Elisabeth Wilson went to yet another awesome show in Portland. Here's her take on Zola Jesus at Holocene on July 25th.
I went to see Zola Jesus last Sunday night (despite being in the final throws of a fever) just to see what all the cool kids were talking about. Twenty-one year old Nika Roza Danilova trained as an opera singer before morphing into her present form as noise/electronic/goth songwriter and chanteuse. On Sunday night, she performed with one ...

Lizzy Caplan, who played a vampire blood junkie in True Blood last season and is a co-star of the hilarious Party Down, has signed on to produce a TV adaptation of Julie Klausner's memoir "I Don't Care About Your Band" on HBO. Klausner, Salon's Lady Business columnist, has compared her memoir and the TV show to Sex and the City without Carrie's implausible lifestyle of a freelancer with her own apartment and $40 thou worth of shoes. The show sounds like it will ... Read More

I cracked up when I saw this link to a spread in GQ where some of our favorite movie star dudes let it all hang out.Photographed by pal and BUST contributor, Danielle Levitt, we have Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, and Chris Evans lettin' it blow in the breeze in their photo shoot promoting the Scott Pilgrim movie.

It could be said that the music of Daniel Johnston is especially sad, because it has such a peppy little sound to it. While getting ready this morning, I chose Johnston's new early recordings compilation, The Story of An Artist (Munster Records), as my background music and found my spirits quickly lifted by his eccentric piano playing and child like way of singing. Knowing the back story of Johnston, and how he has suffered from bipolar disorder nearly his whole ... Read More

Kristen Schaal has to be one of the cutest, funniest women in comedy today and if you haven't seen her interview on the Letterman Show, watch it now.

Her adorable voice, Pee-Wee Herman-like entrance and earnest attitude ... Read More

Are you missing the crazy, monotone shenanigans of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie in “Flight of the Conchords” as much as I am? Just two seasons of the quirky TV show was not enough! The duo was featured as our coverdudes in the April/May 2008 Men We Love issue, and we’re still madly in love with them.
Assuming you BUSTy ladies out there are just as obsessed as we are and happen to be in New York for the weekend (or whenever, ... Read More

The only problem (if I HAD to pick one) with being Music Editor for a magazine like Bust, is that there's just not enough time in any given day to write about all the awesome music that gets sent to us for review.

Icelandic singer and musician Olöf Arnalds floats into our musical ... Read More

Is your birth control making you smell "less attractive" to prospective males? That's the question scientists at Duke University are researching in a fairly new study conducted with lemurs as test subjects. In the study, female lemurs were injected with the popular birth control, Depo-Provera, also known as the shot. The female lemurs then allegedly sent out a "different scent molecule" than the control group. Males seemed to shun the injected females, leaving ... Read More
