The Occupy Movement is kicking it up a notch. Tomorrow, May 1st, Occupy is calling for a general strike of the 99%, a continuation of the historical May Day, which has been International Workers Day for over a century. Regardless of your political leanings, the hype around tomorrow's events calls for some attention.
In Bryant Park, there will be free food, a free market, public art, the Occupy Library, and a rehearsal for the Guitarmy, which will later be led by Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine. In Madison Square Park, the Free University will pop up. Read More

We at BUST are big fans of JD Samson (of Le Tigre fame)—and we're so stoked to know that JD likes us back! You may remember JD’s tour blog for BUST when the band formerly known as MEN hit the road with CSS a few months ago; now the highly danceable band/performance art collective are going by the name JD Samson + MEN, self-releasing a new EP (called Next) on their own label (MEN Make Music) today, and letting BUST be the first to share a track off Next.
Next is the first of four EPs that JD Samson + Men have slated to release this year under their independent label. Read More

Our first week of tour with CSS has been sooo fun! We are chasing their bus all over the west coast in our charcoal colored Dodge Caravan. This tour we have a drummer with us which is super duper exciting. Lee Free is our drummer, and he is playing a lot of the percussion samples from our record on live drums. We are super happy with the new texture it brings to the show. Blowtorch is at the sound helm again and we are just thrilled to have the family back together.
(JD met a few cool vaginas in Portland OR @ The Wonder Ballroom!")
Two people came up on stage so far. Read More

You guys, do you know about Who Took the Bomp?, the new Le Tigre documentary? I was lucky enough to check out its New York premiere last week at MoMA and I have three words for you: go see it. If you can watch it in a theater full of like-minded riot grrrls, even better. If not, nab the DVD when it comes out in June and relive those blissful, dance-ridden years in the privacy of your own home, where no one will look at you strangely if you try to emulate the band's choreographed moves (bonus).
