JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #158: Spears of Yoonerisms

Well I decided to stop drinking for a while. Not for good, just for a while ... maybe a month or something. I don't know. I'll wait a bit until I think my liver has shrunk three sizes or so ... or maybe until I lose some extra weight. Then again, maybe I just wanted to go for a wagon ride.

Anyway, in case you missed it, last weekend was the kickoff of that coldrush promotion sponsored by Greater Rochester Visitor Association. We had to truck in snow from Buffalo to make a ski slope on Broad Street which made some minor stirring in national news. Unfortunately we didn't quite make it to The Daily Show on Comedy Central because our beloved president had to choke on a pretzel this weekend.

One last little thing. I stumbled on an interesting photojournalism site titled Photo District News 20th Anniversary which is a bunch of really quite provocative images from recent history.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Hidden Fortress starting at 8. This is the Japanese movie that is often cited as the inspiration for Star Wars.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) it's the new-to-me The High Strung with the new-to-me Teenage Piss Party starting around 10:45.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the seemingly bad idea Monty's Monster Open Jam featuring Ned Pepper and their friends 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.

Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) is hosting an Acoustic Open Jam from 8 to 10. For this one, there's no microphones and it's designed to be more of a true jam.

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.

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.
