With the event of more female-centric TV programs like Broad City and Girls, more often than usual we find ourselves yelling passionately at the screen, "Yes! Yes! That's exactly how it is!" That's the power of representation, and the reason it matters. Individuals who never feel kinship with what they see in media can wind up with a nasty sense of isolation. Seeing people with whom I can identify represented on TV makes me feel more comfortable with myself in ... Read More

Some days, a lady just wants to see a fine man strip. You’d think this would be easy but there are so many perils in the way. Male strippers, for some reason, often feel the need to oil themselves up, grow their hair long and stringy and perform in such a way that you feel you need to go home and take a shower and not in the good way.
Enter the New York Boylesque Festival on April 26th and 27th. A troupe of talented and titillating males will be ... Read More

It’s a sweltering summer day in New York City, pushing 100 degrees, when Paloma Faith and I decide to take a walk. Luckily, the 27-year-old British singer is, in her own way, dressed for it: she’s wearing a gorgeous two-piece sunsuit that’s straight out of the 1960s. She’s further armed with cat-eye sunglasses, a sky-high beehive, and her unique blend of smarts, sweetness, and grit. It’s her idea to do our interview out on the street. ... Read More

Last Thursday the 12th, at the strike of 6:00, I scooted out of the BUST office and excitedly headed straight to Pier 84 for the first free show of the Hudson River Rocks summer concert series, featuring Dan Deacon and John Maus. The show opened with Baltimore grunge-rock group, Roomrunner, who had a few technical issues and consequential commentary (“all of our shit is broken”), which ended up interrupting the potential loud/fast/hard energy the band ...

This past December, I saw Prince for the first time at Madison Square Garden. For those of us used to seeing indie rock shows in a half-filled dive bar, there is certainly something eerily futuristic/Matrix-y about a concert in a vast, jam-packed arena complete with video screens, nausea-inducing bleachers, 20,000 seats, and nine dollar domestic beers. A smallish sized city of people had assembled and paid at least ninety dollars to see the man- just one of many ... Read More
