My love for Australia has always been more or less unbridled, but I could never let myself fully get lost in the passion due to a little thing called marriage inequality. BUT NOW…now that 61.6% of the population said “FUCK YOU, OTHER 34.8%, WE VOTE YES!” I can become the true biggest fan I was always meant to be. And so our GIF theme for this weekend will be none other than Kath & Kim (the OG version, not the bullshit American failure w/ Selma Blair and Molly Shannon), which is pretty much my favorite piece of Australian television (apart from Wentworth, which is like OITNB on kangaroo crack) of all time, and feels v. fitting at this celebratory time. Before we get into all of that, here’s what you might’ve missed on BYT this week:

  • First, grab $25 tickets to the second session of Chapo Trap House at the Bell House, ’cause the first round is SOLD OUT.
  • Tunes-wise, Mary Lambert and Mal Blum will be at Highline Ballroom for $20+!
  • Plus catch Stars for night two of three at Rough Trade for $31!
  • Meanwhile, Mark Mulcahy’s at Mercury Lounge for $18-$20!
  • More into Arkells? Catch a $20 show at Bowery Ballroom tonight!
  • Or if Circa Survive and Thrice are more your jam, head to Terminal 5 for a $37-$42 show!
  • Miss Silversun Pickups earlier this week? They’re back at it again at Brooklyn Steel for $42-$45 tonight!
  • Or catch Michael Blume for a second night, this time at Baby’s All Right for $15-$18!
