Taking a book club and turning it into an all-girl, reading-inspired, song-fest? What will they think of next? Once I peeped these deets below on nonsense nyc , I was hooked (though it would be cool if they added some women writers to the mix in 2009, doncha think?): Bushwick Book Club - Tuesday, Jan 6 Unparalleled songwriting nerdery. Local songwriters Phoebe Kreutz, Chloe Matheou, Liv Carrow, and Susan Hwang perform songs inspired by, and based on, Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. Book-themed food and drink...

A while back, I posted about the weird youtube/FOC mashup phenom of people (mostly ladies) videotaping themselves lip-sychning to various Flight of the Conchords songs. Well, seems like the Conchs themselves have gotten wind of this weirdness, and so now HBO is running a Flight of the Conchords Lip Synch contest on their site , in order to promote the new season. They've already posted a few entries; I'm not sure if these are real or faked as examples for further submissions, but anyway, they are...

One of the best things about holidays and living in New York is finally having the time to check out the amazing resources the city has to offer. Last week on my days off I made it uptown to the MOMA and finally got around to seeing Pipilotti Rist's installation 'Pour Your Body Out'. I had huge hopes for it after seeing clips of it and pictures online weeks before. When I got there it was really crowded (I guess we all had the same...

Five Points Band Times is hard. Fun is not. If you're in NYC Monday night, pack up your sins and unburden yourself at 'Gutless and Guilty' , a night of music and comedy happening at Santos Party House! The night will include: Bread and Puppet Theater's production of 'Dirt Cheap Opera', a bawdy, 45 minute adaptation of the famous Brecht/Weill 'Three Penny Opera' - a story of the gangster Mac the Knife and his brand new wife Polly newly mixed and freshly rebaked. Then music by: Lily and...

A while back you may remember Tara and I gushing about the Akron/Family show we stumbled upon at SXSW. Since then, we've developed a full blown love affair with this band which is why we were SO excited to hear that these boys are gearing up for a new record, (coming out on Dead Oceans) and 2009 tour! The band will be playing a short run of December dates, culminating with a New Year's Eve performance, (with Deer Tick!), for what promises to be an all...

As much as the Holidays can sometimes suck for grown ups (the rushing, the shopping, and the hassles) I really do love Christmas, and here are at least three excellent things I can recommend to get you thru any stress and strain you may be feeling. 1. A John Waters Christmas CD , including number one hits like Santa Claus is a Black Man , Merry Christmas Baby Jesus, and Fat Daddy. This cd gets heavy rotation in the BUST offices and has been a favorite...
