You guys, it has been a long, regular-length work week, and I think we deserve some ultimate relaxation starting RIGHT NOW! (Or like, in a few hours from now.) There is a TON of great programming this weekend, ft. a record amount of solid shows PLUS A SCREENING OF HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS // WHAT EVEN DO YOU MEAN?! So let’s get into all that now, but FIRST, here are a few great things you may have missed on BYT this week:

  • First, we’ve started our BEST OF 2014 round-ups, which (so far) have included BOOKS and TV!
  • We also had some dope band interviews, one of which was with Chaz Bundick // Toro Y Moi!
  • Another of those interviews was with teenage siblings Brandon and Savannah of The Heirs
  • …and ANOTHER was with Lambchop!
  • (And the crown jewel is our chit-chat with Yo La Tengo, obviously.)

  • I’m pretty super into the Strand of Oaks // Torres show that’s happening at Bowery Ballroom tonight, so if you think you can scrape together fifteen bucks in advance and/or eighteen day of show, you should PROBABLY do it.
  • But if you’re hoping to keep things Brooklyn-centric, then you may be interested to know that tUnE-yArDs will be playing a gig with Cibo Matto and BEEP tonight for thirty-five bucks a ticket. (Get ‘em quick, ’cause they’ll definitely sell out.)
  • Plus we’ve got ANOTHER opportunity to catch New Build this week (this time over at Rough Trade with Future Punx and Orange Cassettes) at 9pm for seventeen bones in advance, twenty day of show.
  • And speaking of second chances to catch bands this week, Yo La Tengo will be playing another show at Town Hall tonight, this time with The Feelies. Tickets are yet again between thirty-two fifty and forty-two fifty.

  • HOWEVER, the fact that TEEN and BEVERLY will be playing Glasslands tonight is pretty enticing, so maybe skip all that other stuff and make your way over there with twelve bucks in hand, yeah?
  • And if you’re somehow not into ANY of the things I’ve just listed, then you may be interested to hear that just a bit south of Glasslands we’ve got Baby’s All Right hosting Sophia Knapp tonight for just eight bucks in advance, ten day of show.
  • You can also always hit up the Bell House for a BuzzFeed Live event, which will set you back ten bucks and will include tunes, new videos and MORE.
  • Or like, just head to Edible Manhattan’s event this evening, which has got free Brooklyn Brewery beer and plenty o’ locally-made snacks to sample for just five bucks a ticket.

  • If you’re able to make your way on out to the Capitol Theatre tonight, you MIGHT be glad to hear thatPat Benatar will be playing there tonight. (THINK OF THE POWER BALLADS!) Tickets will run you between forty-five and eighty bucks a pop.
  • But since I know we’re not likely to be anywhere near there (OR equipped with that kind of cash) I’m going to suggest we hit up Glasslands instead for a show from The Blow, Zambri AND Cookies, which will cost you just twelve bucks to attend.
  • Or if you don’t mind traversing the Brooklyn non-wilderness to get to BAM, then you’ll be super glad to hear The Complete Piano Etudes by Philip Glass will be performed by Philip Glass and nine other talented pianists for twenty bucks.
  • Don’t mind making it a Manhattan night? Zip on over to Cake Shop, where Raccoon Fighter will play a show with BOYTOY, Whiskey Bitches and MORE for just eight bucks per ticket. (VALUE!)

  • You could also just zip a few doors down to Pianos, where Heavy Lights will be playing a show with Twin Wave and Joy Classic for the low price of ten bones a ticket beginning at 8:30pm.
  • Or maybe you just have no money at all, in which case you just need to worry about getting yourself to the Knitting Factory (you know, back in Brooklyn) for a free evening of tunes with The Ugly Club and The Due Diligence.
  • You might also want to try to get on the list to Converse’s Noise To the World event tonight in SoHo, which will feature extra-dope holiday covers by The Dum Dum Girls AND Ice Choir for FREE.
  • Or like, just skip the tunes altogether and head to Sunshine Cinema, where Love Actually will be screening just in time for the holidays and IT WILL BE THE GREATEST THING OF ALL TIME.
  • Not into that? Maybe a little too cheerful or whatever? Head to Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, then, ’cause THEY will be hosting a screening of Black Christmas, seemingly JUST FOR YOU.

