We’ve got a lot to be thankful for this weekend, from Cinco de Mayo pre-festivities to the Kentucky Derby, but I happen to be MOST excited for a screening of Labyrinth at Nitehawk, and also all of this other stuff…

BUT FIRST, let’s talk about some things you may have missed this week on BYT:

  • For one thing, there’s still a little more time to enter to win two free tickets to Thrillist’s Taco Knockout this Sunday, so YOU SHOULD DO IT.
  • We’ve ALSO got your weekly dose of astrological answers, as told by Mad Men GIFs…
  • But maybe all the future holds for you is a spot on your couch to watch ALL OF THE NETFLIX ‘N DVDs, in which case here are some recommendations.
  • Lookin’ to go a little more artsy, though? Cruise our round-up of the best art events over the next few days RIGHT HERE.

And now for all this other stuff:


  • First, I’m going to highly recommend we all boogie on over to Bowery Ballroom this evening for a Connan Mockasin show, which will cost us a very reasonable fifteen bucks to enter.
  • There are also miraculously still tickets left to catch The Both (Aimee Mann and Ted Leo) at Music Hall of Willamsburg tonight, so if you can manage $25, you should DO IT.
  • We can also get a little pre-Cinco de Mayo action over at the Beacon Theatre tonight courtesy of Rodrigo y Gabriela, but be prepared to shell out between forty and seventy-five bucks to get it.
  • And if that’s not your jam but you happen to still be mega-rich, then maybe you should hit up Town Hall instead for a Ray LaMontagne show, which will set you back fifty bones.

  • All too pricey for your poor person wallet? Head to Glasslands for a Slow Magic show, then, because tickets are just twelve bucks in advance and will increase to fourteen day of show.
  • We’ve got another round of Telly Thursdays happening at Videology tonight, so if you’re into all things British, get over there from 5-7pm for two hours of free television bliss.
  • And are you a David Lynch fan? Well first of all, we support you, and second of all, you will likely want to stick around Videology for a free screening of his documentary this evening.
  • More just into the geriatric life? You’ll probably fit right in over at Union Hall, where Park Slope Bingo Club will meet tonight and YOU can get in on the action for just five bucks.
  • And HOLY EFF, we also have the option to hide from the never-ending rain at Nitehawk Cinema, where they’ll be screening a DOUBLE FEATURE of Wicker Man! WHAT UP, NIC CAGE?!


  • Tonight we’ve got another round of weekend Brooklyn Night Bazaar programming, which’ll feature the lovely Reverend Vince Anderson and His Love Choir for all of NO ENTRY FEE!
  • We can also head to Videology for some good old fashioned TV (literally), ’cause there’s tonight’s edition of TGIF happening from five until seven for completely free, and it’ll be good.
  • Do you prefer #FEAR, though? Stick around for tonight’s screenings of American Grindhouse and Scanners as part of Videology’s First Frightdays series! We can stay up all night because of terror!
  • If you’re looking to kick your weekend off on a budget with a solid show, though, most definitely head on over to Mercury Lounge for Elizabeth Rose and Sky White Tiger, which will cost you ten bucks.

  • BUT we’ve also got another opportunity to catch the ultra-fantastic Connan Mockasin at Music Hall of Williamsburg, so if you’re up for Brooklyn times, prepare to fork over fifteen bones.
  • And speaking of Brooklyn times, we’ve got an even more budget-friendly (and super worthwhile) show happening at Rough Trade ft. Frances Cone for $10 in advance, $12 day of show.
  • My personal votes go to Baby’s All Right tonight, though, ’cause Megafaun will be playing the early show for fifteen bucks, and Chrome Sparks will round it out for a late gig for $12 in advance, $15 day of show.
  • STILL not your jam? Pop up the road to Glasslands, then, because Computer Magic will be playing an EP release show tonight with Cheerleader and Corbu for only ten bucks!


  • Tonight we’ve got the May edition of Party Like It’s 1999 happening at the Bell House, so get ready to dance your effing face off fo’ FREE to the theme of Austin Powers. #APPROPRIATE
  • But if THAT ain’t your jam, you might consider heading to the Brooklyn Night Bazaar tonight, where they’ll be hosting a Pictureplane performance for all of zero dollars this evening.
  • AND AND AND we can head on over to the Brooklyn Museum for Target’s First Saturdays series, where tonight we can catch JD Samson, Jean Grae and others for FREE!
  • Of course, it’s ALSO the Kentucky Derby today, so you might just want to head on over to Union Hall where they’ll be screening the races AND serving up free Floyd beer cheese.
  • OR, provided you snag the new record from Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl) you’ll gain FREE entry to the band’s show at Rough Trade tonight.

  • Of course if you’re not into THAT, Rough Trade will also play host to a Sean Hayes show tonight. Of course, you WILL have to shell out between twenty and twenty-three bucks a ticket, but COULD be worth it.
  • We can ALSO catch yet another performance by Rodrigo y Gabriela at the Beacon Theatre this evening, so again, if you happen to have between forty and seventy-five bucks, you’re in luck.
  • Too pricey for your taste? Hit up Le Poisson Rouge instead for Deerhoof tonight instead, because tickets will cost you an ultra-reasonable eighteen bucks. WE CAN DO THIS!
  • STILL out of your budget range? WELL just head on back to Brooklyn, then, ’cause Baby’s All Right will play host to Luke Temple and others this evening for just ten bucks a ticket.
  • And if that’s still not calling out to you, maybe head to Brooklyn Bowl instead for DJ sets by Juan MacLean AND Nancy Whang; tickets to this will ALSO set you back just ten bucks.


  • Tonight we’ve got what APPEARS to be a free Across the Universe singalong happening at Videology, so if you like them spins on Beatles classics, this is most definitely for you.
  • And just around the corner at Brooklyn Bowl, there’s ANOTHER edition of It’s A School Night ft. band curation by none other than Chris Douridas. Just be sure to RSVP by 3pm Sunday to get on the list.
  • If you’re a Matt Pond PA fan, you’ll be overjoyed to hear that Rough Trade will host the Emblems 10 Year Anniversary show (can you believe it’s been that long?!) tonight for $17 in advance, $20 day of show.
  • If that doesn’t suit your post-drunk-pizza-and-Uber budget, though, then most likely you’ll need to head to Glasslands instead, where Weekend will play a show for $8 in advance, $12 day of show.

  • Or just head on over to Manhattan instead, where Jessy Lanza and Ricky Eat Acid will be playing Santos Party House tonight for a mere twelve bucks per ticket. AMAZING!
  • But because I know we’re all just ravenously hungover today, I’m going to vote we go re-booze at Thrillist’s Taco Knockout, where we can pretty much eat all of the tacos ever for between $50 and $75.
  • If tacos ain’t your jam, then probably head on over to Extra Fancy, where they’ll be hosting an all-you-can-eat crawfish boil out back; tickets are $25 and include the first BK Brewery beer fo’ FREE. (And then they’re just $3 after that.)
  • Of course, we could always just be mega-lazy today at Nitehawk Cinema for a brunch screening of (you guessed it) LABYRINTH! Thank Jesus for David Bowie in tight pants, AMIRITE?!

WOW SO MUCH STUFF! If I’ve failed to mention something near and dear to you, then please feel free to digitally berate me in the comments below and/or on Twitter. BYE!
