Hello! I’m very glad it’s the weekend because I genuinely am getting less and less adept at productivity in the midst of flames! Everything is not good! Maybe you agree! There’s plenty to distract ourselves with the next few days (including but not limited to Wet Hot American Summer screenings ft. bonus s’mores), so GET READY! But first, some stuff from BYT this week:

  • First, RSVP to get on the list for a FREE Torres show at Dr. Martens Union Square!
  • Or head to Baby’s All Right for a $15 Photay album release show!
  • And there are two solid shows at Mercury Lounge again tonight ft. In The Valley Below for $15 and Con Brio for another $15!
  • More into Nina Diaz? Head to Rough Trade for a $12 show!

  • Meanwhile, DIIV will perform unplugged at Murmrr Theatre for $30.
  • More into cooking? Michelle Tam will present her new cookbook at Strand Bookstore! Just buy a copy to attend.
  • Or if comedy’s your jam, head to Littlefield for a Nick Naney gig for $8!
  • Plus Matteo Lane, Liza Treyger and MORE will be at The Well for How Bernie Can Still Win! Suggested donation of $10-$20!

  • My top pick for tonight is a Four Tet show at Analog BK for $20!

  • Meanwhile, MIKNNA will be at Rough Trade for $15-$20!
  • Or if you’re bankrupt, just get to Bryant Park for free performances by Landlady and MORE!

  • For starters, hit up Littlefield for Tinder Live w/ Lane Moore! Tickets are $15.
  • (You should also stick around for Be Cute, the best queer dance party of all time, for $5!)
  • More into gloomy dance parties? Head to the latest round of Feeling Gloomy at Cape House! Bonus Girl Scout cookies! Tickets are $6!
  • Tunes-wise, if you can get yourself out to Montauk, obviously catch a Jenny Lewis set fo’ FREE!

  • First, it’s the India Day Parade! Starts at 11am.
  • Meanwhile, it’s a non-sold-out (as of this writing) Spoons, Toons ‘n Booze at Nitehawk, so probably grab tickets!
  • And/or watch Midnight Cowboy over at the Film Forum!
  • The one and only show I’m going to tell you to see today is Mulatu Astatke at Central Park because 1. free and 2. SO GOOD AND IMPORTANT.
