Even though I was sick as a dog and filled with green boogers from the shoulders up, I ran-skipped all the way to the BUST office when I got word that my Joey Roth Ceramic Speakers had arrived. "I hope you don't have to send these back; the box is huge," my editor informed me. And I'm glad that I don't have to send them back too because at this point, I would put on a onesie and wrestle someone to the ground to be able to keep these things.
Joey Roth lives in San Francisco and received his degree in Industrial Design Theory from Swarthmore in 2006. Read More

I don’t know about you but there is only one record I reach for at this time of year – Phil Spector’s ‘A Christmas Gift for You.' From the ‘ringadingadingdongding’ of Sleigh Ride to the multi layered Frostie the Snowman, it’s the only soundtrack you’ll ever need for wrapping, baking and decorating. Read More

Check out the video from their song "Shoes" on Yo Gabba Gabba...

Thanks to a good friend who had a spare ticket, I was fortunate enough to spend last Friday evening at Webster Hall here in NYC with indie/art/prog/whatever you want to call them-rockers, Mew. Having no experience seeing the Danish band live, I was pretty excited to see what they had in store.
The evening opened with the Brooklyn-based band, Bear in Heaven. I try to stay open-minded when it comes to opening bands, especially when they are preceding highly known groups, but in all honesty, I was quite disappointed. Read More

We've been fans of Rachel Trachtenburg since she was but a wee lass, bangin' the drums for her family's band, the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. So it's a little hard to believe that she's turning 16. What's not hard to believe though, is how many awesome people will be helping her celebrate on December 13th at the House of Yes in Brooklyn! With performances by Murray Hill, Care Bears on Fire, and Rachel's new band SUPERCUTE, this is a sweet 16 party you will not want to miss.
Rachel's Sweet 16 Show, $10
Sunday, Dec. 13th, 7pm - 1am
House of Yes, 342 Maujer St. Read More
