nothing whatsoever feels better than hearing a song for the first time and knowing it will be your favorite for weeks to come." Ditto. Who knows, maybe a Daphne Loves Derby song will become your favorite. Show starts at 6 p.m., and tickets cost $13. See or

After years of student complaints, ASU is finally getting a film program.
