  Friday, Day 3 of SXSW was exhausting, but super fun. I was out, trolling around Austin from 1 in the afternoon until 2 at night. My feet were just straight red when I got home. I started my day intending to catch Handsome Furs at the Insound Party at Club Deville, and totally missed it because it was so tough to get a cab downtown. Bummer. But, I caught School of Seven Bells at Emo's Jr.. They drew a surisingly loyal crowd,...

                                                   Since there is an overwhelming amount of things to see, do and hear at SX, I have been hard-pressed to get to a computer and keep our readers abreast of what's happening! That's Susan and I at the BUST table at Bird's Barbershop. Like I said, it was a total success and we were thrilled to be  part of the show. Later that night, at the Mohawk's Secretly Canadian/Jagjaguar/Dead Oceans showcase, I did an interview with one of my new fave up-and-coming bands, Seattle's Mt...

BUST was in full effect at Bird's Barbershop yesterday, a cute little salon-cum-venue that offered $15 mohawks, free Dewer's drinks, water and beer, and a line-up great indie bands and DJs. This was our freebie/merch table and we met tons of cool guys and girls who wanted to check us out!     Even Khan (below) from King Khan and the Shrines was digging BUST and I'm pretty sure LA-based MC, Busdriver, who got the line-up started told the crowd he masturbated to our mag. I...

Remember this album? Kathleen Hanna's side project in between Bikini Kill and Le Tigre totally ruled my high school world. My favorite track was totally 'Stay Monkey' I still think of it every time I eat cold coconut ice cream. Re-listen to the entire album here....

The world seems a bit too harsh for us lately, what with the news filled with the troubling economy plus tragic celebrity deaths. But sometimes sadness can result in beauty. The below video pretty much sums up our feelings today. Bonus points to anyone who can tell us where in NYC this looks like it was shot....

So, Austin is nuts. Not only is SXSW music madness perfectly suited to this a very cool, weird, and musical city, it was a breezy 75 degrees, just delightful for wandering venue to venue to sample BBQ, beer, and bands. Totally a way I can happily spend my day. It's predictably hard to get into good, free shows, because of lines and crowds. After getting my bearings on the venue-packed main drag, 6th street, I was bummed to see an epic line for the Paste...

BUST has landed in the middle of SXSW! After departing from Philadelphia  at 6:30 am, and with a two hour delay in Houston, we have finally arrived in Austin! Needless to say, Southwest Airlines was not flying the friendliest  skies today, but all is well, and both yours truly, BUST's Associate Music Editor, and Marketing gal Susan Juvet, are here and ready to fill you in on our rock 'n roll cowgirl adventures.    In true SXSW fashion, I'm crashing with some guy I don't know, who...

Click through for a full-size preview page of Phonogram 2.2 from Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie . For a refresher about how friggin' awesome the first one was, check out my review here (and also of McKelvie's Suburban Glamour here ). Is there anything better than cute boys arguing about music--in comics?  ...

This week some of the ladies from BUST will be heading down to Austin, TX for the annual music festival, SXSW! BUST has been a huge fan and participant in SXSW for years, not only sponsoring events, but throwing our own last year as well. Check out pics from the awesome Hangover Lounge last year here . This year we are going to be all over the fest, covering shows and parties like never before. BUST is sponsoring two majorly awesome showcases, one at the...

This past week, I got to do one of the most fun things ever: Teach Mo Rocca to knit. Mo got himself into some hot water with the knitting community a few weeks ago (yes, there is such a thing as a 'knitting community,') when he made the horrifying 'joke' on NPR's Wait Wait..Don't Tell Me that 'I hate handknit sweaters. Handknit sweaters are always itchy.' The remark caused an uproar on knitting blogs and community sites, and Mo heard all about it....
