Five Points Band Times is hard. Fun is not. If you're in NYC Monday night, pack up your sins and unburden yourself at 'Gutless and Guilty' , a night of music and comedy happening at Santos Party House! The night will include: Bread and Puppet Theater's production of 'Dirt Cheap Opera', a bawdy, 45 minute adaptation of the famous Brecht/Weill 'Three Penny Opera' - a story of the gangster Mac the Knife and his brand new wife Polly newly mixed and freshly rebaked. Then music by: Lily and...

A while back you may remember Tara and I gushing about the Akron/Family show we stumbled upon at SXSW. Since then, we've developed a full blown love affair with this band which is why we were SO excited to hear that these boys are gearing up for a new record, (coming out on Dead Oceans) and 2009 tour! The band will be playing a short run of December dates, culminating with a New Year's Eve performance, (with Deer Tick!), for what promises to be an all...

As much as the Holidays can sometimes suck for grown ups (the rushing, the shopping, and the hassles) I really do love Christmas, and here are at least three excellent things I can recommend to get you thru any stress and strain you may be feeling. 1. A John Waters Christmas CD , including number one hits like Santa Claus is a Black Man , Merry Christmas Baby Jesus, and Fat Daddy. This cd gets heavy rotation in the BUST offices and has been a favorite...

The phrase 'Blonde Bombshell' conjures images of Hollywood legends Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield or Jean Harlow, but all-too-often history tends to overlook one of the great blonde starlets of our time: Liz Renay The original Queen of Re-Invention, Renay starred in over eighteen films, including John Water's controversial film 'Desperate Living'.

Some bands are worth the wait. Some shows leave you glowing, sweaty, tired, footsore, but with a stupid grin on your face that lasts for hours. Some shows remind you why you love rock'n'roll. Boss Hog's reunion was everything teenage me would've wanted, and everything that makes grownup, cynical me let down my defenses and bliss out on the music.
