JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #139: Get your mouth away from that trench, Vincent!

Oh, another week another rambling. Just a couple things this week ...

I got my replacement windows to my house from Lowes. I tried putting one in and despite making a couple mistakes, it only took about 2 hours. I figure most of the rest of them will take about that much time--some more, some less. It looks pretty good and so far is better because it lets in less sound than the old windows. I can't wait to get the ones in the bedroom. Also, I moved the security light from the back of the house to the eves which does a better job of lighting and gets me one step closer to my plan of removing all the exterior things hanging off the house so I can get siding. I did a cool thing and ran three wires through the wall--one for power, one for the switched output of the motion sensor, and one for the lights themselves. If I want to I can set up additional lights or sensors. So, despite getting shocked pretty good and taking 12 hours to get the stupid wires run, at least it's cool now.

In a completely different personality, I went to see The Sluts CD Release Party at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) last Saturday. That was a ton of fun. Their new CD, Greatest Hits, has pictures of acid hits on it, so they did a drug theme for the show. They threw out hits of "acid" to everyone, then passed around a big "joint," then sent around a bag of [mu]"shrooms." The 'shrooms were funniest because they apparently tasted like shit so everyone including the band was spitting them out. The show of course was a blast ... so far they've been always fun to see.

Oh yeah, and thanks to all of you who sent me stuff via Amazon or otherwise. Being so old I can't remember who did what so I'll just cover you all. :-)

  • Rock Star - The tagline says it all: "the story of a wannabe who got to be."
  • Soul Survivors - A sexy college-age woman is desired by both the living and the dead.
  • Two Can Play That Game - Girl plays game to get boy back; boy plays game with girl. Comedy ensues.
  • The Musketeer - An "original" twist on the Three Musketeers story.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) it's the new-to-me Section 8 (I've heard of them at least) with the new-to-me Champions of the Universe starting around 10:30.

Blink Spot Trio and Hearing from the Gap will play around 10:45 at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.)

Tonight is another of Freetime Magazine's Rochester's Most Popular Band Contest with Cactus Jack versus Junction 5 starting around 9:30 at the intolerable Milestones (170 East Ave.) The doors open at 9 and and close around 12:30.

If worse comes to worse you can always see, hear, and/or otherwise participate in Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) starting around 10:30.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Docks of New York starting at 8. See it for the expert cinematography in a silent film at the end of that era. The plot is simple (a dock worker saves a woman from attempting suicide, marries her and takes her for granted then grows to know her) but the use of modern cinematic techniques really shine. This one's $8 for the public and $6 for members and includes live piano by Philip C. Carli.

Checked personally by Jayce I tried a couple places the last few weeks, but tonight I'll give California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) another shot tonight. Check out the Fish Mail for the special rolls this week.

Checked personally by Jayce O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

Checked personally by Jayce Today is the first of two days of the 45th Clothesline Festival at Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave., near Goodman St.) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days, rain or shine. Admission is $5 and includes gallery admission. This is what I believe to be Rochester's closest thing to a real art festival. Although most of it is the same old crafts, there are a fair number of expressive artists with the guts to sit through 12 hours waiting for someone to buy something that won't necessarily be beautiful in a traditional sense.

Checked personally by Jayce The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) will be having their Garage Pop 14 show tonight starting around 10 (although the ads claim "9pm sharp.") The performers are The Legendary Thundergods (from Toronto) the punk band The Priests, El Destructo, Buffalo's The Bloody Hollies, and the insane ... uhh ... sounds of Rockstars. Although the Garage Pop shows are getting a bit stale as a concept, they're still pretty fun to go see. Oh yeah, and early calendars reported that Hellen Killer would be there but they're now not playing.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the new-to-me Isotope with the excellently eclectic Gaylord starting around 10:30.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Cincinnati Kid starting at 8. Steve McQueen plays an expert poker player who gets into a crooked game.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) it's Eddie Nebula and the Plague's GarageBand link CD Release Party (and we're not talking about that crappy demo either) along with their rock-rockabilly pals Krypton-88 starting around 7 (theoretically.)

Not ready for mainstream Open Jar Jam at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight and every Sunday.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) it's The Flying Luttenbachers with the ultra-metal Kalibas starting at "9:00 p.m. sharp."

Checked personally by Jayce Trivia Quiz continues at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.) I keep going and we still haven't won -- whether we have a few people or a whole bunch.. We've been within a couple questions of winning, but so has everyone else. It all gets started a little after 9.

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

I'm curious why Freetime Magazine lists Disco Biscuits as Groove Rock, but anyone can find out if they go to Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) at 8.

Not ready for mainstream As of a few months ago, Java's (16 Gibb Street) still has open mic poetry downstairs starting around 9:30.

Not ready for mainstream Open Mic Comedy hosted by Dan Liberto (of the The Comedy Company) is tonight at Six Pockets (Ridge Hudson Plaza) starting around 10. The shows have been pretty good in the past.
