If anyone reading this was planning to wear a bulky, reindeer-faced Christmas sweater to Ingrid Michaelson’s holiday celebration tonight, think again. According to the native New Yorker, dropping to the floor isn’t too uncommon in the heat of the moment at her performances. When I ask if festive attire by way of ugly sweaters is encouraged at her annual Holiday Hop, she laughingly tells me, “There seems to be a trend at my shows of women ... Read More

Oh man, I miss the Cramps! Thanks to an intrepid tweeter over at @thingsfromhere, I was reminded that way back in 2004 we ran a little piece in BUST where we asked the Cramps' Lux Interior and Poison Ivy to make us a Christmas Mix tape. They called it Black Christmas, natch. It's full of early Rock n Roll gems like Christmas in jail, by the Youngsters, and Don't believe in Christmas by the Sonics. Here is a link to it, with the MP3s - Enjoy!
Sadly we lost Lux a ... Read More

At my place it's important to play Christmas music at all times to remind me to get in that holiday spirit! This year, The Raveonettes have dropped a dreamy Xmas ditty--appropriately titled "The Christmas Song"--to sum up everyone's mood about the "most wonderful time of the year." All I need now is a warm blanket and some hot chocolate...

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. For over 20 years, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and living legend has hosted a New York City Christmas ... Read More
