We’ve just cleared the first week of December, and I’m sure that for some, holiday exhaustion is already rearing its ghastly, tinsel-encrusted, eggnog-stained head. If you’ve already had your fill of the overplayed holiday pop standards that dominate the airwaves this time of year, fear not. There is hope on the horizon.   Sufjan Stevens, everyone’s favorite musical Michigander (or mine, at least), has just released a new ... Read More
Think about all the great musicians, artists, chefs, breweries, and independent vendors that the borough of Brooklyn has to offer, and then imagine them in one place, eating and drinking and shopping and dancing all night. What you just imagined is real, and it might be the coolest thing to happen in a Williamsburg warehouse in a long time. The Brooklyn Night Bazaar celebrates Brooklyn's creative spirit on Friday and Saturday nights from November 23 - December 22, ... Read More
We're obsessed with this jam here at BUST HQ. Thrifting! Highly danceable beats! Footed onesies! Children! Fur rippling through the air in epic slow-mo! What's not to love? It already has 25 million hits on Youtube! How did we not know about this until last week? What is wrong with us? Now we need to listen to it every day just to make up for lost time! This IS fucking ... Read More
Last Friday, I met singer/songwriter/maestro Erin Barra before she played the Paperbox Theatre in Brooklyn. I get really excited about strong, female musicians. But as pumped as I was to meet her, I didn’t expect to have her songs running through my head for the entire rest of the weekend. She tells me during our interview that she’s constantly hearing “you don’t look the way you sound.” With her shock of red hair and sharp, green ... Read More
If anyone reading this was planning to wear a bulky, reindeer-faced Christmas sweater to Ingrid Michaelson’s holiday celebration tonight, think again. According to the native New Yorker, dropping to the floor isn’t too uncommon in the heat of the moment at her performances. When I ask if festive attire by way of ugly sweaters is encouraged at her annual Holiday Hop, she laughingly tells me, “There seems to be a trend at my shows of women ... Read More
This past summer, Fleetwood Mac warmed our collective heart cockles when they announced that they’d be reuniting for a smattering of shows in 2013. The promise of a few shows was enough to set Fleetwood Mac fans a-tweaking, but the reality has turned out to be even sweeter. The band will tour a full 34 cities this go-around, beginning April 4th in Columbus, Ohio.    It’s only been three years since the band last hit the road, but ... Read More

  Sosan Firooz, the first Afghani female rapper, has recently been hit with a spate of menacing text messages and phone calls demanding that she stop performing.  “If your daughter appears on TV again,” one caller said to her mother, “we will cut off your head.” This seems nuts—but considering recent news from her home country, it doesn’t seem impossible. Sosan, 23, performs with her hair uncovered in front of both ... Read More
Four NYC indie rock darlings are coming together for Hurricane Sandy relief! A benefit concert on December 14th at Terminal 5 will donate all proceeds to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.  Sleigh Bells, a duo from Brooklyn, will be blowing out our eardrums with their heavy brand of noise pop.  They’ve now got two albums out and are working on a third with a possible release date in 2013.  With the release of their fourth ...
