Welcome to another promising weekend, you guys! I am babysitting a cat named Unicorn who is getting her fur on all of my clothes, but I still love her! Anything is possible! Also, Dogtooth is screening this weekend, and (I will repeat it later) is one of my favorite movies ever, and I would do anything to marry Yorgos Lanthimos but he is already married to Ariane Labed, and she is v. beautiful and v. accomplished. ALAS. Anyway, it’s our GIF theme for the weekend // DEAL WITH IT! Before we get into the details of that and ALL your options this weekend, here’s what you might’ve missed on BYT the last few days:

  • I gave you a new Posi-Vibes Playlist, ’cause lord knows we all need as many good vibes as possible RN…
  • If you’re planning to hit up a show this weekend, here’s a companion guide for some spots to hit up nearby for pre-drinks and/or pre-bites!
  • We also gave you a breakdown of the best band merch coming to a venue (or computer screen) near you! Go forth and bankrupt yourself!
  • I ate at Local Leaf, the new fast-casual lettuce wraps resto, in Murray Hill and was saddened how much I liked it because Murray Hill!
  • Haywood Turnipseed Jr. told us about what it was like to meet Dick Gregory (RIP) and the influence of the late comedian’s work.
  • And no one wrote a think piece about Taylor Swift’s new record because BYT doesn’t suck!

  • Meanwhile, The Flamin’ Groovies are at Rough Trade for $20-$25!
