Kate Bush returns with an unusual album that is both old and new, and brilliant as always. Released in the US, May 17th on her own label, Fish People, the new record entitled The Director's Cut contains Kates select musical revisions from 1989s The Sensual World and 1993s The Red Shoes and its billed as The Directors Cut. Since her 1978 debut, The Kick Inside, Kate Bush has carved a very individual and innovative path as a musician, composer, visual artist, technician and performer. The list of people influenced by Kates work is vast and varied.

If you've been to New York City's Terminal 5 venue, you know that it's essentially the cage in the apocalyptic film Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Hordes of people are crammed into a two-tiered concrete arena with weird cable "fencing" on the 2nd floor to keep them from falling a few hundred feet to a live soundtrack. But it was actually not a bad place to see NYC-based band Cold Cave, now on tour to promote their sophomore album Cherish the Light Years (Matador). Then again, I wasn't being shoved around in the pit on the 1st floor, either.

Come join Big Freedia in shaking your BUST bootays to some loud Bounce music! It should be a wild night, with lots of bass and boozy, sweaty dancing goodness.Big Freedia is going to performing tomorrow on Driggs Ave, Brooklyn. The party is being thrown in a century old Polish dance hall. She will be joined by DJ Rusty Lazer, DJ Barney, and the sultry/fierce vocals of LaurenSara.

The first time I saw a screening of the new Judd Apatow/Kristin Wiig vehicle Bridesmaids, I felt like I was watching an experimental film. I'm not talking Maya Deren or Chantal Ackerman, of course.

On May 1st, where did you eat lunch? It was Sunday, so I ate mine at home, in the living room in front of the television. But for a select group of people, an artful meal was served on the subway by the supper club and experimental culinary event host A Razor A Shiny Knife. On the L line diners were served six courses as the train moved from Manhattan to Williamsburg. At each stop more food was brought aboard, so the timing had to be perfect for the delivery of hot food, especially since the dishes served were no simple feats.

In her current installation Knitting Is for Pus****, Polish artist Agata Oleksiak, (Olek) has taken craft to a new level. Previously having merely covered people, bikes, and cars, she has now covered an entire apartment with her intricately looped yarn and left no surface untouched by her crocheted creations. Much of the furniture featured is from Olek's own apartment, including her bed, which she apparently misses so much that she occasionally sleeps in the Gallery to feel at home.

Here at BUST we love cooking shows, recipe blogs and generally anything food related, (see our Food issue out now) but honestly, this is THE BEST cooking demo EVER!! Meet the Vegan Black Metal chef as he demonstrates how to make Pad Thai, it's the best thing I've seen in a long while. Yes he sings the entire 14 minute demo, and head bangs while the "Heat of Satan" cooks the "glorious Pad Thai!" I hope Martha Stewart invites him on her show real soon.

Growing up I loved reading about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her sisters Mary and Carrie as they moved across the country from Wisconsin to Kansas in the Little House series. I devoured the series, from Little House in the Big Woods to West From Home, and when I finished those I started reading Laura’s mother’s stories, Caroline’s books, and Laura’s daughter Rose’s books. After that I read Caroline’s mother Charlotte’s books.
