Eight Forty-Eight

Beatboxer Yuri Lane chronicles his rise and fall from cyber stardom

The internet can be a vast smorgasbord for entrepreneur-artisans. For some, it offers a tasty piece of the American Dream; others get served a bittersweet slice of humble pie. But in America, sometimes people get a little of both. That was certainly the case for Eight-Forty-Eight guest DJ Yuri Lane. Lane’s wild ride through the world of internet fame is the subject of his latest performance piece, a multi-media beatbox show, MeTube.

Yuri Lane' show opens Nov. 4 at Francis W. Parker School on North Clark Street in Chicago. He will be performing Nov. 11-12 at Victory Gardens Theater in Chicago.
