All you need is LOVE

BY Laurie in Music Stuff

One of my favorite lady artists is Becky Stark. The songs she makes with her band Lavender Diamond are not only beautiful, but the message is always positive and full of love. looks like the band has made a secret movie to accompany their Matador records  release Imagine our Love. If you are in LA, you are very lucky because they are having what promises to be a wonderful evening of performances on Tues. May 27th  called Psychedelic Healing Visions: A ... Read More

Quien Es Mas Amy?

BY debbie in Music Stuff

In the battle to be the next Amy Winehouse two contestants have emerged as frontrunners.  In this corner, I give you Duffy: And in this corner, we have Adele:    Personally, I think Adele's kind of a snoozefest and Duffy's got the better chance at the title, but what do you ... Read More

BK vs. BC

BY Laurie in Music Stuff

I love the Black Keys, their latest record Attack and Release (Nonesuch) is amazing, here is the video for Your Touch. I think one of the reasons I love them so much is that singer Dan Auerbach sounds exactly like Paul Rodgers from the 70's band Bad Company. Below is a BC clip from 1975, check out the crop top and white bells, and those might just be clogs on his feet. YES!!  ... Read More

American Idol

BY Laurie in Music Stuff

I'm a little embarrassed to admit to watching American Idol, but it was really great having Dolly on the show tonight. Of course she is too nice to "judge anyone"-she is just so sweet you cant help but love her! And for once the kids did pretty good with their versions of her songs. Unfortunately my favorite "Coat of Many Colors" which always gets me a little verklempt, was sung by my least favorite, Kristy lee,  and it did not wow. ... Read More
Has it been nearly a week since BUST's day party at SXSW?  It was hot, hot, hot...  everything from the bands, to the bad asses struttin’ their stuff, to the amazing Austin, Texas weather! It goes without saying that I was going to party it up, rock out to amazing music, and meet cool people from around the globe. We were all there to showcase, promote and fiercely work it! I managed to do all of this while having an incredibly fun time!! I'm still ... Read More

SXSW de Dawn

BY Dawn in Music Stuff

SXSW ended days ago and yet I think some of us are still recovering. It was a full week of bands, parties, swag, tacos and margaritas. The first night in we checked out the K Records showcase. The Blow was unsurprisingly and indescribably adorable. This was my 6th time seeing her live, and I don't know how she does it, but she manages to outdo herself every time.photo by irockirollOn Thursday while running errands around Austin, Adam purchased a sweet set of ...

SXSW and me!

BY Tara in Music Stuff

sxsw was amazing! i needed a full day to bounce back from it, but amazing none the less. i saw some really great stuff and actually, i can say without any kind of bias at all that the BUST party was among the best. It was really, really awesome. So many nice people came out and umm, it would be a total oversight to not mention the effin outstanding mojito's. Grand Ole Party (DH Records), Yacht (Marriage & States Rights Records), Mika Miko (Kill Rock Stars) and ... Read More
