JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #94. Move over Hematin, Now There's Something Meatier

I made some bread on Tuesday. No, I didn't win the lottery. I made bread, you know, mixing flour and stuff together then making it hot for a while ... bread. Despite doing stuff mostly the same as the recipe (no shortening, more butter in this case) it never seems to come out stellar. It's usually pretty good like it is this time but I'm just not loving it. The question is, is that a good thing or a bad thing? Should one love bread? I've got little ants in the kitchen too, and I figure they love bread. I put out some of those kill-the-queen bait thingies but I don't know if it'll work. I figure it's like beer to them ... "Hey Queen, check this out. It'll give you a good buzz and I figured that should be reserved for royalty." Silly little ants.

As I had mentioned last week, They Might Be Giants will be playing at the Alexandra Palestra in the Goergen Athletic Center at University of Rochester (River Campus Map) on November 10. Tickets are on sale now at University of Rochester common market, Record Archive (1394 Mount Hope Ave.) Lakeshore Record Exchange (370 Park Ave.) and Tickets.com.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have a port wine tasting early in the evening and then Ten Typing Monkeys starting around 10:30-ish. I saw them at Anne Murphy's Fiddlers Green a few weeks back. They primarily play 1970's disco and dance-music covers and, despite my dislike of that particular flavor of 70's music, they're a very tight band who's obviously been playing for a while.

Tonight at Milestones (170 East Ave.) is Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest starting around 10:00-ish with with Troy McClure versus Loopus.

Some comedian named "Uncle" Larry Reeb will be at the horrid venue Comix Cafe (3450 Winton Pl.) with Dwight York. Freetime Magazine says Uncle Larry gives humorous helpful "tips". He'll be playing tonight and Sunday at 8:30 and at 8 and 10:45 Friday and Saturday.

Also, tremendous turmoil erupts with Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance at the Auditorium Center (875 Main St E.) starting at 7:30 p.m. Fortunately we only have one weekend to see it.

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

I got an e-mail from someone at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave., near Goodman St.) who said this weekend was Jazz Friday's. This week is Eastman Faculty Jazz Trio with Harold Danko on piano, Jeff Campbell on bass and Rich Thompson on drums. It runs from 6 to 9 and is $5 or free to members.

The Ghost Walk sponsored by the Landmark Society of Western New York wraps-up this week. Same as last week, this popular event (hint: get tickets way early at the Landmark Society for $7, 546-7029, or face waiting forever in line and paying $10 at the door) starts at the Third Presbyterian Church (Meigs St. and East Ave.) every 10 minutes from 7 to 9; this and next Friday and Saturday. Basically, you go from house-to-house and local thesbians tell a tale of Rochester's past.

Aside from that, there is apparently nothing great that I've seen before.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Paulie Rocco Band for $2 at the door starting around 10:30.

The other good bet is Don't Bother the Dog with Ned Pepper at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) starting around 10 or 11.

Finally, if you've got the time and/or tickets, Amanda Ghost will be at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) maybe as early as 8-ish.
