JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #162: Hey Pete, Thanks for the Nutcracker
I guess it's Valentine's Day again ... which, of course, means it's time to hit the online personals again. I kind-of accept that I'm just doing it for selfish reasons--I mean, I don't really belive in true love or unconditional love, and I don't think much of love in general, but I guess I still hold out some kind of hope.
In other news, I'm also working on the video I recorded from The Purrs on February 2. It's way too dark and I'm spending a bit of time on the computer getting it bright enough. I tried making a black-and-white VideoCD but it really looked bad so I gave up on it. This weekend I'll probably try taping the Gaylord show at Mercury on Saturday.
Bah ... I feel like I'm getting sick. Hopefully it's false. Nonetheless, I'm pretty tired and really don't feel like writing more. I think I'll just Nyquil out tonight.
Internet Movie Database
plot summary says it all:
"A law student becomes a lieutenant during World War II, is captured and asked to defend a black prisoner of war falsely accused of murder."
- Some kid needs a heart transplant and his insurance doesn't cover it so his dad takes over the hospital and ... umm ... does it himself, I think.
Return to Never Land
- Nearly 50 years after the original, the kids go on another presumably drug-induced feverish trip with the kid who refused to grow up.
- Yet another homage to the law enforcement workers of the September 11th tragedy.
Singles Night at Food Link
from 5:30 to 7:30 at

Afterward is a social hour just down the street at
(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.
(875 Monroe Ave.)
The Valentine's Day Massacre
members of The Runs,

Drinks by Mary Dawn

I'm still curious to see how jazz plays out at Mercury.

starting around 9:30.
Tonight is--for reasons beyond me--East End Mardi Gras.
(170 East Ave.)

The preferred pick tonight is over at
Water Street Music Hall

the entertaining rock of
Eddie Nebula and the Plague
and the professional punk-rock of
Dead Blue Hand
starting at 9.
Tonight is the start of the play

starting at 7:30.
The show runs until March 9.
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
Hit It or Quit It Night!
The Bug Jar
(219 Monroe Ave.)
starting around 10:45.
The theory is that formerly unknown bands try their hand at a Bug Jar gig but tonight is still TBA.
As of a few months ago,
(16 Gibb Street)
still has open mic poetry downstairs starting around 9:30.
Tonight from 8 to 10 is an interesting "new-material-only"
Open-Mic Comedy Night
(389 Gregory St.)
I think they're making it into a workshop type of environment.
