Scout Willis

You may have heard by now that Scout LaRue Willis (daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore) has been protesting against Instagram's nudity policy by walking (and buying flowers) around NYC topless and tweeting pictures of herself doing so with the #FreeTheNipple hashtag. Via NY Daily News:

"Legal in NYC but not on Instagram," Willis tweeted about her snaps. She captioned another: "What @Instagram won't let you see #FreeTheNipple"

Her protest came after the social media platform removed one of her photos for violating its Community Guidelines.

The photo that got deleted was one of a sweatshirt that depicted two topless women, nipples clearly visible.

"My comfort with my body should not be dictated by how others perceive me," Willis tweeted. "However, I don't wish to force this view on anyone. If you don't like what you see, simply unfollow me."

"This is about helping women feel empowered to make personal choices about their bodies not dictated by what society says is decent," she says.

You may remember that in addition to having famous parents, Scout is also a frequent Nicolas Jaar/Darkside collaborator. Nico's pal Valentin Stip, who put out his debut LP, Sigh, on Jaar's Other People label earier this year, will next play NYC on June 21 at Cameo with Justin Miller and Evan Michael. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Bruce and Demi's other daughter Tallulah (who some also call rebellious for her tattoo of a dog's head) is also involved in music. You may recall she teamed up with Odd Future's Tyler the Creator and Syd tha Kyd for Tyler's "Tamale" and is/was dating Lucas of Odd Future.

Syd tha Kyd also recently scheduled a NYC show happening June 6 at Baby's All RIght with White Sea, Morgan Kibby's (of M83) band who just played Sasquatch. Tickets for the Baby's show are on sale now.

Stream some Valentin Stip, Syd tha Kyd and White Sea below...

Sasquatch Festival 2014 - Day 1

Playing essentially the same set they've begun taking across America, the version with "Hey Ya!" in the middle instead of left for desert, there were no hints of the awkwardness some saw in the hip-hop duo's Coachella performance in April: just urgency. While both men are no doubt happy to collect their headlining cheddar, on Saturday night, their performance was about legacy. They appeared within a cube with black-and-white projections of the American flag, evoking their "Stankonia" cover art, and their banter guided the crowd between songs as the set pivoted from hits to deep cuts, remembering the days they rehearsed rap verses around the kitchen table and crowing over OutKast's eternal coolness before "So Fresh, So Clean."

Santigold @ Bowery Ballroom, 12/10/2012 (more by David Andrako)
Santigold

As you may have seen last night, HBO's Girls won big at the Golden Globes, grabbing both Best Comedy series and Best Actress for creator/star Lena Dunham. At the same time Dunham was giving her acceptance speech, Season 2 of Girls (now featuring Donald Glover as Hannah's new boyfriend) was making its debut on the pay cable channel.

The soundtrack to Girls just came out last week and one of the songs exclusive to it is Santigold's "Girls." We've got the premiere of its video right here in this post. Shot here in NYC the cool little clip features girls from all walks of life (and all ages) lip-synching to the track and you can watch it below. The Girls soundtrack also features Sleigh Bells, Fleet Foxes, Robyn, Belle & Sebastian and more.

Santigold played Bowery Ballroom back in December and her only upcoming live date is at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on February 9. Video and Girls OST artwork and tracklist below...

Active Child @ Emo's Inside
Active Child

"With immaculate vocals that are almost as enchanting as a Gregorian chant, ex-choir boy Pat Grossi, better known as Active Child, has put together an album that is enthralled in a romantic mystery of love. Active Child was once part of the Philadelphia Boys Choir as a youngster and is also fluent in playing the harp. Even though he is being compared to artists like James Blake and Bon Iver his musical background has given him the space to create music that is just as intriguing to the ear." [Karmaloop]
Active Child is out on tour now, working their way towards NYC for a September 10th show at Bowery Ballroom with Com Truise and the UK's Young Athletes League. Want to go? We have a pair of tickets to give away. Contest details with more tour dates, a remix of Hanging On by White Sea, and pictures from Active Child's show on 9/2 at Emo's in Austin, below...
