Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.

This weekend, NBNY hosts Bring Your Own Beamer (Oct 19 9pm–1am; $TBA, free with beamer and R.S.V.P. to firstname.lastname@example.org), a concept that first debuted in Berlin (so you know it’s legit). Everyone is invited to attend with a projector (beamer) and playback device to create a patchwork of moving images on the 50-foot-high walls. If you don’t have such equipment on hand, just show up to enjoy the visual spectacle, music by guest DJs (A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad spun opening night) and refreshments by French joint Le Gamin.
The next night, local recording studio the End curates the space (Oct 20 8:30pm–2am; $20, advance $15), with music by Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio) with Monogold, Bird Courage, Kelli Rudick, and David Watson with the Fair Use Trio.
