Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
1 John OatesThe key to really wearing a mustache---rather than having it wear you---is confidence. Now clean-shaven, Oates wore his with the kind of bravado that Scotsmen bring to shortsless kilt-wearing: a caveman gleam in the eye, an open shirt and a fulsome explosion of bristles.

3 Frank ZappaThis all-over-the-map composer is the Salvador Dal of the entertainment world, in music and mustache.

5 Chuck BerryRock & roller Berry offers the 'stache equivalent of overplucked eyebrows---taking from top and bottom until near nothing remains.
6 Ringo StarrWhat could top the drum fills on "Strawberry Fields Forever"? The fact that Ringo's eyes slope downward at the same angle as his mustache.

8 Prince Mustachioed, mulleted, wearing a shiny purple coat and still sexy. Mr. Prince, we salute you!
9 JD SamsonBoldness is rewarded again, in Le Tigre/MEN lady Samson. If face fuzz could talk: "Yes it is, and yes I am."
10 Donald FagenSo thin! So well groomed! As if a single dreadlock has been glued to the Steely Dan singer's upper lip.
DJ Mix: Layo & Bushwacka!
The U.K. electronic-house superstars give us a mix.
That exclamation point isn't there to convey our excitement—it's an official part of DJ-producer Matthew Benjamin's nom de musique—but we are extremely amped about the Basic NYC--KGB gig that Benjamin and partner Layo Paskin will be playing on Saturday, November 20. The gig itself should be killer, with the U.K. duo spinning revved-up house rhythms alongside hosts Sleepy & Boo in Sullivan Room, and Carl Craig (with no less than Amp Fiddler on live keys) doling out his jazz-tech beats in the upstairs Sullivan Hall. But what makes this event really special is the venue's intimacy; these guys, whose path to superstardom wasn't hurt by the fact that Layo co-owned one of London's premier clubs, the End (may it rest in peace), usually ply their trade in niteries many times larger than Sullivan Room. It's as close to a don't-miss party as we get in NYC—and here's a deep-yet-jacking Layo & Bushwacka! mix to get you ready.
