Lavigne Sued Over "Girlfriend": Sixties power-pop band the Rubinoos sues Avril Lavigne, claiming her cheerleader-rock song "Girlfriend" sounds like their 1978 track "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend." Curiously, neither Toni Basil nor the Ramones, both of whom the song gloriously does rip off, are party to the suit.
Strolling through Union Square recently, Amy Larocca ran into writer and Dead Head Deana Bianco. In lieu of seeing her favorite band play, Bianco listens to them daily. "There's no more Dead shows, there's no more Phish shows, but it's all cool 'cause it's in the soul," she says. Sporting a vintage dress from the seventies, purple tights, and moccasins, Bianco retains her Colorado roots with the help of a tattoo. See what helps "keep the mountains" on her by watching this week's Video Look Book.
