JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #92. Finally Dated!

Based on what you're about to read, you would think I never received no education in writing, particularly in light of the following detached thoughts:

As part of the transition to a brave new world-wide web, I thought I'd make a minor major change around here -- the page now has a new title so search engines will lick its tasty entrails. Maybe I'll add some ads again soon ... if this starts to take off. Hopefully nobody noticed the glitches last week with the lunch stuff and the movie descriptions.

Sometimes when you get work done on your car, it's not obvious, and sometimes you do something visual (i.e. clean it), but it is so great to do something that makes the car feel different. As some of you know, I put in a short-throw shift lever in my car last week. Although it was kinda expensive ($70) it makes the car seem like better-than-new.

Blasting through Freetime Magazine I caught an interesting blipvert from the city. Well okay, you have to be really flying to think of it as a blipvert but nonetheless:

The City of Rochester, New York, is seeking proposals from interested applicants to produce a ticketed two-day music festival, the Rochester MusicFest, at an outdoor venue July 21 and 22, 2001. Th event is entering its seventh year and is financially solvent. The city seeks assistance with talent booking, marketing, underwriting support, and logistics. Applicants may bid on all or any part of the proposal.

For a complete description of the request for proposal or, for more information, contact Stephanie Gradinger, 716-428-6693 or sgrading@mcls.rochester.lib.ny.us. Bids must be received by October 23, 2000, City Hall, Rm. 222B, 30 Church St., Rochester, NY 14614.

Dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

Let's see ... the big show is Moby at RIT's (One Lomb Memorial Dr.) Clark Gymnasium at 8. The show is apparently sold out, so good luck getting tickets if you don't have any.

Next, it's another East End Fest -- East End Rockin' Oktoberfest. I don't know if there's any outdoor activity or if they're closing the street, but at least there will be some tunes down in the area.

For instance ... Ned Pepper will be at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) starting at 9. I still seem to remember them being pretty good but not amazing. Hope that helps!

Way over at Shorts (35 N. Main St., Fairport) is the solidly good modern-rock cover band Better Days, probably starting around 10.

If you're into the movies tonight, the classic -- nay -- the defacto telling of The Grapes of Wrath is playing 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.

Best up for tonight is An Evening with Wayne Brady at 8 at RIT (One Lomb Memorial Dr.) I don't know if there are tickets left, but it's worth a shot.

Tonight The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) looks to have a pretty good show with Krypton-88 and Frantic Flattops. starting around 10:30.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is The Gifted Children for $2 at the door starting around 10:30. I haven't seen their name kicking around so I assume they're either new or from out of town.

Finally, the good modern-rock cover band Better Days will be at the clean-cut bar Fat Moe's (4419 Dewey Ave.) maybe as early as 9-ish.

At 11 and 2 during the day (in fact yesterday too) on the weekends (in fact last weekend too) until the 22nd, the Ontario Midland Railroad (48 Belden Ave. or Rotterdam Rd.) has a 2-hour fall foliage rail tour in old New York Central Stainless Steel Rail Passenger Cars.

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at The Blue Room (293 Alexander St.) Check out some singers, then head downstairs and regain your hearing.

I Thought It Was Premiere Night:

  • Football
  • Baseball

Updated 2000-Oct-12: Nuts and Bolts might be at Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) They've been having trouble getting people to come and are probably going to switch to once a month. If they're there, the show starts around 8 and there's a $5 cover.
