Wow, it’s almost been exactly a year since our nightmare (officially) started! What a beautifully trying 365 days it’s been! What a horrifying thought that we’ve potentially got three more to go LOL! If you can make it out to the 2018 Women’s March, I would highly recommend that – it’s v. therapeutic to see non-crazy-people in an empowering setting, plus making signs denouncing all of the awfulness is fun!

I wanted to go with a GIF theme reflecting female empowerment this weekend, which is why I was so pleasantly surprised to see that there is a Troop Beverly Hills quote-along tonight (Thursday) at Alamo Drafthouse – no one gives strength like the great Shelley Long as Phyllis Nefler, plus Yung Jenny Lewis as Hannah Nefler seals the bolstering deal!

BUT FIRST – let’s talk about some CR00SH things you might’ve missed on BYT this week:

  • First things first – as I mentioned earlier, Alamo Drafthouse is hosting a goddamn Troop Beverly Hills quote-along, and if that doesn’t sound like the definition of a dope-ass way to spend a Thursday night, I don’t know what does! As of this writing, very few $16 tickets remain, so grab ’em quick!
  • You can also catch a screening of Girls Trip at Videology for $24, the price of which includes bonus absinthe! (THINGS R GONNA GET WEIRD!)
  • In terms of tunes, most definitely catch NANCY FEAST (TEEN), Yucky Duster, Thick and Mallrat at Elsewhere for Tom Tom Magazine’s latest release party! Tickets are $12 each.
  • Meanwhile, you can head to Cafe Carlyle for a $70 Hamilton Leithauser performance…

  • …plus it’s Yams Day at the NY Expo Center ft. A$AP Mob & Friends! Tickets to that are $80-$100 a pop, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Always Strive And Prosper Foundation.
  • More into live podcasts? Head to the Bell House for Slate’s Hit Parade ft. special guest Ted Leo! Tickets are $30.
  • Trying to save money for brunch this weekend or whatever? Head to BRIC for a free Acid Dad performance as part of their B-Side series! Just RSVP to claim your spot.
  • Or if comedy’s more your jam, get to Union Hall for DURBIS: A Workout (slash comedy show) with Sam Taggart, Bowen Yang, Mary Houlihan, Nick Naney and MORE! Tickets are $10 each.
  • AND remember that Outsider Art Fair kicks off today and lasts through the weekend, so check it out if you find a spare moment for ye olde art!

  • Let’s kick things off with movies again tonight, this time at Videology! They’ll be screening Marie Antoinette for $40, the cost of which includes pastries and champagne // #FANCY but also I think it would have been funnier to opt for cake instead of pastries because, you know, let them eat cake or whatever.
  • (You should also stick around for a midnight Battle Royale drinking game, which is happening for $12!)
  • More into tunes? My top pick is a $16-$18 Yumi Zouma show at Baby’s All Right!
  • (Plus hunker down for Last Night NYC, which is a FREE indie dance party // just RSVP here.)

  • Speaking of dancing the pain away, hit up Trans-Pecos for The Winter of Our Discotheque ft. DJs Liz Pelly, Jeremy Larson and more! Tickets are $15-$25 each.
  • And just for good measure, Saint Vitus is hosting Underworld, a post punk/new wave/goth dance party for FREE!
  • Comedy-wise, head to Tinder Tales Live at QED and live vicariously through the horror of other people’s worst Tinder encounters! Tickets are $10 a pop.
  • Plus it’s Comedy By Proxy in Bushwick, which sounds real weird and good! Free w/ RSVP, $5 at the door, beer by donation, free pizza, and a lineup including Ben Kronberg, Lorelei Ramirez and more!

  • First, obviously get your ass out of bed and head to the 2018 Women’s March!
  • And after you’re done marching, take advantage of the open bar at Bizarre’s five-year anniversary in Bushwick! FREE BOOZE RULES!
  • You should also head to Union Hall for a new It’s A Guy Thing w/ very funny people like Mitra Jouhari, Catherine Cohen, Dara Katz and more! Tickets are just $6-$8.
  • (PLUS stick around for Dark Spots with Marcia Belsky, Shane Torres and more after that! Tickets are $8-$10.)
  • Speaking of comedy, Whiplash is happening at the Bell House tonight for $10-$12, and will feature Aparna Nancherla, Josh Rabinowitz, Jacqueline Novak, Casey James Salengo and more!

  • AND it’s the Temple Ballroom Show at Murmrr Ballroom ft. David Cross, Sasheer Zamata, Josh Rabinowitz and more! Tickets are $15-$20 each.
  • Miss Yumi Zouma at Baby’s All Right last night? Catch ’em again for another $16-$18 this evening!
  • Or if Allah-Las are more your jam, head to Brooklyn Steel for a $22-$25 show instead!
  • Still not vibing with those tunes choices? Hit up Rough Trade for a $12-$15 live set from Midnight Magic!
  • But maybe you’re more into dance party feels, in which case get to Saint Vitus for a new Night.Wav ft. all of the synthwave goodness for FREE before midnight!
  • Or for queer dance parties, head to The Spectrum! Tonight’s fete will set you back $15-$20 depending on when you decide to roll up.

  • For starters, warm up at C’mon Everybody, where they’re hosting Queer Soup Night! Suggested donation of $10-$20 for soup ‘n bread ‘n snacks // all proceeds will be donated to The Center for Anti-Violence Education.
  • Plus borrow somebody’s kid and head to Drag Queen Story Hour at Park Church Co-op!
