YOU GUYS. YOU GAYS. YOU GUAYS. Disobedience is officially in theaters tomorrow, and I am BEYOND excited about that, because everyone else was like “OH MY GOD CAROL WAS SO GOOD” and I was like “NO”, so I feel like this is the universe finally giving me the film I deserve to love. Unless I don’t love it, in which case I will be mad at Carol AND at Disobedience. Only time will tell. Anyway, it gives me yet another opportunity to hate on Carol, which, if you’ve been reading BWB for a while, you should know I do v. often. Yes, Carol is our GIF theme. No, I am not sorry. Yes, I will be telling you about things to do other than see Disobedience. No, I will never be able to walk through Bed-Stuy again without suspecting everyone is secretly in a homosexual relationship. Yes, Carol is playing at Videology on Saturday. No, I will not be going because do you have to ask.

Before we start chit-chattin’ about all your options the next few days, here’s some rad stuff you might’ve missed on BYT:

THURSDAY, APRIL 26

  • For starters, get ready for ALL OF THE GLITTER over at House of Yes’ light + space event! Ariana & The Rose will be putting on the first of three immersive performance art slash concert slash disco dance parties, and tickets are $20 a pop!
  • Speaking of $20 a pop, as of this writing there are MIRACULOUSLY some tickets left to see Ilana Glazer & Friends at Union Hall, so snap ’em up quick or else!
  • Meanwhile, it’s the Comedy Co-op at Littlefield ft. Janeane Garofalo, Liza Treyger, Seaton Smith and MORE of our favorite people for $30!

And so the nightmare begins.

U-Hauling: The Origin Story

SATURDAY, APRIL 28

  • For starters, pop over to Catland for a new Zodiac Market! IT’S TAURUS TIME, Y’ALL!
  • It’s also WFMU’s record fair over at the Brooklyn Expo Center, so if you’re into vinly, probably swing on by!
  • In terms of tunes, Ryan Hemsworth is at Elsewhere for $15-$17, and so is Lapalux for $12-$15!
  • Meanwhile, Michigander and Cape Francis will be at Rough Trade for $10…
  • It’s also Emo Night at Brooklyn Bowl! Tickets are $15.
  • You can also head to Union Hall for a new round of Picture This w/ Seth Herzog, Emmy Blotnick and more! Tickets are $8-$10 each.
  • (PLUS stick around for White Chocolate w/ Janelle James, Christi Chiello and more! Also $8-$10!)
  • If a Moulin Rouge singalong is more your jam, then head on over to the Bell House for exactly that! Tickets are $12-$15 a pop.
  • Or MAYBE you want to go watch Carol for some reason, in which case do that at Videology! Tickets are $24 and include a bonus dry martini.
  • (But if I were you, I’d shell out $25 for their Goodfellas screening instead, which features a bonus Death in the Afternoon cocktail and, unlike Carol, is a great movie.)

(Words I have never uttered.)

SUNDAY, APRIL 29

Girl, always take the free trip to France.

  • If you wanna skip the tunes and hit up the movies instead, catch a $20 screening of The Virgin Suicides at Videology and get a bonus peach Schnapps! Huzzah!
  • Or if you just wanna swap some clothing ‘n costumes, head on over to House of Yes between 3pm and 7pm! Free!
  • For comedy, get to Sunnyvale to LOL w/ Jo Firestone, Ayo Edebiri and more! Tickets are just $6.
  • If drinking is more your MO, then get to The Museum of Interesting Things’ latest Secret Speakeasy! Doomsday themed! $10 tickets! Be there or be square!
