Boss Hog, the punk rock spawn of Cristina Martinez and Jon Spencer will return for their first show in 8 years following a mini tour in Europe and performances at All Tomorrow's Parties.  Joining Boss Hog at the Bowery Ballroom on Dec. 17th is a full compliment of rhythm and grind, featuring the country punk moxie of Tennessee's Those Darlins , the titillating parade of burlesque goddesses Harvest Moon and Dirty Martini , and special guest DJ Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah...

I still don't know what hit me, even two days after experiencing all that is a Quintron and Miss Pussycat show. The New Orleans-based art rockers (which essentially consists of a one-man band and a Maraca-playing backup singer) played Santos Party House, the NYC venue owned by previous BUST Boy du Jour, Andrew W.K. He was the host with the most Monday night, and did his best to hawk the $4 Budweiser specials to a packed house. Here he is, looking snazzy in what a...

While waiting in line for the brain surgeons at the Highline Ballroom in NYC last night to figure out the guest list for the Pretenders show, a guy in front of me turned and said 'Well, maybe you can get into Madison Square Garden instead?' I asked him 'For what? He replied 'Madonna's there tonight, Isn't that ironic?' I didn't get the irony. Anyway, as he was watching all the color drain from my face I said 'No thank you. Madonna's never...
