BUST wants you to know about Light AsylumAccording to their myspace, Shannon Funchess and Bruno Coviello are Williamsburg Brooklyn's answer to the reemergence of new romantics. Like their predecessors, they have a penchant for walking on the dark side while carrying the torch to new dawns of rapturous, post-punk, new wave and industrial sounds.
In other words: really SWEET dance music. And a really good reason to come out to the BUST party at the ... Read More

Yesterday was pretty much amazing. Before even arriving in Austin for SXSW, I knew that I was going to be seeing Hole play at the Spin Magazine party being held at Stubb's BBQ. The organizers of the event sent laminate passes via Fedex, which was fancy and exciting enough, but then when I read "complimentary beverages provided by ..." my excitement level went through the top of my head. So even though excitement was for sure present, there was a certain amount of, ... Read More

Flicks about girl bands often follow the same trajectory: rebellious young women wanna skip town on the high heels of their rock ‘n’ roll dreams, but men tell them it’s impossible because “girls can’t rock.” Through a series of montages, the band ultimately gets good enough to prove they deserve a chance.
