Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell on Being "Drummed Into Shape" at Arts Magnet

Elizabeth Mitchell, emceeing Saturday night's Arts Magnet "homecoming"

In a lil' bit, Pete'll post to DC9 at Night some audio and visual highlights from Saturday night's Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts homecoming shindig, during which Norah Jones, Edie Brickell and Roy Hargrove paid homage to their alma mater. (Erykah Badu was a last-minute no-show, alas.) Pete's even got an MP3 or two -- of what, can't say at the moment, but do check back. Till then, then, here's a photo Pete managed to snap of the night's emcee, Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell, Class of '88.

Of her return to the hallowed halls, she told Unfair Park: "They told me I was lazy. They told me I was undisciplined. And the funny thing is, I was. So I've spent my entire career trying to regain my footing. But I just told them that, and they said they say that to every student. I was drummed into shape here." And a fine shape it is -- artistically speaking, c'mon. --Robert Wilonsky
