JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #164: Victoria: You Go Girl

I was going to write more, but I guess I'll just bring up one thing. There's this Raymour and Flanigan ad campaign that I think just ended. It was their "Monumental Sale" promotion or something which I guess was supposed to be related to 2001: A Space Odyssey because they used something that sounded like the song Also Sprach Zarathustra and they had people falling in slow motion into furniture and they had a big armoire or something at the beginning. There's this one part where a guy is sitting on a loveseat and a woman falls into the seat next to him. The part I thought was so amusing was that when this happens, the guy looks right at the woman's breasts. Not that I necessarily blame him, it's just that it doesn't look all that professional.

  • 40 Days and 40 Nights - Some guy figures he'll get over his break-up by not having sex for a pathetically short 3,456,000 seconds.
  • We Were Soldiers - A bunch of soldiers get caught in certain death, only to behave kindly toward one another.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is The Sunshine Fix, the amazing Velocity Mirror GarageBand link with the ultimately eclectic Suran Song In Stag starting around 10:45.

Junction 5 GarageBand link will be at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) 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.

Over at Mercury (171 St. Paul, formerly Red) is the jazz band Viva Knieval from 8 to 11. I'm still curious to see how jazz plays out at Mercury.

There's apparently a Spoken Word Open Mic Poetry Night at Pythodd Jazz Room at the Heritage House (130 Spring St.) starting around 8 or so.

I've heard stuff on-and-off for the last few months, but I think The Business of Strangers will be playing at The Little (240 East Ave.) tonight.

The all woman comedy Estrofest III will be at School of the Arts (45 Prince St.) tonight and tomorrow at 8. Someday I swear I'll be going to see this.

At 7:30 tonight at Nextstage at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.) is Below the Belt, a humorous play about a trio of coworkers mired in their corporate lives.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Tenant starting at 8. This is the kind of movie Roman Polanski produced to cause him to be stereotyped as a creator of such movies. It's about a guy (played by Polanski) who begins living in an apartment vacated by the suicide of a young woman.

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 Harold and Maude starting at 8. This quirky cult classic curiously steers your brain just a hair. It's essentially about the relationship between a young man who is fascinated with death and an old woman who is fascinated with life.

Cousin Al and the New Generation, El Destructo and The Grinders will be at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:45.

Tonight at Monty's Korner (363 East Ave.) is a benefit for Lollypop Farm with Croonin' Kurt and His Higeared Combo starting around 9.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is The Hirisers starting around 10:30.

Acme Bar & Pizza (495 Monroe Ave.) will have the new-to-me groove rock band Tim Heron Corporation starting around 9:45.

The interestingly named Live Percussion Show with Gary Mitchell will be at the new The French Quarter (The Centers at High Falls) starting around 11.

Over at Mercury (171 St. Paul, formerly Red) starting around 11 is power-modern-rock band Mindstrap (with an awsome lead vocalist, by the way) with the hippie-groove-rock Burning Snella and the modern-rock band Enter Eden starting around 11.

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.)

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.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is the indie rock sounds of Kimone with The Holy Ghost and Hilkka starting around 10:45.

Tonight at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.) is a fun punk-rock show with The Sluts with The Purrs and the new to me Pavers starting around 9.

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.
