So, last week we posted about Record Store Day , when indie music shops across the country hosted events and appearances by awesome artists. Well, that was last Saturday and while I wasn't able to go to any of the events, it looks like they were pretty fantastic. I was very upset that I couldn't go to Generation Records to see my favorite band, the Bouncing Souls, live and acoustic (*sigh*) so I thought I'd post a couple of YouTube videos of their performance.

Celebrate the notorious filmmaker's big 6-3 by checking out his sculpture exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery . You'll find a sculpture of Ike and Tina Turner, a jar of La Mer face cream and a giant roach motel. There are also some photographs in the exhibit, so go over to the Super Touch Art website and check it out . His work is on display through the end of May, so if you're out on the West Coast and can get to the Gagosian, you should definitely go see it in person. --Liza (Photo via supertouchart.

All Y'all is reminiscent of a few other garage rock bands you may already know, but that doesn't mean it's not a good listen.

Glam-rock, blues, and old-school rebel folk rule on this homage to a dead child star.

This breezy debut from Cotton Jones makes for one smooth trip.

Ridiculous, fabulous, and hilarious.

In the mood for some politically charged poetry? Then be sure to check out Tapped Out: Words on the Water Crisis at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery ) in NYC this Saturday. The show - organized by BUST writer and Poetic People Power founder Tara Bracco - will premiere seven new commissioned poems about the water crisis - privatization of water, scarcity of the resource and the dangers facing fresh water. The event will feature several of the city's best political poets including Bracco, Erica R DeLaRosa, Andy Emeritz, Frantz Jerome, Angela Kariotis, Dot Portella and Jonathon Walton.

Tomorrow night Bags for the People will be holding a Sweatshop Social at Spacecraft Brooklyn . They'll be making reusable tote bags (or, as they say, ''totes cute totes''). All you have to bring is your hollow leg and some clean fabric; they'll supply sewing machines, scissors and lots o' home brewed beer (why does that sound like a dangerous combination?). The event is from 6:30 to 8:30 on Thursday, April 23 (OK, so that's technically after Earth Day, but whatevs). Spacecraft Brooklyn is at 355 Bedford Ave in Williamsburg.
