A few months ago, a mysterious email was sent out from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs  inviting fans to a free and hush-hush performance at the Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn. There were two performances, each with a capacity of just 100 people and the second show being exclusive to just the ladies-- no vagina, no show. That night, they came, they passed out Zorro masks, and they fucken rocked. Like me, you have no excuse to not have been there. But lucky for us, both ... Read More

Art Girl Crush

BY Lisa in General |

 I love food. And I love San Francisco (my former home). So when I saw artist Liz Hickok’s “San Francisco in Jell-O” series I totally fell in love. The series includes photos and videos of San Francisco landscapes that she’s cast in Jell-O. In Jell-O!! First she makes scale models of landscapes like the row of Painted Ladies (aka The Full House houses) or the Transamerica building out of balsa wood and foam. She uses these to make molds ...

Hot Wheels

BY debbie in General |

I want a pink car, dammit!Last year, Nisssa painted one of their compact model cars pink, then toured it around the UK as part of a breast cancer fundraising event. NOt surprisingly, folks begged Nissan to produce the car in pink for reals -- and they did. The 100 units sold out quickly, so they came back with another 150. STateside we never even had a chance at this pink panther, since this cutie car, the Nissan Micra, isnt' even for sale here. It's not the first ... Read More

Real Talk

BY Callie in General |

Both The Duke Spirit and Henry Rollins have been in BUST before and our heart for them will go on. I got to hang with these guys last time they were in the states on tour and they were an absolute pleasure. I kind of got myself a little crush on Luke. He is the one in the black peacoat. Pretty hot, huh.  If you haven’t heard their guest song “Mayday” on UNKLE’S debut album War Stories you are totally missing out. Check out the live ... Read More

All the Labies of the World

BY debbie in General |

We know we're getting all creepy trekkie-obsessed with the dudes from Flight of the Conchords, but we can't stop ourselves. In last week's episode, they sang a love song to all the ladies of the world (from Namibian to amphibian; erudite to hermaphrodite). Now it looks like the ladies are singing back!First up, the soulful "Jemaine", from a future Mrs. Clement:  Next, "Bret. will you be my Ukelele lover?" from a Mrs. McKenzie wannabe: So ... Read More

Big Whoop!

BY Callie in General |

I have never really been into The View even though my BFFE can’t get enough of it. I just thought it was a 30 plus club thing for some reason. It looks like my relationship with the view is about to change. I have always loved Whoopi! I mean Jumpin’ Jack Flash, come on. Looks like I may have to start keeping up with the ladies now. While poking around for some footage of Whoopi’s guest appearances on the view (you can catch some clips here) I ... Read More

Scare Band

BY Dawn in Music Stuff |

I've lost my marbles for Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears!!! This past weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of getting shot with a beautiful dose of cinematic glam rock when I was introduced to the sound of Brooklyn based band, Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears. Led by Brian Scary, the band's sound is reminiscent of Queen, The Beatles and Bowie, and also super theatrical like the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Each member was dressed like a character from an old ... Read More

 A Haiku about last nights local news:Manhattan Mini StorageI want you to hold my thingsPro-choice is what’s upThis billboard makes me want to buy more stuff, or move into an even smaller space, just so I can support the company. Also, check out their website. They have amazing partners doing amazing things like Publicolor; which takes at-risk kids off the streets and gets them into after-school art programs that focus on beautifying public space. Well ...

Rasputina

BY Laurie in Music Stuff |

I've always loved Melora and her cello band Rasputina, but this latest cd Oh Perilous World is probably one of her best. Here she's teamed up with that other 1800's lovin' gal -the one and only Dame Darcy for the video for 1816, The Year Without a Summer. You can also check out the very fine tune Cage in a Cave on our Media Taster to the left. Enjoy the old timey splendour. ... Read More
