Happy Saturday!! On the show today we could not be more excited about the brand new Moonface album. It's just Spencer Krug and a piano, and honestly, that sounds like heaven. Speaking of heaven, don't forget to check out BTR's Pinterest and tumblr pages. We have so many fun things on there you won't want to miss out on. And I mean, while we're talking about great things, we've also got new music from Cass McCombs and Maria Taylor, and stay tuned for a fun story about her. And, as always, don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter!

It's "Orange Is the New Black" Week here on BTR, and I have a really unique, engaging topic and guest on the show for you today. There is a growing trend amongst international women's prisons to host annual beauty pageants; Russian-born, U.S.-based filmmaker Irina Vodar was behind a 2007 documentary titled Miss Gulag that looks at just such a pageant, held by inmates at a Siberian prison camp. The incarcerated women design and construct three different costumes for three phases of competition, each with the hope of winning the crown title. On today's show, you'll hear Irina talk about the women in Miss Gulag, why she felt compelled to tell their stories, the positive impact of the beauty pageant on their lives and transformations, her take on Russian fashion culture, and her latest documentary, "The Cycle," a deeply personal exploration of a socially taboo topic. Plus, a playlist full of great new folk and punk from artists like Tica Douglas, Neko Case, Summer Cannibals, and more. So suit up and tune in! It's time to fall in line for fashion with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
Check it out, my friends, it's a brand new episode of The Rock Show, only on BTR. Do we got Rock? Oh yes, we've got Rock.

DJ Drew's Sunday Show only on BTR
It's Assistant Week on BTR! Madalyn shares one of her worst assistant horror stories, and then spends the rest of the show playing some seriously upbeat pop rock to make up for the horrors. Plus, we've got brand new music from Philadelphia's own Man Man on the show, always an exciting event! And don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter!
Calling all aspiring designers!! You guys are gonna be SO excited by this week's show. What if I told you that there was a new company who would essentially act as your virtual assistant, helping you with every step of design production? A square one for independent designers? Well, I am happy to say that this ingenious company does, in fact, exist, in the form of The Ignited. The Ignited is a web-based design service, helping independent designers through each part of the production process, from sourcing to sample making to manufacturing. Once a garment is made, The Ignited offers designers a brilliant Kickstarter-like model to raise the necessary backing for a specific garment to go into production. On today's show, I'm joined by The Ignited Design Director Ellena Doe, who will talk about the development of this new fashion business model, their step-by-step production process, the logistical solutions the team has found that make this web-based alternative a smooth process, and more. Plus, a great mix of music with brand new Neko Case, more of the gorgeous new Volcano Choir album, and, on the heels of a rock- & punk-heavy fashion week, a set dedicated to garage punk. Fall is the season for new beginnings, so get back in the design game with Sew & Tell on BTR!
Gimme Rock Shooooooow! (R-O-C-C-K!) I want Rock Shooooooow! (Um, did I happen to say?)
