This week at BUST we're dishing out your weekend plans early and giving you time to party plan. Eons better than the Super Bowl, early bed time, or your usual Sunday night plans, next weekend is the anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention, known today as the first women's rights conference that laid the groundwork for women's right to vote. So, women, this gives you a full six days to plan a date with the favorite women in your life and what a great excuse for a (probably) long overdue femme fest.

         Resident Bust fav Amanda Blank has released a free track from her new album 'I Love You' coming out on August 4th. The song 'Make It Take It' shows off Blank's diverse talents when it comes to music. Download it here from RCRD LBL.

Reader David Blake brings us this little piece of pure summer adorableness. His impossibly cute three-year-old daughter gets a kick out of Kathy. BUST: We're for the girl in you, and the woman. Ya heard.

You may not be aware, but you are hurting yourself. Hurting yourself by not listening to First Aid Kit, an adorable and low-maintenance two-girl ensemble from Sweden. Reverse that  damage and dig into their kit for some grade a bandaging. They have lovely voices and play their own instruments to a blend of folk and indie that's truly a tonic. They cover Fleet Foxes! They harmonize! They wear sweaters in the forest! Check them out here , and let the healing begin.

This Friday night be sure to check out the grand opening of Old Made, a brand new vintage boutique in Brooklyn brought to you by neighborhood darlings Leah Kroll and Frances Pezik! The shop will not only offer the most adorable in vintage clothing and accessories, but will also bring us revolving art shows, live music, and storefront BBQs! Yep, the neighborhood just got a whole lot cuter.

  It's getting late on a Thursday afternoon, and my guess is that it's that time of the week where you start daydreaming your weekend plans. Allow us to provide some smoke and fog to keep your head in the clouds. This Sunday, July 12th, the spectacular new Williamsburg Waterfront show series (at the new Jelly Pool Party Space ) is going all out with a show featuring Ponytail and Jemina Pearl of Be Your Own Pet (who both have graced the glossy pages of BUST!) as well as Mission of Burma and Fucked Up .

        Lewis' newest release 'See Fernando,' a 60's spy-themed parody video full of backdrops with splashes of neon color, car chases, and slow-mo choreographed fight scenes. Lewis herself makes a debut about halfway through the video in an adorable retro Pan Am-esque flight attendant outfit, quickly transitioning into a short trench coat with oval shades and a breezy scarf around her head that keeps her identity under wraps. Yes, her style is most definitely as alluring as the catchy music. I like this video so much I'm gonna watch it again now.