  • If you’re looking for an early show to keep the momentum of your day drinking going, def-o hit up Mercury Lounge at 6:30 for Canon Logic, Modern Inventors and Regret the Hour; tickets are ten bucks in advance, twelve day of show.
  • BUT I would also like to highly recommend the BADBADNOTGOOD show that’s happening up the street at Bowery Ballroom, too; doors are at 8pm and show’s at 9pm, and tickets will set you back fifteen bones a pop.
  • Of course, if you don’t mind braving the horrors of Terminal 5, then you might be interested to know that Lucius will be taking the stage at 8pm with Bahamas and Elaphant for twenty-six bucks and fifty cents!
  • But let’s get real; the only thing we need to focus on tonight is getting to Glasslands for a CHERYL party (more specifically: “A Nail In the Coffin”, which is a “Dance Party Funeral for the Neighborhood of Williamsburg”) that will cost you ten bones at the door.
  • And while we’re on the subject of ten dollar shows (fifteen day of) that will feature some dope dance tunes, we kind of HAVE to address the fact that there will be a Hot Chip DJ set happening over at Good Room tonight.
  • Willing to fork over an arm and a leg for your live music experience tonight, though? You might want to get cracking on selling non-vital organs on the black market, ’cause Cyndi Lauper & Friends (aka 50 Cent, Sufjan Stevens and others) will take place at Beacon Theatre for $60+ per ticket.

  • Since I doubt you have that much cash, though, I’m just going to go ahead and vote we head on over to BAM to catch ANOTHER opportunity to see Philip Glass perform his complete piano etudes live for twenty bucks.
  • Or like, just hit up the dopest concept for a show of all time over at Baby’s All Right, where the mother effing Rock Lottery is happening for fifteen bucks a ticket and will feature an insane melange of all-star musicians tonight.
  • And for something slightly more affordable, get on the RSVP list for Pandora’s holiday Discovery Den ft. free tunes from Kiesza, The Neighbourhood and Rudimental jn Manhattan.
  • But UMMMMMMMM let’s just talk about how it’s DAY ONE of the Brooklyn Cookie Takedown, which means you can snag bottomless eggnog AND cookies for twenty bucks this afternoon, slash YOU SHOULD DO IT.
  • And if you’re too poor for that, probably just head over there (the Bell House) a bit later tonight, ’cause they’ll be hosting another free round of Party Like It’s 1999, the theme this time being Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” OBVIOUSLY.

  • First, I would totally let you take me on a date to go see the Max Richter performance that’s happening at Bowery Ballroom this evening; tickets are thirty bucks a pop, so hopefully you are gainfully employed or whatever!
  • PLUS we’ve got a show from NEIGHBORS, Beast Patrol, Isadora, Riverwild and MORE starting at 7pm at Glasslands for just ten bucks, which is just about the best value you’ll find in New York City tonight.
  • Or like, if you’re just broke as fuck like I predict I will be, then let’s all just be sure to get on the RSVP list for tonight’s edition of School Night over at Brooklyn Bowl, which is free as always and will featureKendra Morris as its headliner.
  • It’s also the Brooklyn Cookie Takedown DAY TWO happening at the Bell House this afternoon, so if you feel like grabbing bottomless eggnog and cookies to get in the fat-o holiday spirit, then get twenty bucks at the ready!

  • And then after THAT, you should most definitely get camped out at the Bell House for Trivia Night For Cheaters, which costs twenty-five bones to play and ten to spectate, AND it’s all hosted by the lovely, inimitable John Hodgman.
  • OR we can just focus on getting uptown to 92Y, where we’ll be able to hear Bill Nye in conversation for thirty-seven bucks and IT WILL BE THE GREATEST THING EVER.
  • But maybe you’re mega-hungover, in which case you’ll want to hit up Nitehawk Cinema to laze around in a dark movie theater all day with a screening of Gremlins!
  • And HOLY GODDAMN // they will be screening Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (when the fuck was the last time you thought about THAT movie?!) at the Film Forum at 11am, so GET OUT OF BED so you can get emotional when Anty gets killed by that scorpion!
