Do you know what happened yesterday? The Madonna: Celebration DVD dropped. Okay, so if you're not as big of a Madonna fan as I am, you probably weren't looking forward to this event as much as I was. I had it marked on my calendar: buy Madonna DVD! I didn't even wait until after work was over -- I bought it on my lunch hour and proudly displayed it to my fellow interns upon my return. They were, um, not quite as interested. But if you are a Madonna ... Read More
The Swedish band Fever Ray made their US debut at Webster Hall last night, and Karin Dreijer and company did not disappoint. The set was very dark, the performers hidden mostly by smoke machine and shadow, while lasers beamed across the room and audience, and a few table lamps pulsed a dim orange glow on stage. From where I was standing (it was hard to see anything) it looked like Karin was wearing what I can only describe as a small African hut that she was ... Read More

Or read our interview with the lady behind the mask in our Aug/September issue. + + + + + + ... Read More

Hello Gorgeous!

BY intern Amber in General |

At 6 years old I was introduced to Funny Girl, a wonderful musical about Fanny Brice featuring Barbra Streisand. Watching this dazzling woman with perfect comedic timing and a voice that could melt your heart like buttah, I was immediately hooked! Barbra Streisand is a true pioneer for women. Shocked? Well think about it; Barbra Streisand is the #1 best selling female recording artist in history and the only woman to make the Top 10 all time best selling artists ... Read More

Clare Manchon lives in Brooklyn and fills her days with modern trappings just like the rest of us, but it doesn't take much of an investigation to uproot her desire to live in a 1950s black-and-white detective film come to life. As the main songwriter behind the band Clare and the Reasons, she admits that when not composing material for her own songs, she does enjoy a ditty or two from bands such as Grizzly Bear and friendly neighbor (he really does live nearby) ...

If you watched Mad Men a couple of weeks ago, you may have been wowed by Pete Campbell's surprising ability to cut the rug at his boss's twenties-themed garden party:Well, if you live in NYC and harbor a desire to go to a similar type of party, including Charleston dance lessons, vintage cocktails, live music, old 78 records played on an old time-y gramophone, and, zomg, a PIE BAKING CONTEST, then you're in luck, because this weekend sees hte return of the ...

You Better WORK!

Making the rounds at the BUST office this morning is this video by the Get 'Em Mamis, a kickass rap duo from Baltimore who deserve some space on your iPod. So stop everything and listen right now -- whatever you're doing can wait till after you've heard the Mamis. In case you've never heard of them before, here's a little tidbit they proudly display on their MySpace page: last year Rolling Stone ranked their song 'Cold Summer' higher than Lil ... Read More

ON, IT, AT?

BY Web Intern in General |

If you're a huge fan of Tegan and Sara like myself, you're most likely patiently awaiting their new record (only have until Oct. 27!) and the lengthy tour that is sure to follow. In the meantime, you can speculate how cute their new trio of books, On, It, At, is going to be and put aside money for the pre-sale order (which begins Sept. 28).The trio of books chronicles different time periods over the course of a year in the lives of two of my favorite ladies. ...

(Interview by Sara Graham, photo by Michael Lavine) Jack White is the king of founding hip-as-shit bands. First he created the White Stripes, then the Raconteurs, and now his latest project, the balls-out, bare-boned group the Dead Weather, is spot-on rock gold. The band features Alison Mosshart (of the Kills) sharing vocal duties with White, and Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (the Raconteurs) round out the lineup. Their dirty-blues, ... Read More
