Every August, we get ultra-excited about the AfroPunk Festival, which takes place in Brooklyn, N.Y.C. The festival is a two-day celebration of music, fashion, art and culture. Aside from being packed with eye-popping musical performances and insanely good vibes, it's *also* a convergence of some of the most beautiful, stylish folks on the planet. We swear you won't find a better crowd for people-watching anywhere in the world.  This year's fest was full of crazy-cute outfits, colorful prints, beautiful hairdos, and fresh accessories, all of which left us feeling totally inspired.

Bustettes, we got a lot of rocking to do, and a lot of fundraising to do, and what a world we live in that we can do both simultaneously. The Brooklyn Women’s Collective is presenting the ALL GRRRL GRILL which just so happens to be a barbecue consisting of all your favorite things in one place. Beats will be provided by Krunk Pony, Gracie Tara, Jlamar, Fefegirl Wonder, TJVSTheMachine, Jeli D (and there are talks of a silent disco… jus' sayin). Read More

Brooklyn-based blues rock band She Keeps Bees dropped a new single from their forthcoming album recently, and the video for the song is just as beautifully surreal and eerie as the single itself.  "Is What It Is" comes out on the album Eight Houses on September 16th from the label Future Gods, which will be the band's fourth full-length album. If you're into some soulful, dark, and dreamy music with goose bump-inducing vocals, the album is definitely something to look forward to. We can't wait to get our hands on it. Read More
Some weeks back, I found myself at & Lovers in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The show’s line-up consisted of two openers (Lips and James Tillman) followed by the band Throw Vision. I made my way down there to chat with Throw Vision – a band that hails from Brooklyn and consists of four players: Tiff O who is lead vox and guitar; Taja Cheek on keys, vox, bass, synth, and guitar; Dan Kleederman on lead guitar, bass, and vox,; and Alex Goldberg on drums/percussion. Throw Vision’s name was derived in part from slang used in gay communities of color. Read More
