How many times have you passed by a homeless person, and not noticed them? Living in N.Y.C. I would venture to guess that number would be very, very high. It's not often that we stop to talk to, or even look at the homeless. It's something we'd simply rather not acknowledge. Maybe because its scary to think that anyone could be sitting there, a loved one, or possibly ourselves? Well the folks over at the New York Rescue Mission have cleverly created an incredibly ...

A bunch of BUST editors and friends were asked to judge Jonathan Toubin’s Soul Clap and Dance-Off a few weekends ago, and we had SOOOOO much fun! Above is a pic of the winner, Elizabeth Arnold (aka #66) who's moves were undeniable. The second runner up was also fantastic, but we didn't catch his name because, frankly, judging is hard work and you need to drink the entire time, so by 2 am we were pretty wasted. Sorry #100!

At the NY premiere of Beth B's latest documentary, EXPOSED–which pulls back the curtain on the NYC Burlesque scene–there was a touching moment during the Q+A that followed the screening: A young audience member revealed that she had grown up in a very closed-minded family, and wept as she thanked the performers for their bravery.
This was just one of the many moments that made me realize that this special movie--which discusses sexuality, letting ... Read More

We recently heard from some Australian BUSTies who are in dire need of picking up the latest issue of BUST Magazine, so we asked our distributor for a list of stores in the country that carry BUST.
Of course you can subscribe, or for immediate satisfaction, you can buy the magazine digitally here. Easy as that!
Happy Reading, with love from BUST! xo

It was a sad and shocking Sunday when the word got out that Lou Reed had passed away. There’s no denying the profound influence that his songs and persona had on hundreds of thousands of bands, artists and freaks who wanted to move to New York City, soak up any cool that was left, do drugs, and make the scene. The Velvet Underground will always be known as the band with the least amount of commercial success who inspired the most malcontents to pick up ... Read More

Goldfrapp's latest, Tales of Us, (out tomorrow on Mute) is their sixth LP, and is somewhat a return to form for the British duo. Its slow, luxurious feel has more in common with the velvety soundscapes of Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, which is great news for those of us who didn’t love the ’80s aerobics class vibes of 2010’s Head First. Nine of the 10 songs assembled here are named for a person, with each one telling its own suspenseful story. ... Read More
