Here in NYC, we have been getting some terrible rainy weather. It has been gray, bleak and miserable. The May flowers are wilting and rotting in the May showers, and I haven't even gotten a chance to rock my new booty shorts...Yesterday, I got a day off from the super-market I work at when I'm not interning for BUST. (Oh! The glamourous life of a cashier! What up product codes? How ya doing coupons?) When I found this out, I envisioned myself being productive, ... Read More

The Lower East Side and Alphabet city were relentless war zones. ... Read More

As blue strobe lights flashed and the loud speakers played thrash music from an anonymous metal band, The Mountain Goats stepped onto the stage for their second of three sold out shows at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. For the uninitiated, this incongruous introduction might prove alarming, but veteran fans will know that the band have made a tradition of introducing themselves in this ostentatious way. This hyperliterate indie rock band—which ... Read More

These are the days of our lives...

Before I went to the Wild Flag show at NYC's Radio City Musical Hall Wednesday night, I checked out the band's Facebook page. Because I "like" them. Not because I enjoy staring at pics of Carrie Brownstein every day or anything.

Wild Flag's line-up is nothing short of astounding. Carrie Brownstein ... Read More
