Ack! I have been exposed to some genetic contagen which seems to be attacking me on a cellular level, modifying the DNA in each of my cells. I believe most Earthlings call this affliction ... The Flu.
On a completely unrelated note, I'm stabilizing the color scheme because this one is pretty readable and I like it. Also, it saves me the trouble of finding a new scheme week after week. :-)
Movies this week:
Tonight's good bet at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Watkins & The Rapiers is/are playing. It's not clear to me how many bands are actually playing.
Also, everybody's favorite comic Eddy Strange will be at the train wreck of a venue Comix Cafe (3450 Winton Pl.)
If you're trying to eek out a little more worldly understanding, the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.), is showing Texas Tenor: The Illinois Jacquet Story, the story of the jazz & blues ... uhhh ... hornist Jean Baptiste "Illinois" Jacquet.
Tonight there're no excuses not to see Amy's Comedy Cellar at 7:30 at Christian's Cafe in Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) The local comedians from the open mics around town get together to do a combination of stand-up and sketch comedy. It's free and you can't see it anywhere else.
Boston Brew Company
(251 Exchange Blvd.)
O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.
Later at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is The Hi-Risers.
Likewise, just to throw off your Saturday choices
(60 Gibbs St.)
If you're looking to be bold (bold?) this weekend, Geva's NextStage (75 Woodbury Blvd.) is hosting Hibernatus Interruptus: A Winter Festival of New Plays at noon and 4.
Now brought to levels of recurringness, a show called Audience Quiz is at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.) As Ian told me:
This is an ancient British ritual known as the Pub or Table Quiz -- performed in hostelries since before the start of recorded time. Little has changed in the millenia since early Man first formed groups aroiund the fire (or bar) and competed first for the spaces closest to the warmth (or alcohol) and then for tacky beer holders & T-shirts. Competition is fierce driven by the desire to lord over the assembled lesser beings. Sometimes rules are bent or broken -- the participants who brought a laptop and Grolier's CD and what seemed to be the entire Simon School MBA class were two of my favourites.
Open mic comedy at the Colosseum Caffe (262 Park Ave.) starting around 9:30.
Open mic poetry at Java's
(16 Gibb Street)
starting around 9:30.
South Park today at Rohrbach's at 315 Gregory Street at 10:00. Tonight's "classic" is Rainforest Schmainforest The boys visit the Costa Rican rain forest on their "Getting Gay With Kids" choir tour.
The Nuts & Bolts Improv Troupe will be at Club Vibes (150 Andrews St.) at 8:00 p.m. Curiously, this is where Token Joe's once was.
