Guess what I've been listening to non-stop for the past 24 hours? Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, and Julie Ruin. Guess why? Because I was one of the lucky few to score entry into the Kathleen Hanna tribute show and documentary taping that took place at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn the other night. The in-progress documentary is called  The Kathleen Hanna Project a.k.a Who Told You Christmas Wasn't Cool, and if Saturday was any indication, it's going to be ... Read More
This week a 30 second sneak preview of Kanye's new video was leaked. "Monster" is an epic track featuring some of the most powerful artists in hip-hop. So what, you ask, could ruin the song? How about an accompanying video filled with dead girls. Being kissed by Kanye, hanging from Rick Ross' ceiling, lying on Jay-Z's couch - and I can't even imagine what Nicki will being doing with her allotted group of dead girls.

I am stressed to the bone, trying to organize a cross-country move while balancing two jobs and a million projects. It's freezing outside, AND I'm running late with turning in the music section for the next issue (hehe, sorry, Lisa) and yet I folded all of this up and shoved it to the back of my brain wagon the other night to see Austra perform an early show at Mercury Lounge.  Austra is a Canadian based band fronted and fed by Katie Stelmanis, who I've more ...

BUST Parties in Chicago

BY Helen in Music

What do BUST and Chicago have in common? Sub Tropical! Ok, so it's not really like a hurricane or Atlantic weather pattern or anything, it's actually a monthly dance-fashion-art party hosted by Chicago natives, Medusa's Make-Up. Last Saturday BUST had the honor of sponsoring the event, which has been known to inspire creative makeup looks and fashion outfits, plus give out cool freebies such as lip gloss or fishnet arm bands all under one roof. Oh and don't forget ... Read More
When I first saw Project 60/40 perform, I was floored. Four ladies so talented, creating a style of music so unique- I dare say it's unparalleled- made me want to know more about them right away. After some research and a coffee date with the performers themselves, I learned that they use their classical backgrounds to reinvent modern music, and vice-versa, breathing new life into old favorites and making contemporary tunes accessible to all generations. As they ... Read More
Now that it's officially December, we all could use a little push into the Holiday season. Check out Annie Lennox’s bizarrely beautiful rendition of “God Bless Ye Merry Gentleman” and the equally beautiful (and bizarre) music video. Yes, there is auto-tune involved.   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
Oh, Margaret Cho! The first time I ever saw a BUST magazine, my friend held up a copy with Cho on the cover and told me, “You would love this.” Since Margaret went to my high school (briefly, anyway), and grew up in my hometown of San Francisco, I kinda feel like I grew up with her. Her never-ending career remains impressive, especially considering she always does her own raunchy, unique, non-typical famous lady thing. And now she's just gotten her ... Read More
Peaches has always been as nasty as she wants to be. For the last decade, we've fallen hard for her ultra-trashy and super sexy style of electro-punk. But the Canadian-born cocksure shock rocker has a little somethin' up her sleeve to close out twenty-ten: her one-woman rock opera Peaches Christ Superstar Next Friday, Peaches brings her 90-minute modern twist to Sir Tim Rice and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's legendary 1971 opus Jesus Christ Superstar to the States. ...
