  Diane Coffee came strutting into the press lounge at the annual 4Knots Festival at the South Street Seaport in Manhattan wearing red and white pinstripes and giant, circular '70s pink sunglasses. The image matches the performance -- bright, retro, and flamboyant. Coffee later sported a thick stripe of metallic eye makeup across their face, as they wailed into the mic, truly putting on theatrics for the audience. A performer deemed "psychedelic motown" by fans and friends, they truly bring an enthralling live performance, as proven by their set at the festival that July weekend.
Recently, you may have seen some of your favorite artists and musicians rocking merch that loudly states “GENDER IS OVER” in bold white letters against a black mesh jersey. And, as I was, you might be wondering what the deal is with that. Where are these jerseys coming from? Who made them? What are they for? And most importantly…where can I get one??? So, I decided to do some intense research – AKA, I Googled it – in order to find out what all of the fuss was about. It turns out, the jerseys are repping a project called Gender is Over (If You Want It).
  Patti Smith must be a divine gift to this world. Deemed by some the "Godmother of Punk" and others the "Punk Poet Laureate," I see her myself as "Goddess Patti." Seriously, after seeing this woman dance, chant, swear, banter, and of course, sing live on stage, I am convinced of her other-worldly nature.  Check out just a few of the reasons why I think Patti is totally a deity sent to us to empower and inspire us into creative action.
Punk pioneer Legs McNeil, and author and poet Gillian McCain are the masterminds behind Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History Of Punk, a book that is largely regarded as the first and most comprehensive written piece on punk history. Please Kill Me is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a re-release and a series of readings (well, more like parties with music, alcohol, and Michael Des Barres hosting). BUST spent some time with Legs and Gillian and talked about the book, the evolution of punk, and how the show Vinyl got it all wrong.
As a queer woman, I’ve come to terms with the fact that it’s difficult to find a convincing lesbian film that doesn’t fall victim to the seemingly ever-present male gaze. Seriously, how many times do I have to endure lengthy pornographic scissoring scenes in order to get some sort of gay girl romance? It’s exhausting. Miraculously, however, French director Catherine Corsini’s Summertime (La Belle Saison), is an extraordinary exception to that tiresome rule. It’s the early 1970s, and Delphine (Izia Higelin) is a farm girl born and raised in the south of France.

Four years after Sleepwalk With Me, Mike Birbiglia is finally back with his second film as a director — and this time, it’s an ensemble dramedy. Don’t Think Twice, out today, features Birbiglia, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Keegan-Michael Key, Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard as members of a veteran New York improv troupe that just can’t quite seem to “make it” — until one of them finally does, landing a job on the thinly-veiled version of SNL called “Weekend Live.

When I first started watching Absolutely Fabulous during the ‘90s — a British sitcom about the hilarious misadventures of two self-absorbed, mid-aged (or in Patsy’s case, Yoda-aged), boozy, unapologetic career women who happened to be best friends — I was instantly addicted. At the time, I had just started college and I wasn’t sure what adulthood had in store for me. I was a budding journalist and music VJ with a Denver TV show called "Teletunes." I also worked at my college radio station as a DJ during a time when dancing till dawn at raves was the norm.
Bonafide creep Roger Ailes has resigned as the CEO of Fox News amid a slew of sexual harassment allegations. If you aren’t familiar with what has been happening over at the “fair and balanced” news channel, here is an update: The ex-host of “Fox and Friends” and formers news reporter for Fox News, Gretchen Carlson, was fired this past June after 11 years with the network. Carlson then proceeded to file a lawsuit on July 6th against Ailes, claiming that he had sexually harassed her on multiple occasions, propositioned her for sex, and then fired her when she refused his advances.
