Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 65. My Own Little Cultural Revolution

Hosted By Dreamhost Well here I am at my new 'home' (or is it iHome?). Hopefully Dreamhost won't keep taking away services like Servtech/Verio did. I may even get around to fixing up the new homepage at JayceLand.com.

In other news, The Kids in the Hall will be performing live at Shea's Performing Arts Center in Buffalo on April 8. Tickets available at Ticketmaster, 852-5000 (charge by phone). I've decided to skip it. The consensus among most people I know is that if they were at a small venue in Rochester, it would be a no-brainer. Since they're (1) in Buffalo, and (2) in a presumably very large place, it's really not worth it.

Just as quiet reminder, Ellen DeGeneres will be at the Auditorium Center (875 Main St E or at East & Gibbs) on May 10 at 7:30 p.m.

  • Black and White - In the true color world of Black and White, black people and white people attempt to get along in a cinematic vehicle.
  • Ready to Rumble - Wrestling is as real as the square root of -1.
  • Return to Me - A man follows his recently deceased wife's heart to a local waitress.
  • Rules of Engagement - Bad people order some marines are ordered to gun down unarmed, innocent civilians. "Just following orders" doesn't seem so funny later.

Tonight's good bet at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Sedona.

Despite the unfortunate venue, Bad Seed and White Cotton Panties will be at Penny Arcade (4785 Lake Ave.) at 9pm.

And in the "Dan Liberto Won't Quit" category, Dan Liberto and Mike Dambra will be doing their bits at Comedy Night at The Farm (927 Victor Rd.)

Also, Milestones (170 East Ave.) is hosting Pork Tornado featuring Jon Fishman. I don't know anything about them but I just like saying Pork Tornado. (pork tornado, pork tornado, pork tornado)

WRUR night at Red (171 St. Paul.)

Week after week, there's basically no excuses this week 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. Oh, and Sean (Tony) and Kelly didn't like it much. However, sushi and sake beforehand at California Rollin' tends to help out quite a bit.

Ok, so maybe you really are dying to see Barry Manilow at the Auditorium Center (875 Main St E.)

Or maybe the humorous telling of the life of Robert Crumb in the film Crumb at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.)

Also, Stop Kiss is at Geva Theatre NextStage (75 Woodbury Blvd.)

Karaoke at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)

I guess we'll probably see a very tired and battered Derrick either at lunch or later on because the RIT Spring Juggle-In is in the Clark Gym at RIT (One Lomb Memorial Dr.) from 10a.m. to 5p.m. Freetime quaintly refers to this as the Henrietta Campus.

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

Later at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Ball Cheese Psychotics.

Just to see if it is actually impossible to fit them, the acoustic band Acousticity is at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton)

Meanwhile, the solid Syracuse band Johnny Vegas with Better Days is at Milestones (170 East Ave.)

Don't miss The Great Batavia Train Show from 9:30a.m. to 3:30p.m. at Batavia Downs (8315 Park Rd., Batavia)

  • Futurama: A Clone of My Own - Professor Farnsworth creates a clone named Cubert on the occasion of his 150th birthday.
  • King of the Hill: Hank's Bad Hair Day - The government bills Hank $900 for a haircut he gets at the hands of an Army barber.
  • Simpsons: Days of Wine and D'Oh'ses - Forswearing alcohol, a newly sober Barney spearheads a rescue mission to save Bart and Lisa.
  • Malcolm in the Middle: Funeral - Exasperated with nonstop complaints, Lois throws in the towel, which leads to the rapid breakdown of family life.

The prolific Dan Liberto is starting another Open Mic Comedy Night, this time at Village Rock Cafe (213 Main St., East Rochester)

Tonight at Geva Theatre NextStage (75 Woodbury Blvd.) is American Voices New Play Reading Series: Pickett's Charge at 7:30p.m. I guess this is something other than another full blown production because Stop Kiss is still playing.

Audience Quiz is at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.)
