Weeks after the fact, we're still reeling from the rush of our three-day SXSW party. If you're as nostalgic as we are, check out our compilation of highlights from The Pussy Palace including Clairy Browne, So So Glos, Widowspeak and more, courtesy of Join the Studio.

During the first day of BUST’s three-day showcase at SXSW, we were graced with the beautiful sounds of dream-poppers Widowspeak at the Pussy Palace. The indie rockers’ Western-influenced sound was a perfect fit for Austin (duh), and Molly Hamilton’s soft-sung vocals created a chill, almost ethereal atmosphere. In case you missed our live stream of the kickass house show, watch Widowspeak perform a shoegaze-y ditty below. For more American ... Read More
THURSDAY - DAY 1 @ SXSW It's 5AM and I'm running down the stairs of a Greenpoint, Brooklyn walk-up with the wild delusion that I'll get a cab to get me to Newark airport in time for my 6:30 flight. $80 and an hour and twenty-six minutes later I'm panting, out of breath, in the remnants of a line boarding my plane to Austin. There are leather jackets, guitar cases, vanity sunglasses, and black band t-shirts everywhere. The mass exodus of the stereotypical is ... Read More
If you like punk, weed, and lo-fi rock 'n' roll then you'll probably love Colleen Green. If you don't like all of those things, you'll probably still love Colleen Green. It's hard not to like a musician who makes catchy 50's/60's doo-wop-ish garage rock completely by herself. She writes and records her own music, plays all of her instruments, books her own tours, hand-paints her t-shirts, draws comics, and makes zines, all while keeping a posi attitude about ... Read More
Feminist icon and punk legend Kathleen Hanna is one of my many heroes. Defiant activist, outspoken pro-choicer, amazing songwriter, skilled musician, and prolific zine author, my friends and all kind of wish we were her. Her ground-breaking riot grrrl band Bikini Kill changed punk forever but Hanna wasn’t going to stop there. After Bikini Kill broke up in 1997, she went on to start electronic-dance-punk band Le Tigre, which is now sadly on ... Read More

As we in the BUST offices anxiously wait for the snow to melt and a warmer breeze to pass through, we couldn’t be more stoked on all of the music festivals of 2013. It won’t be hard to find a fest featuring some of your favorite artists (and other super cool goings-on) since they’re happenin’ all over the place. We’ve compiled a list of festivals you won’t want to miss this spring and summer. Noise PopWhere? San Francisco, ... Read More
Is it just us, or has porn been getting a lot more awesome over the past few years? With increasingly subversive plots and down-to-earth stars, there's never been less shame in getting down and dirty. Hell, it might even become noble, thanks to the Berlin activists behind Fuck for Forest (via Grist). The group's modus operandi is right there in the name: Fuck for Forest uses the profits of their sexy home videos to buy portions of the increasingly ... Read More
Ever since Niki and the Dove’s debut EP popped up in the BUST office last fall, I’ve been dying to see them live (and blasting their spacey, technicolor dance pop on repeat at the gym). Last week at the Under the Radar day party, I managed to catch one of their many sets at SXSW, and they absolutely lived up to the hype I’d been building in my head for months. The rest of the crowd seemed to feel the same, because Niki and the Dove finally got ... Read More
