You guys, I went to Atlantic City last weekend and have STILL not fully recovered, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to hold out on you for what’s good the next few days, which happens to include a goddamned screening of MATILDA over at the Film Forum. We’ll get into all of that momentarily, but FIRST let’s discuss some important business you may have missed on BYT this week:

  • For starters, you can win tickets to Nat Geo Live’s event in NYC RIGHT HERE, so try your luck now.
  • You should also probably grab tickets to the next edition of OSB, which is happening in ONE WEEK.
  • It’s also the Super Bowl this weekend, so if you’re trying to celebrate that, here’s a definitive guide to what (and how) to succeed.
  • PLUS we did some taste-tests, the first of which being Cadbury chocolate bars in light of the impending Hershey’s import ban….
  • …AND Oreo sent us their new Red Velvet flavor to sample, slash you should be ALL OVER THAT come February.


  • First things first: Melanie Martinez (who you may know from The Voice, American Horror Story: Freak Show, etc.) will be playing Bowery Ballroom tonight for seventeen bucks OR forty-five if you’re tryna do that VIP jam…
  • Of course, if you’re not into THAT, then you should probably definitely hit up Music Hall of Williamsburg for a show by Owen Pallett AND Foxes In Fiction tonight for just fifteen bucks per ticket.
  • But if you’re STILL not feelin’ those vibes, then maybe consider hitting up Baby’s All Right for Wolf Alice and Charly Bliss, who’ll be playing for the very low price of ten bucks in advance // twelve day of show.
  • Plus we’ve got Porcelain Raft playing Cameo Gallery tonight with Noveller (record release show) and Ponyhof, so prepare to have the best time EVER EVER EVER for twelve bucks in advance // fifteen day of show.

  • AND Drenge will be playing a gig this evening over at Shea Stadium with Eula and Bueno starting at 8pm for the insanely solid deal of ten bucks per ticket // get ‘em now before they’re all sold out, yeah?
  • We also love us some Jo Firestone, so if you’re in the mood for LOLs then head on over to Videology, where five dollars will get you a spot to some live sitcom dubbing, which will be (pardon our French) THE GREATEST.
  • But I should DEFINITELY mention that Ask Roulette will be celebrating its third birthday with special guests Ted Leo (!!!), Julia Turner and MORE! All the action is happening at the Housing Works Bookstore for eight bucks a ticket.
  • Of course, if it’s booze that you’re searching for, you MIGHT just want to head to DUMBO for Digital DUMBO’s sixth anniversary party. Will you have to pay fifteen bucks to get in? Yes. But will the drinks be flowin’ for free after that initial fee? YES. Tickets here.

  • For starters, we’ve got Wolf Alice playing a show over at Mercury Lounge this evening with Drenge as the opening act // definitely swing by after work (show’s at 7:30pm) and grab yourself a ticket for just twelve bucks.
  • Frontier Ruckus will also be playing the late show at Mercury Lounge, so if you’re prepared to make an evening of it on the Lower East Side, then cough up another ten bucks in advance // twelve day of show.
  • MEANWHILE we’ve got Hamilton Leithauser playing Bowery Ballroom tonight with Elle King for the VERY reasonable price of twenty bucks a ticket. Doors are at 8pm and starts at 9pm, so get over there right after work, yeah?!
  • Ummmmm but let’s ALSO talk about how the B-52s will be playing The Space at Westbury tonight, so provided we can figure out how exactly the fuck to get there, we can have the greatest time ever for between thirty-five and seventy-five bones.

  • Or if you’re willing to brave the pandemonium that is almost always Terminal 5, then you’ll be glad to hear that Cherub will be taking the stage tonight with Mystery Skulls and ForteBowie for twenty-two bucks in advance, twenty-five day of show.
  • Maybe you should just head to Brooklyn, though, ’cause we’ve got a show from Invisible Familiars and Adam Schatz happening this evening for nine bucks in advance and/or twelve day of show.
  • Of course, let’s not forget that there is a nineties one hit wonders (so many of them…just so many…) singalong happening at Union Hall this evening for the low price of ten bucks a ticket // make sure you grab ’em now to ensure entry!
  • And if you’re feeling far too lazy for all of that, go rest your bones over at Nitehawk Cinema; they’ll be screening Dirty Harry, and you’ll be able to recline in non-treacherous-sidewalk-ice comfort whilst ordering food ‘n booze from your chair.

