Let me tell you a tale about what I did last weekend! I (essentially) lied to all my friends who asked me to hang out by citing imaginary birthday parties I needed to turn up at, while in actuality I sat home and housed episodes of the most magical British show of all time (behind GBBO and AbFab, but still incredible) BACK IN TIME FOR DINNER! I sat and I sat and I sat in solitude eating veggie corn dogs whilst British people immersed themselves in various historical diets from 1900 to present, and it was p. great. I would do it all over again, but this weekend I will be at a wedding in DC (SVETLANA’S wedding, who, if you’re somehow not familiar, is the founder of this whole BYT shebang), though REST ASSURED, I have still formulated a plan for all of Y-O-U who will be in ye olde NYC the next couple of days. Lots to get stoked on INCLUDING but not limited to a David Lynch tribute art show ft. free beer, Luna Park’s seasonal opening day on Coney Island, a ton of rad live tunes, a boozy screening of The Devil Wears Prada (OBVIOUSLY our GIF theme…) and MORE, so get ready for all of that starting momentarily! First, let’s talk about what you may have missed on the site this week if you were too busy taking to the streets with Pepsi cans:

  • First, obviously go watch Some Like it Hot at Videology for $20, the price of which includes a Manhattan to fuck you up real good.
  • Music-wise, my top pick goes to the $18 Emily Wells and Shilpa Ray show that’s happening at LPR…
  • …though a close second goes to a $12 Half Waif gig at Silent Barn.
  • Meanwhile, Crystal Fighters are back at Music Hall of Williamsburg for $20 tonight.
  • You can also catch Active Bird Community at Mercury Lounge for $12…
  • …and Andrew Combs is at Rough Trade for $15.
  • More into Pile? Head to Baby’s All Right to catch a $15 show.

  • Or see Xiu Xiu at Brooklyn Bazaar for $15 // tickets are at the door…
  • …and Phew will be at First Unitarian Congregational Society for $20.
  • Got all of the money? Use that dough to support Planned Parenthood at a $45 Savoir Adore show.
  • But maybe you’re looking to spend $0, in which case hit up House of Vans for a free Little Simz and Kitty Cash show.
  • If it’s queer dance parties you’re after, look to Metropolitan for a new round of Gays Against Guns! $5 suggested donation at the door to benefit the Gays Against Guns organization.
  • In non-tunes territory, you can head to the last Nerd Nite o’ the season at Littlefield for $14.

  • You can also benefit Planned Parenthood at a ladies’ dance party at Littlefield for just $7-$10.
  • OR get intellectual over at Strand Books to talk about Zelda Fitzgerald for $20 and drink complimentary beer ‘n wine all the while.
  • You should also do what I would do, aka be a fucking snob and watch Alphaville at Metrograph tonight.
  • It’s also still David Lynch mania over at IFC Center, so if you’re down to scope Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, etc., then PROBABLY DO IT.

  • Meanwhile, Las Rosas and Breanna Barbara are at Baby’s All Right for just $10.
  • AND Kneebody will be at LPR for $17-$22.
  • UK Subs are also at Berlin for $20-$25…
  • …and The Hood Internet play Brooklyn Bowl for $15.
  • More into immersive stuff? Head to a warehouse party that combines music, design and art! Tickets to Black NYC are $60+.
  • You can also always spend $20-$25 to chill with Mara Wilson for The Room Where It’s Happening at the Bell House!
  • OR head to Videology for Videoke, which is genius and free and is basically karaoke except instead of singing songs you reenact movie scenes.

  • First, hit up Luna Park’s opening day on Coney Island! There’ll be free rides, giveaways, egg creams…ALL OF THE THINGS! SPRING BE SPRUNG!
  • You can also shake off that hangover with some hair o’ the dog at the Bloody Mary Festival! Tickets are $50+ and feature three hours of food ‘n booze.
  • Tunes-wise, Jojo Abot’s at Baby’s All Right for $10-$15.
  • Meanwhile, Mark Eitzel and Howe Gelb are at Rough Trade for $18-$20.
  • AND Jonathan Richman’s at Bowery Ballroom for $20.
  • Plus UK Subs have two shows at Bowery Electric today for $20 a pop.
  • (You can also hit up City Winery for a $35+ BETTY show, aka the band that cursed us with that horrible, horrible L Word theme song!)
  • It’s also a new combo Risk! + Snap Impression Live at the Bell House ft. Michelle Buteau and MORE! Tickets are $20-$25 a pop.
  • And it’s Sasheer Zamata Party Time at Littlefield for just $7-$10 a ticket! Chill w/ Jon Glaser, Ana Fabrega and more // IT’LL BE GOOD.

  • If you’re an Alexandra Elle fan, though, you’ll want to hit up Strand Books for a special Neon Soul signing! Event admission = buying a copy of the book.
  • Or if it’s movies you’re after, head to Videology for a $20+ screening of The Big Lebowski ft. bonus White Russian for each guest! (Dairy AND non-dairy available!)
  • You can also watch The Terminator at Metrograph instead, WHO AM I TO STOP YA?!
  • But did you see 20th Century Women? I was a fan (even though I feel ambivalently about Greta Gerwig), and so if you feel comfortable taking my word for it, catch a $7 screening at Syndicated tonight.
  • It’s also worth noting that The Red Shoes is screening at Moving Image…
  • …plus if you think you’ll be alive and moving for brunch, kill two birds with one stone and eat whilst watching The Last Days of Disco at Nitehawk.
