Girl Trouble

BY Emily Rems in Music

I just peeped this interesting little tidbit on Pop Bitch : On MIA's 'Paper Planes,' the word 'weed' has been bleeped on western daytime radio. In Indonesia and Malaysia, when Katy Perry's song 'I Kissed A Girl' is played, the word 'girl' is ... Read More

New Orleans has been dealt yet another blow this past week with Hurricane Gustav's visit to the Gulf Coast, but one of the best ways to help the city heal has always been contributing to its musicians. One of the most unique acts in the city, the New Orleans Bingo! Show, is visiting New York for three shows at Spiegelworld this week, and I can't think of a better setting to see this vaudeville/cabaret/carnival/lounge/performance art act. If you love old jazz, ... Read More

The Return of the Nasty Jam

BY Callie in Music

  My band 3Pac$ is playing tonight at Bodega. Which is one of my new fav spots to cut a rug for various reasons, one being it is around the corner from my house. If you are in New York and you like to shake your ass you should totally hit this up. Check the pictures from the first Nasty Jam. Shit gets crazy, limbo on the dance floor crazy. We are playing with frequent BUST DJ, the booty bass master DJ Dirty Finger. THE NASTY JAM IS BACK.... THAT ASS ... Read More
    In case you missed Morningwood rock out at the BUST party the other night, here is their hilarious new video for Sugarbaby. Not sure why I'm so disturbed by seeing the guy and the puppet together, it's kinda creepy. I do love their ... Read More
Banging on some drums is just what happened at this year's 88 BoaDrum, which was last Friday (8/8/08) and featured  88 dummers playing an 88-minute-long song!  Whew!    This jam happened last year in Brooklyn (on 7/7/07) and was  led by Japanese noise rockers the Boredoms (thus, the name  Boadrums?).  This year, the Boredoms handed off maestro duty  to Brooklyn art-rock gurus, Gang Gang Dance.   People  gathered at ...

Rock 'N' Roll Giveaway!

BY Team Intern in Music

I’ve watched Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp For Girls grow and kick butt since their first session in 2001 teaching girls ages 8-18 how to rock hard, but living on the east coast I could only dreamily wish of wailing on a guitar in Portland, Oregon with the rest of them. Now the latest venture of the Camp is The Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp For Girls book. Chronicle Books is celebrating this rocking book by announcing the Girls Fender® Guitar ... Read More

Where do we go now?

BY Laurie in Music

I know it's not nice to make fun of old people, lord knows we're all gonna be there sooner than we like to admit, but I feel the need to call out Axl here. Corn rows? cmon. The bicycle shorts were bad enough in 1989,  but you are white. Stop this silliness. Oh, and apparently there is a partially leaked new Guns and Roses album floating around, with only the one original member who has not been kicked out yet, Axl Rose himself. Read all about it here on ... Read More