  • If you’re willing to trek it out to the Capitol Theatre tonight, then you’ll be OVERJOYED (at least, I THINK you will be…) to hear that the B-52s will be doing ANOTHER show this weekend, again for thirty-five to seventy-five bucks a ticket.
  • But if you’re trying to keep things a little more local, then probably get to Baby’s All Right for Sunflower Bean‘s EP release party (provided they’re ever able to get back from France in this weather) for eight bucks in advance // ten day of show.
  • You could ALSO scope The Bechdel Test over at Videology, where tons o’ funny ladies (hailing from Broad City, Flavorwire and MORE) will be discussing the female characters in 1. Bridget Jones’ Diary and 2. The Shining. (Makes sense.) FREE!
  • And speaking of free things, you can also RSVP to the first ever Bryant Park SILENT RAVE (or, Silent Disco as they’re calling it) which will involve drinks and food for purchase if you so desire, but mostly free dancin’.

  • I think we should PROBABLY all just get over to Union Hall, though, ’cause they’re hosting a Dolly Parton birthday celebration ft. Dolly Parton cover band Doll Parts! Tickets to this ultra-fab shindig are just EIGHT BUCKS!
  • And while we’re on the topic of cover situations, we’ve also got a good old fashioned Smiths // Morrissey party happening over at Le Poisson Rouge this evening for the VERY low price of five bucks per ticket! CANNOT BE BEAT!
  • And SPEAKING of Le Poisson Rouge, they’ve got even MORE programming to be excited about tonight…there’s a Back To The Eighties party that’s going on at both 8pm AND 11pm featuring Jessie’s Girl, the greatest cover band in the history of EVER for twenty bucks in advance, twenty-five day of show.
  • But again, there is always the possibility that you are just SO TIRED after a long work week, in which case you should drink a wee bit of coffee and prepare to get comfortable at Sunshine Cinema for a special midnight screening of Howl’s Moving Castle.

  • For starters, let’s talk about our Super Bowl options, shall we? For starters, Chelsea’s Meatball Shop location will be offering FREE (that’s right, F-R-E-E mini Chicken Buffalo Balls) for the entire first quarter.
  • Union Hall‘s also going to have a rad Super Bowl shindig for all of zero dollars, UNLESS you want to snag yourself some food and/or drink (available for purchase) // they have baskets of mini corn dogs, and this will be my complete downfall.
  • Not into that? Hit up the Gander NYC for an evening filled with all-you-can-eat // all-you-can-drink menu special ft. ribs, wings, mac ‘n cheese, Budweiser and (basically) ALL THINGS THAT ARE REAL GOOD.
  • But also, who says you can’t keep the Super Bowl SO LITERAL with a soup showdown at Littlefield? That’s right, Brooklyn’s finest will go head to head in the SOUP TAKEOVER, which will cost twenty bones to attend for ALL OF THE SAMPLES.

  • And if the Super Bowl ain’t your jam, you also can hit up another round of SNL Writers Unscripted over at Union Hall ft. Natasha Rothwell, Alison Rich and MORE  for just eight bucks in advance, ten day of show.
  • But maybe you just feel like sitting all day, in which case you should head on over to Nitehawk Cinema for NOT the Super Bowl, but for a good old brunch screening of Groundhog Day that’s set for just before noon.
  • And while we’re on the subject of movie screenings, I already promised you Matlida earlier, and I’m NOT GONNA RECANT. (So just get yourself over to the Film Forum by 11am to catch aforementioned screening of Matilda RIGHT NOW.)
  • Or just head BACK to Nitehawk Cinema for ANOTHER event tonight, which is a screening of the Super Bowl (naturally) that will feature twenty-five dollar food and beverage vouchers AND a screening of the Puppy Bowl in the lobby! (Thus bringing us full Super Bowl circle.)
