There are a lot of things to consider mentioning in this opening monologue (A LOT), but I think I will just go ahead and pick two: 1. VOTE, 2. it’s Bandcamp Friday, so remember to support your favorite artists!

There’s plenty to do this weekend in the realms of virtual and IRL events, all of which we will get into very momentarily. (There are weirdly a lot of animal-related things happening, probably because the universe recognizes we need cute energy more than ever.) But first, here’s some stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week:

Friday October 2nd

Saturday October 3rd

  • Obviously spend your day at The Wharf, where loads of restaurants are celebrating Oktoberfest, and wiener dogs are strongly encouraged.
  • Speaking of dogs, Best In Shaw Dog Show kicks off at 11am.
  • You can also apparently pet some alpacas at La Cosecha Latin Market starting at noon, so there’s that…
  • In terms of tunes, we’ve got JD Samson going live on Elseworld TV at 7pm ET.
  • MidWay Music Festival is going virtual this year, too, so you can scope Okay Kaya, Madison McFerrin and more starting at 6:30pm ET. (Tickets are $15+.)
  • We’ve also got Hot Chip, John Talabot and more comin’ at you live from DICE for $7 again; lineup begins at 1pm ET.
  • Or tune into Democracy Comes Alive ft. virtual performances from Hiss Golden Messenger, Moon Taxi and many more; starts at noon ET.
  • If you flippin’ love guitars, though, maybe tune into Guitar.com’s day of virtual panels ft. appearances from St. Vincent, Jason Isbell and more; starts at 11am ET.
  • More into the occult? Witch School is back at Catland (virtually) starting today at 7pm ET; the full eight-week intensive is $150.
  • Or if you’re just missing Burning Man vibes real hard, hit up A Very Burner Bike Ride at 4:30pm.
  • (Regardless of what you do today, probably tune into the Season 46 premiere of SNL tonight.)

Sunday October 4th

  • For starters, you don’t have to be religious to appreciate the spectacle that is watching animals being professional blessed; tune into Online Blessing of the Animals at the National Cathedral starting at 1pm ET.
  • You should also swing by NMWA for another free community day from noon to 5pm.
  • It’s National Taco Day, and Taco Bamba’s doing its annual BAMBATHON!
  • More into learning to make your own food? Take Brooklyn Brainery’s $22 dumpling making class via Zoom at 11am ET.
  • Or if you just wanna pretend it’s 2018/2019 in LA, scope archived Hollywood Bowl performances by Flying Lotus and Santigold starting at 9:30pm ET.
  • More into TV vibes? David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet hits Netflix today, plus The Good Lord Bird premieres on Showtime, and The Walking Dead: The World Beyond premieres on AMC.
