JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #140: Gantt Start

I guess I have a topic for the editorial this morning. You've all seen the pictures and probably watched the disaster live on Tuesday like I did. I didn't know anybody down there, but I keep getting hit with waves of mourning and fear and anger. But I won't let these terrorists win. I will continue to go to work and do my job, I refuse to live in fear, and I will do what I can to help.

So I thought I'd use this spot to talk about some of the things you can do:

Oh, and unless I hear something official, I will continue to hang my flag at half-staff, probably until next Tuesday.

... and too bad to those who wanted otherwise: you're getting a silly survey this week too.

Tonight is Singles Night at Food Link from 5:30 to 7:30 at Foodlink (936 Exchange St .) Afterward is a social hour just down the street at Nathaniels (251 Exchange Blvd.) FoodLink redistributes food from stores that is not saleable and redistributes it to soup kitchens. The event is sponsored by Single Volunteers of Rochester which accounts for the "Single" part of the title. They're a group that is all single people and performs volunteer activities around Rochester. If you're interested, sign up at the website and join the event.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) it's Bottom with Yakuza starting around 10:45.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Nod and The Phi-Phenomena Tour starting around 10:30.

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.

In what looks to be a quiet night, check out on the Roof Deck of The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race.) For maximum amusement, there shouldn't be all that many people there and the band should be completely drunk around 12:30 in the morning. I doubt it'll happen with these guys, though.

Mexican Independence Day

Checked personally by Jayce This is the last day of the In Praise of Nature: Ansel Adams and Photographers of the American West exhibit at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) If you haven't seen it and want to, well, it's time to get your butt in gear.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Freaks starting at 8. In the days before the movie code, Tod Browning created this, well, freak-show of a movie.

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

Tonight at Monty's Korner (363 East Ave.) will have Ronley Teper and Karen Kosowski with Luanne Arena (who also plays in Velocity Mirror GarageBand link) and Joanne Mcnaney starting around 9:30 or so.

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.

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.

Checked personally by Jayce I don't have the new album, but David Byrne will be at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) tonight at 8. I think the show is sold out so if you don't have tickets, you'll have to cry really loud for me to hear you from inside. If you really want to buy or listen to his new stuff, check out his page at Amazon.com.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Fellini's Casanova starting at 8. I'm kind of luke-warm on seeing Federico Fellini's rendition of machoism and masculinity in a quasi-fantasy world revolving around those themes ... plus I'll be doing other things.

Weekly karaoke contest with Sugar Bear, at Comix Cafe (3450 Winton Pl.)

Checked personally by Jayce Not ready for mainstream Tonight at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) is Open Mic Night (for music) from 7 to 10.
