  • Boys and Girls - Four friends get in a pact to have sex with the Blair Witch before they finish high school only to end up with apple pies.
  • Shaft - Samuel L. Jackson plays John Shaft, Richard Roundtree's 1971 John Shaft's cousin who's more black, more private dick, somewhat less of a sex machine to all the chicks, more risk taking for his brother man, less copping-out when there's danger, and more complicated.
  • Titan A.E. - After Earth is destroyed by illegal aliens, Cale leads a ragtag, fugitive fleet, on a lonely quest-for a shining planet known as Earth ... er ...

Tonight's at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) it's Ripton. I think I remember seeing them before somewhere and having a somewhat positive view of them, but what the heck do I know? I don't even remember if I went out last Christmas eve eve to see them at the Krown.

In the mean time, Milestones (170 East Ave.) is hosting Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest with New Rule versus Uncommon Ground.

Unless something else comes up, dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

Later at The California Brew Haus (402 West Ridge Rd.) there's another Battle of the Bands with Brouhaha, Ten Typing Monkeys, Uttaro and Cheezer and Gad (or is that Cheezer & Gad?)

However, barring bad weather, I'll be on the roof at The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) to see The Buddhahood. Wrapped around the outside of the building there is one of the other Rochester staple events, The Downtown Alive at Five starting at 5 with The Skycoasters and Atlas.

Sadly I'll miss Mighty Peking Man at The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.)

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)

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

Starting this weekend is The Maplewood Rose Festival at The Maplewood Rose Garden (Driving Park and Lake Ave.)

Remember that The Photography of Alfred Stieglitz: Georgia O'Keeffe's Enduring Legacy opens tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the George Eastman House (900 East Ave.)

Later, the primo pick is Astronomical Unit at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) Sondra, Chris and I saw them play a few weeks back and they play funk-rock, and damn can they play.

Other than that though, there's The Coupe de Villes at the Jazz Room at The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) I saw them a little at the East End Festival and they were a solid bluesy band although I didn't get a chance to make a really good assessment.

If none of that floats your boat, Mind Strap will be opening for Better Days at Milestones (170 East Ave.)

Finally, Kage and Anita are hosting their summer Kage and Anita's Lawnchair Theatre. This week's installment is Izzard and Lizard: Part 2 with:

WBER night at Red (171 St. Paul.)

Tonight is another Camera Rochester meeting tonight at Atonement Lutheran Church (1900 Westfall Rd.) from 7:30 to 9:30. In a reversal from normal, this week is a competition night because of the picnic on the first Monday this month. I don't know if I'll bother entering anything, although I do have a few things matted up.

Trivia Quiz continues at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.)

By hook or by crook I'm going to see Jonathan Richman at Milestones (170 East Ave.) If you listen to WBER you'll hear him when you say "who the heck is this and why is WBER playing it?" I am of the understanding that he tends to interact with the audience so his recorded stuff doesn't sound so great out of context.

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.

The Nuts & Bolts Improv Troupe will again be at Club Vibes (150 Andrews St.) at 8:00 p.m. It's $5 to get in and it's way totally worth it.

Dan Liberto hosts his Open Mic Comedy Night at Froggy's Bar & Grill (1129 Empire Blvd.)
