Our Portland based writer, Elisabeth Wilson, went to see Beach House last night and had such a great time that she fell out and had an attack in the street. Read More
So last night I had a free pass to go see Small Black play a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, but opted to stay home and work on my night cheese instead.  This morning I am riddled with anxiety about having missed it, because I am quickly becoming a massive fan of their melodic Casio stylings. Their debut self-titled EP is set to come out later this month on Jagjaguwar and it's pretty much a perfect little nugget of lazy keyboards, casual boy singing, and electro thumps. Read More
We here at BUST are huge fans of the Willie Mae Rock Camp (our own Emily Rems, pictured above, formed her band through the Rock Camp!) and are on the lookout for every opportunity to help. They’re up for a Pepsi Refresh Grant ($50k!) and we’d like to call on you for your support! You can vote here once a day, either by signing up or connecting with Facebook. Easy as pie, and you’ll be helping lots of awesome girls (and ladies!) to learn how to make music.   [Pepsi Refresh Everything] [Willie Mae Rock Camp] Photo courtesy Willie Mae Rock Camp. Read More
Tom Tom Magazine is a New York based magazine dedicated to female drummers around the world.  Started last year by Taigaa drummer Mindy Abovitz, Tom Tom aims to raise awareness about female drummers, while strengthening and celebrating the otherwise fragmented female music community.  In addition to having an awesome website, they publish a full-color print magazine that features interviews, drumming techniques, and art.

Imma be up front here.  Ke$ha's songs are dumb.  They're vapid and silly and they don't make sense ("kick them to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger?"  Girl, have you SEEN Mick Jagger?!)  Behold:     <--- That's him.  You can change your mind now.  But despite her bad taste in men, I think the girl might be a witch.  All I know is when "Tik Tok" starts playing,  I start flailing and everyone has to back up about 5 feet so I can get my dance on.

Our video lady, Vanessa Rees, and I met up with Jemina Pearl before her show at Union Pool on February 13th. And just so no one could call BS on it, we taped it. Read More

It's time to meet the bands playing at our party this Saturday to celebrate our new April/May issue!  Pictured above is Derek Watson and Isabel Ibsen of Hunters, a Brooklyn based rock band who give an intense live performance, with lead singer Ibsen's strong, throaty vocals coupled with an unrelenting, driving rhythm section.  Their moody, rhythmic beats create the perfect sound to nod your head to and get your dance on.  Isabel's firecracker moves are sure enough to get your feet moving.
