The homey Defamer has the scoop on the end of the Eastside's indie cred...

Hipsters, say goodbye to your East Side Fortresses of Indie Rock Solitude. Spaceland, The Echo, Silverlake Lounge: They're all targets of a coming invasion of celebrities looking to colonize your empire of thrift-store t-shirts, faux-hawks, and sweatbands. Lock up your babies! Hollywood is hungry for your blood!

The panic comes after Christina Ricci + boyfriend were spotted at a recent Spaceland show.

Ah, don't be so surprised - you knew it was coming. It was only a matter of time before the celebrities turned to indie rock: they've got iPods to fill up too, you know. And how can anyone - famous or infamous - say no to a concert venue that laughs in the face of the smoking ban?

Anyway, what will be L.A.'s next hot 'hood? Marina Del Rey? North Hollywood? How about... Calabasas????

Post your pick in the comments below. (And yes, we're kidding about Calabasas.)
