Wow wow wow what another great week traipsing through the trash fires of 2018! Fortunately it’s just about to be the weekend, meaning we can shut off our brains for a few days to avoid going completely insane! And there’s lots to do, from Panorama (provided you have all of the finances, which I do not!) to John Waters Q+A’s to a KEANU REEVES TRIBUTE + TRIVIA NIGHT! (Our GIF theme because duh.) Before we talk details, here’s what you might’ve missed on BYT this week:


  • For starters, get to Damrosch Park for Selena for Sanctuary ft. Mon Laferte, Cuco, Gaby Moreno and more! It’s a free event, which is kind of amazing!
  • For cinematic vibes, it’s a Goonies-themed edition of A Drinking Game over at the Bell House! Grab yourself a $15 ticket and truffle shuffle on over there!
  • Plus Videology is hosting a tribute ‘n trivia night for Keanu Reeves! Tickets are $15.
  • You can also RSVP to Littlefield’s opening night party for the 15th annual Animation Block Party! They’re putting on a special edition of Picture This, and it’s F-R-E-E!
  • Or maybe you just wanna learn how to make your own incense, in which case get to Catland for a $15 crash course!

  • But if you’d rather just hit ye olde high seas, then grab a $39.99 ticket to catch The Black Lips and Surfbort on a goddamn boat!
  • Just wanna celebrate the full moon? There’s a dance party for that at House of Yes, because of course there is! Free before 11pm w/ RSVP, gotta pay up after that.

  • You can also suck up your hangover and head back out to Randall’s Island Park, where $99+ will get you a single day pass to today’s round of Panorama. (Two-day and three-day passes are obviously more expensive.) Today’s lineup includes Gucci Mane, Japanese Breakfast, Jay Som, Lo Moon, Sigrid, St. Vincent and more!
