Friday, Day 3 of SXSW was exhausting, but super fun. I was out, trolling around Austin from 1 in the afternoon until 2 at night. My feet were just straight red when I got home. I started my day intending to catch Handsome Furs at the Insound Party at Club Deville, and totally missed it because it was so tough to get a cab downtown. Bummer. But, I caught School of Seven Bells at Emo's Jr.. They drew a surisingly loyal crowd, and their effortless pop-psych ... Read More
                                                   Since there is an overwhelming amount of things to see, do and hear at SX, I have been hard-pressed to get to a computer and keep our readers abreast of what's ... Read More
BUST was in full effect at Bird's Barbershop yesterday, a cute little salon-cum-venue that offered $15 mohawks, free Dewer's drinks, water and beer, and a line-up great indie bands and DJs. This was our freebie/merch table and we met tons of cool guys and girls who wanted to check us out!     Even Khan (below) from King Khan and the Shrines was digging BUST and I'm pretty sure LA-based MC, Busdriver, who got the line-up started told the crowd he ...

Love Is In The Air

BY Web Intern in General

So my sister, my one and only sister, is getting married this summer. In my quest to find a great gift, and helping her out with all the planning, I've come across some pretty awesome wedding-related goodies. If any California based BUSTies are also planning to tie the knot, check out photographer Max Wanger. His engagement photos for 'Joanna and Alex' and 'Grace and Dominic' are exceptionally adorable. I love the balloon and candy themes! It's just too bad he's ... Read More
Remember this album? Kathleen Hanna's side project in between Bikini Kill and Le Tigre totally ruled my high school world. My favorite track was totally 'Stay Monkey' I still think of it every time I eat cold coconut ice cream. Re-listen to the entire album ... Read More
It seems the world has hit a new low when it comes to women and body image. Fitness First, a chain of gyms in the Netherlands, launched a new ad campaign -- they rigged a scale up to the benches in bus stops so that when someone sits down it displays their weight in big red numbers. The display is right above their logo, of course, so that as soon as someone is appalled by the number they know exactly where to go to change that. Enough is enough! Just last week, ... Read More
The world seems a bit too harsh for us lately, what with the news filled with the troubling economy plus tragic celebrity deaths. But sometimes sadness can result in beauty. The below video pretty much sums up our feelings today. Bonus points to anyone who can tell us where in NYC this looks like it was ... Read More
So, Austin is nuts. Not only is SXSW music madness perfectly suited to this a very cool, weird, and musical city, it was a breezy 75 degrees, just delightful for wandering venue to venue to sample BBQ, beer, and bands. Totally a way I can happily spend my day. It's predictably hard to get into good, free shows, because of lines and crowds. After getting my bearings on the venue-packed main drag, 6th street, I was bummed to see an epic line for the Paste Magazine ... Read More
BUST has landed in the middle of SXSW! After departing from Philadelphia  at 6:30 am, and with a two hour delay in Houston, we have finally arrived in Austin! Needless to say, Southwest Airlines was not flying the friendliest  skies today, but all is well, and both yours truly, BUST's Associate Music Editor, and Marketing gal Susan Juvet, are here and ready to fill you in on our rock 'n roll cowgirl adventures.    In true SXSW fashion, I'm ...
