JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #119: Naturally, Charles Was Selected

Ok, so only 8 months late, but hey -- at least the Denver Trip journal/book report is up, so gather up all yer kin and settle in close to bask in the warm glow of this tale. Hopefully this will also pacify your need for photographic stimulus.

On the home front, since Tom and Dani are moving on Saturday, I'll be going to O'Bagelo's on Sunday instead. The rest of you can go whenever you want, but as you know, it's much much better when I'm there. At least that's been my experience.

Other changes on the page are afoot here including the absence of a link of the week. I got nothin', or rather, I've had nothin', but I kept putting stuff up anyway. Also, the TV listings on Sunday are gone and the California Rollin' Friday dinner thing just has a link to the rolls. No sense duplicating information from other sources (except for the entirety of the page, of course.) Remaining changes will become more and more obvious.

Finally, the news. Mississippi let the citizens vote on their state flag, and when the count was tallied on April 18, 65% voted to keep the old flag with the Confederate symbol boldly emblazoned on it. In a related story, the license plates will retain the "Proudly 61% White" slogan. Well, at least they're out in the open about it -- unlike Cincinnati or any other place in America, but that's another story entirely.

  • Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles - Crocodile Dundee: 1986, 'Crocodile' Dundee II: 1988, Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles: 2001. Therefore, Crocodile Dundee 4 should be in 2090, so we have nothing further to worry about (thanks for the tip, Leonardo.) However, remember that Mick was the ultimate boyscout, which could make for a somewhat amusing movie. However, my hat will be cliché again so don't go.
  • Freddy Got Fingered - Tom Green plays a cartoonist who moves back in with his parents. Note that this is very different from his television show where he is a cable access star who harasses his parents for fun and profit.
  • The Low Down - Get this -- it's a movie about relationships. How quaint!

Sort of organized by theme just like last week.

Possibly tonight's best bet is Vitamin Wonka at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave) starting around 10:30. I saw them a few weeks ago at Acme and they were pretty good. They have a medium groove-rock sound.

The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) has not been sitting idly by watching the music scene go by, so although I haven't heard of the bands, it could be a good thing to see. Jeep, 2 Man Advantage, Lefty's Deceiver and Sneaky Dragons will be there starting around 10:30.

Tonight and at assorted other times during the weekend is Lance Mantalto with the great local-ish comic Jamie Lissow and the king of the stale joke Ralph Tetta at the scarcely tolerable Comix Cafe (3450 Winton Pl.) They'll be there tonight at 8:30 and all weekend in the evening.

I'm attempting to get out to more new things, and I might check out the Open Mic at Memory 547 Lane (547 State St.) from 8 to midnight.

Checked personally by Jayce If you're not trying to kill me, I might be having dinner at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) Check out the Fish Mail for the special rolls this week.

It looks to be a very slow night, except that They Might Be Giants will be at RIT (One Lomb Memorial Dr.) tonight starting at 8. Of course, being an Alumnus, the first I got wind of it was in this week's Freetime Magazine. Thanks a bunch.

Tonight is the first night of The Memory of Water at Shipping Dock Theater (151 St. Paul St.) at 8 and other times throughout the weekend. The play is a comedy about three sisters reunited at their mother's funeral. It runs through May 12.

As a public service announcement, everyone should avoid Geneva and the immediate vicinity today as Carrot Top will be performing at Smith Opera House (82 Seneca St., Geneva) tonight. Can you believe it's $26.50?

Checked personally by Jayce Ok, just go to The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight. At 6 is an Eastman Show then at 9 is Garage Pop #13 with The Quitters, The Grinders, The Veins, Jen Santoro, The Thundergods, The Priests and The Purrs.

Also, Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave) will have The Nod, Visionstain and Pengo starting around 10:30.

I'm quite surprised to see that 5Head with The Motives will be playing at Milestones (170 East Ave) tonight around 10. I've talked to a couple of the guys in 5Head and they weren't even sure the band was still around as of a few months ago. Apparently they're still kicking.

If you gotta the tickets, you can see the good Boston rock band Guster at Auditorium Center (875 Main St E.) at 8.

Trivia Quiz continues at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.) I've been going for a few weeks now and maybe we'll win sometime. We've been within a couple questions of winning, but so has everyone else.

If you're up for it, Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) will have a DJ playing Barenaked Ladies tunes.
