As usual, there’s an exceptional amount of IRL and virtual programming happening the next few days; whether you want to scope a spooky movie outdoors, hit up a virtual music festival, stroll through a cemetery at night or tune into Portrait Gallery’s special Presidents and First Ladies live stream, you’re not likely to be disappointed by this weekend’s options. Before we get into the specifics, here’s what you might’ve missed from the BYT universe this week:

Friday October 16th

  • Kicking things off on a tunes note, most definitely support #SOSFest on YouTube; it’s running all weekend, and will benefit the National Independent Venue Association to prevent beloved spaces from going the route of U Hall. Tonight catch virtual performances from FINNEAS, Marshmello + Demi Lovato, Dillon Francis and more starting at 8pm ET.
  • You can also catch James Blake going live via Boiler Room TV at 5pm ET.
  • Rufus Wainwright is going live at 5pm ET as well for $25…
  • …or if you’re more into Trey Anastasio vibes, head on over to Twitch at 8pm ET.
  • Moving into movie territory, Miranda July’s Kajillionaire (which we loved) is now officially available to rent at home.
  • Or join NMWA for Cultural Capital – Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy, an online film screening and discussion, at 7pm ET; tickets are $10.
  • For spooky outdoor vibes, hit up Capitol Riverfront’s drive-in presentation of a Frankenstein/Dracula (1931 versions) double-feature to benefit DC Central Kitchen; $20 per vehicle.
  • Or if you’re in the Baltimore area, Cross Street Market will have a socially distanced outdoor screening of Ghostbusters.
  • Would you rather hang out in a graveyard at nighttime? Congressional Cemetery’s got a $40 SOUL STROLL for ya.
