JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #112. Great Bulb, Tom

Let's see ... I went out and had a wild-ish weekend last week. I saw this weird experimental music at Piranha(204 N. Water St.)on Friday night. It was the first time I'd been there and boy is it wild. Well, at least the layout lends itself to being wild. The people and activities seemed pretty tame. I assume the night owls are kinda strange. Anyway, on Saturday I saw this show atThe Bug Jar(219 Monroe Ave.)with White Cotton Panties (well, at least Meghan and Steve were there with a guest appearance by Marianne and will-play-for-anything Rob on drums and this guy Dan or Dave on bass) The Grinders and Kitty in the Tree from New York. There were a couple guys there supposedly making a movie about garage bands and they took some footage of The Grinders. Well, as you can see, I took some footage of them taking some footage. Rumor has it the film is being made to be submitted at Sundance. We'll see.

In other less exciting but nonetheless cool news, The Lone Gunmen,the spinoff of the nerdy guys from The X-Files premieres this week. Hopefully Jan will begenerous enough to allow us to ransack his place once again for that.

  • The Mexican -A cursed antique gun haunts a hitman played by Brad Pitt.
  • See Spot Run -A mailman matches wits with a crime dog in the witness relocation program. If you're on theedge trying to decide whether to kill yourself or not, this could be just what it takes topush you over the edge! Consider the society that would allow such a movie to be made. Hey, I'm feeling bad already ... why waste the eight bucks?

Checked personally by JayceDinner as always atCalifornia Rollin'atVillage Gate Square(274 N. Goodman St.)This week's specials, straight from the mailing list's mouth are:
  • SHRIMP & FRIENDS ROLL - consisting of spicy tuna & tempura shrimp w/avocado.
  • PICASSO ROLL - consisting of salmon, pesto & artichoke
  • NEW ORLEANS ROLL - consisting of crawdads, garlic, avocado & hot sauce
It may be a bit more crowded that usual as those observing Lent might want to chew on some fishies. To counter, tonight is also First Fridays at The MAG so it might not be too crowded after all.

Once again it'sFirst Friday'sat theMemorial Art Gallery(500 University Ave., near Goodman St.)from 5 to 8 p.m. It has been $5 to get in.

Better late than never is theEast End Mardi Gras Festivalstarting at 6 featuring bars likeMilestones(170 East Ave)Richmond's(21 Richmond St.)Spot Coffee(East Ave. and Mathews St.)andSalinger's Bar & Grill(107 East Ave.)There will be a bunch of bands likeUncle Plum,Ned Pepper,Cajun Redline,Roger Eckers Band,Me and the Bayou Boys, and N'Awlins Al and the Mix.Ok, well that's actually all the bands listed in Freetime Magazinefor the event, but hey, that'd be alright.

This is very odd to mention ...The all-girl 60's-sounding band It's My Partywill be playing atTurning Pointe School of Dance(1260 Ridge Rd., Ontario, NY)from 7 to 9:30. They play some of their own songs and some songs from the '50's and '60's.Oh yeah, it's odd to mention because one of the singers, Aubrey, is the daughter of Rick from Kodak. She's the one on the left on the album cover of their CD,Can I Get to Know You Better?,available at Amazon. I'm getting too old for this sh...stuff.

Checked personally by JayceThe Dryden TheateratGeorge Eastman House(900 East Ave.)will be showingThe Lifestyle starting at 8.It's a documentary about the life of swingers in the 90's.

The Earthtoneswill be atBarrister's(36 West Main St.)tonight from 5 to 8. I saw The Earthtones last Saturday and they were pretty good. Theyplay '60's and '70's acoustic rock like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles.

When approaching an entrance ramp to a highway, how do Rochester drivers handle a vehicle entering the highway?

Yield to the vehicle like the law says.
Stay in the right lane and match speeds.
Stay in the right lane, ignore the oncoming car assuming if you don't see it, it can't hurt you.
Change from the left lane to the right lane to block.
Hit vehicle in side so it spins out like the maneuver you saw on Cops!
Hit vehicle in side so it spins out like you saw on Speed Racer.
Let me put in my idea:...
