Marnie Stern is rock personified. She writes the kind of music you can thrash around to (or ride your bike to and feel badass), and is just plain cool.
Before the release of her fourth album The Chronicles of Marmia back in March, Stern hit up the SXSW festival. Luckily, MTV’s Weird Vibes were there to film it, producing the short documentary ‘This Is Marnie Stern’.
In the documentary, Marnie and her cute doggie Fig charm the crowds, hang out ... Read More

During the first day of BUST’s three-day showcase at SXSW, we were graced with the beautiful sounds of dream-poppers Widowspeak at the Pussy Palace. The indie rockers’ Western-influenced sound was a perfect fit for Austin (duh), and Molly Hamilton’s soft-sung vocals created a chill, almost ethereal atmosphere. In case you missed our live stream of the kickass house show, watch Widowspeak perform a shoegaze-y ditty below.For more American ... Read More
THURSDAY - DAY 1 @ SXSW
It's 5AM and I'm running down the stairs of a Greenpoint, Brooklyn walk-up with the wild delusion that I'll get a cab to get me to Newark airport in time for my 6:30 flight. $80 and an hour and twenty-six minutes later I'm panting, out of breath, in the remnants of a line boarding my plane to Austin. There are leather jackets, guitar cases, vanity sunglasses, and black band t-shirts everywhere. The mass exodus of the stereotypical is ... 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

Feminist icon and punk legend Kathleen Hanna is one of my many heroes. Defiant activist, outspoken pro-choicer, amazing songwriter, skilled musician, and prolific zine author, my friends and all kind of wish we were her. Her ground-breaking riot grrrl band Bikini Kill changed punk forever but Hanna wasn’t going to stop there. After Bikini Kill broke up in 1997, she went on to start electronic-dance-punk band Le Tigre, which is now sadly on ... Read More

Rebecca Thomas’s debut feature Electrick Children is a crackling, captivating film that’s equal parts allegory and acid trip. At the center of the story is Rachel (Julia Garner), an inquisitive and rebellious teenager living in the mid-nineties. Julia has been raised by a fundamentalist Mormon family, living on a compound in Utah. On the occasion of her fifteenth birthday, Rachel is asked by her father and church leader (Billy Zane) to begin recording ... Read More
