Little Boots , the electro-pop sensation of the moment, had her big
coming out party last night at New York's Le Poisson Rouge. The
show - ostensibly a release party for her upcoming EP, Illuminations, was
sold out well in advance, filling the room with an odd mix of
fresh-off-the-bus hipsters and a V.I.P. section packed with crusty

Little Boots (real name Victoria Hesketh) didn't ... Read More

I just saw a totally charming little musical that should be required viewing for NYC BUSTies and their besties! Written and performed by super-talented real-life BFFs Melanie Adelman and Ellie Dvorkin , MEL AND EL: SHOW AND TELL grabbed me by the ovaries the minute I walked into the Ars Nova theater .

I got your new awesome album right here. Cryptacize hails from Oakland, CA (fans of Deerhoof will recognize guitarist Chris Cohen) and I've been jamming out to their new record, Mythomania, since it came out a couple weeks ago. Its melodies are addictive (like Nedelle Torrisi's vocals) and moments of endearing twee and weirdness shine through the slow-synth jams and catchy, rockin'-pop hooks. They're hittin' the road next week so click through to see if they're ... Read More
