You guys. YOU GUYS. The Winter Olympics starts TOMORROW (or at least the opening ceremony does), and I don’t think I’ve ever been more hype on anything IN MY WHOLE LIFE. “How come, Megan?” BECAUSE it’s two full weeks of human strength and agility! And also it’s happening in Korea, home to the greatest pop groups and cuisine of all time! There is basically nothing to NOT be excited about! But if you for some bizarre, inhuman reason don’t feel amped, rest assured that there’s plenty to do this weekend that doesn’t involve people doing crazy cool shit on skis and skates. One of those things is stalking NYFW events, which kicks off today. (I will not be doing that because NYFW is my most dreaded time of year, and while I usually use Anna Wintour as our GIF theme because that is very funny, I just feel like I cannot not make this about Tonya Harding because I repeat: WINTER OLYMPICS = EVERYTHING.) We will address all of your going out options momentarily, but FIRST, here is some stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week if you were asleep at ye olde internet wheel:

  • NYFW kicks off today! Avoid at all costs like me!
  • Tonight my top pick is a $20 Girlpool and Land of Talk show at Brooklyn Steel!
  • You can also see SOPHIE for $25 at Elsewhere…
  • …plus Weyes Blood will be at House of Vans, and tickets are free w/ RSVP!
  • Just wanna d-d-d-d-dance to dark synth // electroclash // 80s // darkwave?! You can at this party! Free before 11pm, $3 after.

  • Comedy-wise, you can see Ophira (Eisenberg) & Adira (Amram) over at Union Hall for $10!
  • You can also catch Tom Green at the Bell House for $30!
  • More into movies? HER is screening at Videology for $12 tonight!
  • It’s also Ingmar Bergman madness over at the Film Forum, and will be thru March! Bunk off work early and watch The Seventh Seal!

  • First, you can participate in America’s favorite pastime (spirit seances) over at Catland tonight! $15 to attend.
  • You should also obviously see Adan Jodorowsky at Baby’s All Right for $15-$20 because he makes good music, but also because that’s probably as close as you’ll ever get to being near his dad, Alejandro Jodorowsky.
  • I’d also highly recommend a $14-$16 Palehound and Weaves show at BK Night Bazaar…
  • …plus a $12-$15 Negative Gemini and George Clanton show at Elsewhere…

  • First, definitely catch Umfang and Doss at H0L0 tonight for $12-$15.
  • You can also see UNiiQU3 at Rough Trade for $12-$15…
  • …AND Paperwhite’s at Mercury Lounge for $10-$12.
  • If you’re more into burlesque (electric disco space pirates-themed burlesque, that is) then head to the Bell House to catch a show from Wasabassco! Tickets are $10-$30.

  • If queer dance parties are more your scene, head to one of Brooklyn’s finest at Littlefield! Tickets to Be Cute are just $5.
  • For comedy vibes, head to Bowery Comedy! Tonight’s lineup features Dave Hill, Greg Barris and more, and it’s free if you RSVP.
  • Movie-wise, you can watch a $4 midnight screening of From Justin To Kelly at Syndicated. (WHO DOESN’T WANT TO DO THAT?!)
  • Plus Videology is hosting a $12 midnight Billy Madison drinking game!
  • And speaking of drinking, you can also head to the Brooklyn Craft Spirits Fest at Brooklyn Expo Center! Tickets (ft. unlimited samples) are $39 a pop.


(I mean, you can’t not reference this moment if you’re talking Tonya.)
