    It's our birthday and we want to celebrate! For over 25 years, BUST has been releasing content that pushes feminism, equality, and inclusion forward. We take pride in the number of influential, inspiring, and hard-working feminists we have had the chance to collaborate with over the years. In order to honor the hard work and love that has gone into BUST with the combined help of staff, contributors, and of course our subscribers, we are throwing a party—and you are all invited! Join us Tuesday, August 28th at the iconic House of Yes (2 Wyckoff Ave, Brooklyn, NY) for a party you won't want to miss. A portion of all ticket sales donated to the reproductive rights organization NNAF National Network of Abortion Funds.

    Erykah Badu (aka DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown, and former BUST cover star) will be playing a special DJ set at our anniversary party! Badu is a Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and producer whose debut album, Baduizm (1997) was certified triple platinum. Her music has also been distinguished by the BET Awards, NAACP Image Awards, and MTV Video Music Awards.

    Miss Eaves

    This Brooklyn-based rapper first stole our hearts with her body-positive anthem “Thunder Thighs,” and we were honored to premiere her music video for “Paper Mache (Single AF)” in January. Her other iconic song titles have included “Fuccboi Salute” and “Bush for the Push,” and we’re so excited she’ll be bringing her girl power to BUST’s stage.


    Described by NPR as “glam-grunge,” Brooklyn-based Sharkmuffin is known for fierce femme angst and raw, explosive sounds. Their music has been featured on Billboard, Noisey, NYLON, and, of course, BUST. Check out the band’s most recent singles, “Liz Taylor” and “Your Stupid Life” on Spotify, and catch them at our event on August 28.

    Brooklyn’s DJ Dirtyfinger, who’s previously joined us at several of our annual Craftaculars, will be bringing the party to the House of Yes! Check out some of his mixes on Soundcloud, or right here:

    We’ve featured The Resistance Revival Chorus a couple times in BUST, and we’re honored that this group of musical activists will be joining us to celebrate! The collective, which boasts over 60 women, have performed everywhere from on the subway to at the Grammys with Kesha.

    Kembra Pfahler With The Girls of Karen Black

    Artist Kembra Pfahler will be performing with some of the members of her glam punk band, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black. Pfahler’s done it all: though she’s known for her music and filmmaking, she’s also an accomplished, iconic performance artist who’s participated in political pieces including Sewing Circle (1992) and Womanizer (2007).
