Carrie Brownstein, who you may know as Portlandia writer and lead actress, guitarist and singer for Sleater-Kinney, and BUST cover girl, is now adding author to her extremely impressive resume. Brownstein’s memoir Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl is set to be released October 27th. As if we weren’t already totally pumped, yesterday Brownstein announced her book tour dates, and the list of guest interviewers she has lined up for the tour sent all of us here at BUST into excitement overload.

Our love for Carrie Brownstein burns brighter with each passing day. She’s a Sleater Kinney band member, an actress, a feminist, a former BUST cover girl, and a total bookworm. I even have proof! (And more proof! Further proof! Proof beyond the shadow of a doubt!).  So it makes sense she’d curate a reading list for One Grand, a bookstore-inspired project by Aaron Hicklin. Read More
Being a teenager can really suck. There’s going to be times when you don’t feel comfortable with getting advice from anyone, but sticking it out alone isn’t the best idea. A few people were lucky enough to have Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker help them out when that situation arose. In this video from Rookie, the pair answers questions teens have about breakups, first kisses, and unrequited love towards your best friend. As if Carrie and Corin couldn’t be any cooler, they give really great, solid advice. Read More
...And just when we thought Sleater-Kinney couldn’t get any cooler (ha, we didn’t actually think that) their latest project stars Bob Burger’s character, Tina Belcher rocking out to a “live” Sleater-Kinney in her very own bedroom. To be honest, we’re jealous. This animated video is a collaboration of epic proportions. Carrie, Corin, Janet and the animators behind the TV show, Bob’s Burgers put together this video clip showcasing “A New Wave” from their recent album, No Cities to Love. Read More
Yesterday punk/riot grrrl band Sleater-Kinney hosted a Reddit AMA where they not only answered questions from fans, but also released the new single "Surface Envy" from their new album No Cities to Love (Sub Pop), which is their first album in 10 years! The album comes out January 20. Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein, and Janet Weiss also came onto The Chris Gethard Show last night as guest panelists to play the made-up, ridiculous game "All Hands on the Bad One," with musical guests Priests.

Babes in Toyland are back! Once dubbed "foxcore" by Thurston Moore -- a label the Babes did not appreciate, the Minneapolis-based, babydoll dress-wearing, punk power trio that ground guts onstage in the nineties have reunited their Fontenella-era lineup for a show, presumably to kick off a bitchin' tour, in L.A. at the Roxy on February 12th. The 18 years since Kat Bjelland, Maureen Herman and Lori Barbero last stepped on stage together cannot be described as silent. Babes in Toyland influenced legions of musicians to rage and riot, including Sleater-Kinney and Bikini Kill. Read More
  It was music for the kids in high school who wore worn-out Converse and an air of nonchalance. They didn’t smoke like the others, but drank coffee like water, and listened to Sleater-Kinney with the same kind of aggression. Most were unabashedly convinced they were the only ones the band were singing to. Comprised of Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, Sleater-Kinney became enmeshed in the northwest punk scene of the early '90s. Read More
    The internet exploded this am with the news that on Jan. 20, 2015 beloved punk trio Sleater-Kinney will be releasing a new album, entitled No Cities To Love via Sub Pop Records. The intoxicatingly powerful band is made up of Carrie Brownstein (former BUST cover girl) on guitar and vocals, Corin Tucker also on guitar and vocals, and Janet Weiss on the drums. The band formed in 1994 in Olympia, WA, and put out seven albums before going on a hiatus in 2006. If you have yet to hear them, or have forgotten what they are made of, I suggest you watch Jumpers, now. Read More
Sleater–Kinney had a twelve-year career with seven epic albums; they exuded raw, riot grrrl energy everywhere they toured. The band received high praise from Rolling Stone for “pushing rock to the boiling point,” and Rob Sheffield called them, “America’s best punk band. EVER.” Not counting their 2013 reunion (joining Pearl Jam to cover Neil Young), it has been eight years since fans have had pure Sleater-Kinney goodness. However, the people at Sub Pop Records are giving fans a real gift. On Oct. Read More
Celebrities. We know 'em, we love 'em, and there are a select few that never fail to inspire us. As such, it's all the more exciting when we find out two of our favorite ladies see in each other what we see in them.

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, co-stars and creators; comediennes extraordinaire. First thing's first: if you're not watching Broad City, you're making a huge mistake. Read More
