JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #103: Larry and the End of the Actinides

Ok, so what did you get? Shout outs go to Rob, Matt, Mike, Tina and Jan for their Amazon gifts from the wish list. They're on the good list and will receive ... rewards. Too bad if you haven't been personally recognized. Anyway, ask on Saturday and I'll let you know about all my new beautiful toys.

Hey, did you see that Circuit City commercial where the guys are playing video games in the store and there's a woman outside with a bullhorn calling to one of them? Did anyone else think it was funny they were using the sound effects from the Atari 2600 version of PacMan? I didn't think so. :-)

Checked personally by Jayce O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon. Steve said John said they were open this weekend too.

Checked personally by Jayce Eddie Nebula and the Plague with The Sluts will be at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:30. There's a $2 cover. For those of you into some rock with a punk slant, this is probably worth it.

Also, The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is having Garage Pop 12 with The Quitters, The Grinders, The Hi-Risers, The Priests, Paulie Rocco and The Single Whips. I'm betting it'll start early around 8 or 9.

Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) has Doctor Pocket starting around 10.

New Year's Eve

Tonight at the The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is their New Year's Eve Party with Frantic Frank and the Flattops, White Cotton Panties (which is most likely Meghan Taylor from White Cotton Panties as the posters have been saying), The Veins and The Thundergods.

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

As if anyone will be watching ...
  • Futurama : Lesser of Two Evils - The Professor hires a Bender look-alike to guard a jeweled tiara for the Miss Universe contest, but it disappears.
  • King of the Hill : Naked Ambition - After Bobby accidentally sees Luanne naked, his friend Joseph convinces Bobby to help him spy on her.
  • Simpsons : Behind the Laughter - A profile of the Simpsons a la "Behind the Music," including how Willie Nelson reunited them after their breakup.
