JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #157: End of the Line for Terminus

I finally got my own copy of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension on DVD and watched most of it. There's a bunch of extras on it ... I've only made it through the original movie, the original intro, deleted scenes, and the running commentary. I've yet to turn on Pinky Carruther's Unknown Facts subtitle track and go through a couple more things. Well worth $15.

I spent most of the last week ill. I did manage to go out on Saturday, though, and see the David Bowie birthday thing at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) which was a lot of fun. Aside from that ... umm ... after I got better earlier this week I rode my bike through the snow to the comedy show at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) on Tuesday. The show itself was all right ... the interesting part was riding through the snow. In the end, I went out afterward and stayed out late then couldn't sleep again. Ugh ... Wednesday was rough on a couple hours of sleep.

Around town this weekend, I guess they're building some big pile of snow on Broad Street. It's supposedly part of this "coldrush" thing supposedly sponsored by the Greater Rochester Visitor Association. Unfortunately their website doesn't mention the big pile of snow promotion.

  • Brotherhood of the Wolf - In the 18th century, a monster beast thing terrorizes France.
  • Orange County - It's kind-of like The Odd Couple with a couple of teenage brothers. Comedy ensues.

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 the new-to-me Antigone Rising and Mofos starting around 10:45.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) it's Bitpart with Hawg starting around 10:30.

At The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St., formerly Piranha) is Groove Night with Brothers N Green and Meghan Taylor's other new band Bee Eater starting ... umm ... around 10 or so.

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.

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.

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.
