You’ve heard of the amazing things going on in Russia. Right? You’ve heard of the protests in Red Square and surprise show at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. I know you’ve seen images of these fiercely brave women dawning balaclava head gear and outfitted in neon. Well at least I hope so. Russian all girl punk band Pussy Riot has made headlines over the past couple of months with the guerilla style activist work and the movement of women they are leading in Russia. Read More

Hands down, Mariah's “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is the best Christmas love song ever. But Princess Superstar’s “Xmas Swagger” might give Mariah a run for her money.
This new holiday jam is simple--it's a list of all the things Princess Superstar loves during the holiday season: from beaded sweaters, to kissing under the mistletoe, to Justin Bieber, to hot cocoa (the warm beverage), to hot Coco, Ice-T’s wife.
Watch Princess Superstar stroll around 125th Street in New York City spreading Christmas cheer, below, and buy the song here. Read More

Ah, Christmas in New York: it’s pretty much everything that Home Alone 2 made it out to be (with the exception of like, the entire plot) but better. The tree at Rockefeller Center, the chestnuts roasting on open-ish fires, John Waters putting the “X” in X-mas at B.B. King's, and Ronnie Spector’s annual Christmas Party. Read More

N.Y.C.-based editor/designer Hamish Robertson is a busy man. You would think that being the online design editor of Vanity Fair would be time-consuming enough, right? Yet somehow Robertson finds time to create websites for well-known businesses (like vegan treatery, Babycakes), publish zines and prints as Brown Griffin (from his Brooklyn apartment), and curate Afterzine, a beautifully compiled arts and culture publication.

Montreal's Claire Boucher (aka Grimes) seemed a bit shy on stage in front of a sold out crowd at NYC's Bowery Ballroom recently. She confessed that she hadn’t played a show in a while and was forgetting songs. Well, I didn’t notice. Here’s what I did notice: Grimes’ songs are basically the perfect soundtrack for a f*ed up Grimm Brothers Fairytale. It’s that tense "Hansel & Gretel lost in the woods after being coaxed to the candy house" kind of
creepy. In other words, goth/industrial synth-pop that’s eerie and drugged-up dreamy. Read More

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. Read More
