JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #153: Women at Seneca Falls

I thought I had some topic this week but I can't remember what it was. I guess it's because I have a cold or something. Maybe that I'm stressed because of Christmas and all the extra crap that goes along with it. Dunno.

In other news, the crackpots at FreePolls screwed up some of their CGI scripts and you couldn't make a new poll correctly. I even tried using an old one and just changing the answers but it was broken. I thought I'd give Dream Tools a shot. I don't know if I'll use them regularly ... part of the charm was the fill-in-your-own-answer bit.

  • Not Another Teen Movie - Reviews have been mixed ... I think if you can tolerate the insipid, it's pretty funny. For everyone else, it's just another shaggy dog joke.
  • Vanilla Sky - Who the heck knows what this is about? I guess it's some storyline about this guy who cheats on and/or dumps his girlfriend who then tries to kill him but he survives then weird things happen in his life. A must see for the insatiably curious, I guess.

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.

I guess this was supposed to start last week but I got some conflicting information. Anyway, Shipping Dock Theater (151 St. Paul St.) will be performing The Santaland Diaries, a humorous play about ... well ... Santaland, I guess. Performances are tonight at 7, tomorrow at 7:30, and Sunday at 2. Tickets are $15.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) it's the punk rockers Ball Cheese Psychotics with their rag-tag fleet of rabid fans starting around 10:30.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) it's the new-to-me Milemaker with Cry Baby Cry starting around 10:45.

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.

I'm surmising that Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) and The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St., formerly Piranha) are in cahoots for a big old battle-of-the-bands. Starting at 5 at Water Street Music Hall is Sloppy Meateaters, Arms Length, The Imports, Murdock and deltaforce 23. Next door at The Club at Water Street the doors will fling open around 7:30 for the battle of the bands with One Year Nothing versus 36 ATP versus Foniks versus Page 13 versus Against the Odds versus Staple Gunther versus The Goonies versus The Best Yet versus Act Your Age versus None Of the Above versus Erratta versus Over The Line versus Just Short Of Nothing versus The Lightbulbs versus Serene. I'm not clear if both shows are $7 in advance and $10 at the door or if you've got to pay for each one (or if you pay once for both, depending on how you read that sentence.) It does get started early, though.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Godfather starting at 8.

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

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Godfather: Part II starting at 8.

The fun rock band The Hi-Risers will be performing with Irving Klaws at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting tonight around 10:45.

O'er at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the okay Deepwaterdaze with Orbit Underground starting around 10:30.

Mr. Burns will be at Acme Bar & Pizza (495 Monroe Ave.) starting around 9:30 or 10 or so. So it's not the Mr. Burns from The Simpson's but rather, some groove-rock band I recon.

Checked personally by Jayce If you ask nice, I bet the people at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will let you eat the gingerbread houses of the Sweet Creations exhibit. It ends today. Be sure to ask first.

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

Just like on Thursdays, you can see/do/avoid Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) starting around 9.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Godfather: Part III starting at 8.

Karaoke with Sugar Bear is back at The Blue Room (293 Alexander St.) One of these days I'll have to stop by to see if it's really true.

Checked personally by Jayce Trivia Quiz continues at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.) My interest is waning, but 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.

Checked personally by Jayce Tonight at Rochester Association of Performing Arts (727 E. Main St.) there will be an Open House from 6 to 8 p.m. If you've ever wanted to start to or get back to performing, this would be a good thing to check out.

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 Tonight from 8 to 10 is an interesting "new-material-only" Open-Mic Comedy Night at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) I think they're making it into a workshop type of environment.
