"Just Won't Do" is the softly sassy, acoustic premier track from trio Wise Girl's newest EP, Sing Me to Sleep. The band is fronted by Abby Weitz, whose pop vocals carry off Wise Girl's bubblegum rock sound perfectly. She's part Taylor Swift, part Liz Phair, and her flat-ironed hair is dyed a purply auburn. "Just Won't Do" might sound cloyingly sweet, like many other pop tunes where a female singer pines for her lover and tries to cajole him into returning her ... Read More
  The Spanish art director and photographer Diego Arroyo takes an unusual and refreshing approach to photographing the tribespeople of Ethiopia's Omo Valley. Instead of the portraits of tribespeople we might be familiar with, those with a clinical or sociological-- and often problematic-- perspective, he navigates lifestyles different from his own “in search of the subtle” gestural and expressive fibers that tie us all together as human ...

    Recently, NYC subway stops and bus shelters have been plastered with the faces of little girls in all their smiling glory. Printed over the image of each girl is the headline "I'm a Girl" and then, smaller, "I'm Beautiful the Way I am." In between those lines are listed the various ways that the girl is "beautiful": "I'm a leader, adventurous, outgoing, sporty, unique, smart and strong," for instance.     Are you feeling the warm-fuzzies ...

Last night’s Communion Records gathering at the Lower East Side’s Rockwood Music Hall brought together a plethora of indie rock/folk bands of varying popularity, including Brooklyn’s own Savior Adore. Other fine acts included Tennis, On an On, Poor Remy, The Districts, Belle Mare, Salt Cathedral, Great States, Night Sweats, Tor Miller, Michael Daves, and Leif Vollebekk, whom we had the pleasure to meet outside the venue. Each band had space to ... Read More
With less than seven days left for Banksy’s New York City residency, titled “Better Out Than In,” the British street artist still has admirers and dissenters, more or less, on the edge of their seats, and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg mostly frustrated. Each day in October has welcomed a new work on the streets of the Big Apple, varying from classic Banksy mischief to insightful mobile and kinetic works that could have easily been mislabeled as ...

Though it's roughly 8 billion degrees in NYC right now, it's time to start thinking about winter...and more specifically, about BUST Magazine's Holiday Craftacular and Food Fair, our city's largest, best-attended, and arguably most fun craft extravaganza! On Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15, over 250 vendors of fancy foods, eclectic vintage, and handmade gifts and goods will set up shop at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th St. between 6th and ...

I used to get all sorts of giddy at the thought of summer camp so, of course, I'm extra excited for the camp-esque launch party of she and reverie's spring/summer 2014 collection, appropriately titled "Camp Versailles."  The lifestyle lounge collection is crafted in Brooklyn from soft knits, washed silks and adorable details like merit badges and delicate lace.   While adulthood has its perks, we generally like to have our glitter cupcakes and eat ...

All over New York City, art is everywhere. From the star-spangled ceiling of Grand Central to the mosaic tile under the street sign at the corner of Spring and Elizabeth, art is the thread from which New York is woven. But for women in the arts, it remains difficult to gain the visibility of a Times Square billboard. That’s why, in 2006, the artist Alice Mizrachi founded Younity Collective, a 120-woman strong network of urban artists who put together shows, ... Read More
  Why is it so intriguing to peek into the past? Think about how much time you spend flipping through old family albums, vintage pictures in shops or garage sales, or - dare I say - Facebook albums of yesteryear. To me it’s clear: old photos are magic. There's some universal connective tissue between our world and the world before us, and photos are a fast way into the past. In these photographs from Life Magazine, you find hints of places ... Read More
  Worlds collide! Jay-Z's latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, is a hat tip to the contemporary art scene. As if being married to the Queen art historian herself wasn't enough, Mr. Carter is releasing six pieces of his own art to accompany his record. The video for his new song “Picasso Baby” seems to be the first. For the vid, Jay stared into the eyes of famed performance artist Marina Abramovic in Chelsea's Pace Gallery ... Read More
