Mish Way is the lead singer of Candian punk band, White Lung. She also writes for BUST, VICE, and is the Senior Women’s Correspondent for Noisey. She recently wrote an article about her experience in the underground music scene as a female “screamer.” We’re huge fans of Way over at BUST and are pretty stoked to hear her share insight as a musician and a writer. Here are some choice quotes from the article that we found ... Read More

I know y'all have seen the ridiculous ass-backwards looks from the red carpet gala at the Costume Institute Ball. I will NOT bore you with talk about how the glitterati got it all WRONG. Punk is not putting a thousand dollars of studs on a three thousand dollar Burburry jacket (I'm looking at you Sienna Miller). If you haven't seen the pix, check them out here and come back to me laterz.
The Metropolitan Museum is super important and does a great job preserving ... Read More

Upon listening to Go Find Your Own, you would never guess that garage-rockers Pony Time are a two-piece. The Seattle duo, made up of bassist/guitarist/vocalist Luke Beetham and drummer Stacey Peck, seem to magically fill out their '80s-inspired sound to perfection and find themselves in a league of their own with this record. At first you might be bobbing your head, thinking, "Yeah okay, I can dig this. I'm into grunge-y shit." You're loving their reverb-filled ... Read More

If you like punk, weed, and lo-fi rock 'n' roll then you'll probably love Colleen Green. If you don't like all of those things, you'll probably still love Colleen Green. It's hard not to like a musician who makes catchy 50's/60's doo-wop-ish garage rock completely by herself. She writes and records her own music, plays all of her instruments, books her own tours, hand-paints her t-shirts, draws comics, and makes zines, all while keeping a posi attitude about ... Read More

There are days when I feel like I have a good grasp on this whole adulthood situation and like I've put high school far behind me. But the moment I start to feel like a grown-ass lady, something comes up that uncovers all my repressed teen emotions: the pit of despair, mild identity crisis, and awkwardness that is being a young girl. Today, that something was Michael Lucid’s 1996 documentary, Dirty Girls.
Watching this 18-minute ... Read More
How freaking SWEET does this woman look? Tesnim Sayar, 21, is an art student in Denmark who started designing her own rebellious Muslim clothing and accessories after she bought a spiked bracelet when she was 12. Since then, she’s combined her religious garments with her goth-punk style and rocks handmade headscarf mohawks as well as plaid, piercings, and chains.Her creative take on traditional garb could be controversial to more orthodox Muslims, but ...

On Monday, Kathleen Hanna (of Bikini Kill, Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin) had a radio interview on “Q with Jian Ghomeshi,” where she spoke about the importance of public mistakes, the resurgence of the ‘90s, and why she is still pissed off twenty years later (“Does anybody remember that the Equal Rights Amendment never passed?”).
In the wake of the reissue of Bikini Kill’s entire catalog, Hanna speaks a lot about the band’s ... Read More

Shannon Shaw is the lead singer of amazing punk-pop-garage group Shannon and the Clams. This band has created a sound so original and I’ve been in love ever since I first laid ears on “Troublemaker.” Shannon’s wailing voice is remniscent of ‘60s girl groups The Shangri-Las and The Ronettes but with her own rougher spin on that sound. Guitarist Cody Blanchard is the other singer/songwriter of The Clams, and together the two produce ... Read More

Guitarist, songwriter, and singer Kate Eldridge is probably one of the hardest working musicians in the punk scene right now. Big Eyes started in Brooklyn, NY (although they’ve relocated to Seattle, WA), and has been releasing LPs, EPs, split 7 inches, and touring left and right since 2009. Kate shreds on guitar and writes some catchy-ass lyrics (see “Back From the Moon”). Big Eyes is like rock ’n’ roll but a little heavier. ... Read More

Desert Sharks are a four-piece surf (who woulda guessed?) punk band from Brooklyn. They’ve got a brand spankin’ new EP that hits the Internet shelves today via their Bandcamp. “Sister Cousins,” recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio, is an EP that keeps it short and not-so-sweet, but in a good way. They stay snarky with lines like “I’m gonna burn this neighborhood right to the ground/ So I never have to worry about ... Read More
