It’s not often that at a concert, the artist encourages you to take photos and film the performance, but that’s exactly what David Byrne did at his recent show in Brooklyn.
Though the Talking Heads frontman, who teamed up with St. Vincent for his latest release, Love This Giant, announced right before going on stage that he didn’t mind people using their phones to take a picture or two, he wasn’t interested in seeing any iPads waving ... Read More
The chorus kids at Staten Island’s P.S.22, who gained fame a few years ago with their spot-on renditions of popular songs, are at it again. This time they wow the indie music scene with their version of "It Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" off Tame Impala’s new record, Lonerism.
Who doesn’t love a chorus group composed of adorable and insanely talented kids? The cover sounds damn good--I’d even say as good as the original. ... Read More

With the new James Bond film, Skyfall, opening in theatres on November 9th, it’s time for a new jam to accompany it. As one of the most successful artists to come out of the UK, Adele was the obvious choice to sing the signature theme song for this installment of the franchise. And of course, her classic lady-crooner sound works perfectly with the classy feel of the Bond films. So why haven’t I melted into a pool of my own tears, ... Read More

Tonight, I will be doing one of three things: high-fiving a million angels, working on my night cheese, or crying out of my mouth. I might even do them all at the same time. Why? Because tonight, the first episode of the final season of 30 Rock airs. While I'm looking forward to the new season, I'm devastated that it's over. In times of great strife like these, I feel that I must turn to music and/or dairy products for consolation. Luckily, BUST covergirl Tina Fey ... Read More

Three members of Pussy Riot who were arrested (Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Ekaterina Samucevic) currently remain in jail as their appeal hearing has been postponed to October 10. This court hearing may be the last chance for the musicians to be set free; alternate option would be sending the women to remote penal detention centers where they fear for their safety.
As this important date for the band approaches, J.D. Samson and Michael ... Read More

Azealia Banks is back with another video that’s bound to catch the attention of all those (like me) who had a stint of obsession with her video “212”, which went viral after its YouTube release a year ago. Her latest single “Luxury,” off her mixtape Fantasea, however, is a bit different than the others. Unlike her other previously released tracks like “212” and“L8R” this newest single lacks that fast, dirty rap that Banks has already ... Read More

To celebrate the release of Lavender Diamond's new record Incorruptible Heart, check out BUST's interview with Becky Stark, the lady behind the music!By Hilary Hughes
When I meet up with Becky Stark (aka Lavender Diamond) at the Trails Café in Los Angeles' Griffith Park, it's a matter of minutes before she's effusing her thoughts on everything from the Mayans to the redefinition of femininity to "space ballet." After we pick up coffee and score a spot at a ... Read More
Got the city blues? Escape them tonight with a new comedy and variety show, Company Picnic, and you won't even have to leave the island. Although the lineup looks a little sausage fest-y, it's more of an eclectic buffet of some of the best comedy in the city, and the best dish is musical. Comedian Jessica Delfino is a guitar-playing, hilarious-joke-telling, do-it-all performer, as well as a critically acclaimed and award-winning musician ... Read More
