JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #106: Rockin' Capital Land

While I was at work I was doodling a little and it seemed I wanted to draw symbols so I focused a little and came up with "2ScR87." It looked like a legal citation and a quick search of the Internet revealed "SCR" was the acronym for the Supreme Court of Canada. 1SCR87 refers to a case about child custody, and 2SCR287 refers to whether computer-generated bank statements are admissible. I thought that was kind-of a dead end so I just thought maybe a street name nearby started with "Scr" so I looked it up in StreetAtlas. It turns out there is a Scr Ln. in Fairport. After work I stopped by there and the lot was basically wild except for a gazebo. I didn't get out and check it out.

I haven't had a chance to read all Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speeches and letters from last week's survey so I kept it for at least another week. It looks like nobody else got a chance either. Just like last week, review Dr. King's speeches through the links to the Afro-American Almanac in the survey to the right and pick what you feel is his most inspirational work.

Checked personally by Jayce Yesterday [big help, Jayce] and today, Nuts and Bolts Comedy Improv will be holding auditions for their troupe. Call them at 244-2681 and leave a message for details on the time and location.

Krypton-88 with The Blind Pharaohs will be at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) tonight starting around 10:30. At some point there's a show coming up where the Krown will be charging a cover on Thursday but I can't remember when. This might be it, so be prepared.

The WBER-sponsored appearance of Insane Clown Posse with Marz and Insolence will be at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) at 7:30 p.m.

Checked personally by Jayce More interesting to me is the Acoustic Showdown with Luann of Velocity Mirror, Joff of The Earthlings, Todd of Falling 12 Stories, Andy Schmitts of Bughouse and Randall at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) They're all in (or were in) local non-acoustic bands but will be doing some acoustic stuff on their own tonight.

Finally, Milestones (170 East Ave.) is once again hosting Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest starting around 10:00-ish with with Don't Bother the Dog versus Average Otis.

Salsa Lessons continue at Tapas One Seventy Seven (177 Saint Paul St.) tonight at 9.

  • LARAMIE PROJECT Roll - consisting of smoked scallops, pesto and onion


Gaylord with Edge of Jupiter and The Niche will be at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) starting at 9 for an all-ages show.

Checked personally by Jayce Nextstage at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.) is hosting their fourth annual Hibernatus Interruptus: A Winter Festival of New Plays all this weekend. All the performances are free, but you should call 232-GEVA for tickets or reserve on-line. Tonight at 7:30 p.m. and tomorrow at noon at is a free performance of Someplace Soft To Fall by S.M. Shephard-Massat. NextStage describes it as:
Family matriarch, Beverly Ann, has seen her way through a lifetime full of love and loss. In the winter of her life she realizes that in order to be forgiven, she must forgive -- and hardest of all is forgiving oneself. A powerful, gutsy work.

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

Checked personally by Jayce Today at 4 p.m. and tomorrow at 4 p.m. at Nextstage at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.) is a free performance of The Spirit House by Adam Kraar. NextStage describes it as:
An American diplomat's family in Thailand in 1965 discovers the magic -- and danger -- of being innocents in an exotic land. This lyrical drama about a family's loss of Eden is set against the backdrop of the escalating conflict in Vietnam.
Also, tonight at 8 p.m. and tomorrow at noon, Nextstage will have a free performance of Garuda's Wing by Naomi Iizuka. NextStage describes it as:
A lush and mysterious work set in the remote jungles of Indonesia. A young forensic pathologist investigates the origins of unidentified bones, and in the process begins to piece together not only the identity of the victim, but the identity of the murderer, and the motive behind a crime that occurred years before.
Don't forget that Someplace Soft To Fall will be played at noon.

Checked personally by Jayce The good cover band Better Days will be at Fat Moe's (4419 Dewey Ave.)

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is The Hi-Risers starting around 10:30. Saturdays are cover charge night, so keep that in mind.

Checked personally by Jayce What looks to be pretty interesting is Carbon Records CDR.Show at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting at 10. Basically, there are 10 or so performers who get their names drawn from a hat to play any of 20 or so instruments for about 5 minutes of improvisational jamming. Radio Shock from Brooklyn will be opening and DJ Detox (John Schoen) will be preventing the awkward silences. I gather they record the set and plop it onto a CD-R as they mention their eighth release in four months of their CDR.Series. You can take your best bet at the JPEG advertisement on their home page, but it looks to me like appearances by members of Nod, Coffee, Pengo, Finkbeiner, Hilkka, and Sheet with Andy Gilmore, Chad Oliveiri and more.

Also, Don't Bother the Dog and U.S. Falls will be at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) tonight starting around 10.

Checked personally by Jayce I checked with Alan and he said they weren't paying to have the Krown Kryers play at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) However, it's now more of a true open jam in that anyone is welcome to come by and play. They go as far as putting the microphone out on stage. Everything else is up to whoever shows up.

Downstairs at Java's (16 Gibb Street) starting around 9:30 is open mic poetry.
