JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #166: Hurt Me Until It Feels Good

Ok, so it's Wednesday night and time to start cracking on another exciting update. Of course, there's only a couple people who'll be reading this on Wednesday so it's really not the point. What is, exactly?

Time's up ... meditation hour is over. Anyway, I thought I'd do a "classic" update and not start it at all until the last minute. That's not really true but I would have got the events from Freetime Magazine earlier in the week but didn't get a chance to so here I am. Rushing to get things done. At least I get to sit around on the porch and enjoy the afternoon. Aah ... nothing like March in Rochester.

I finally got around to setting up the whom does Jayce look like survey on DreamTools so anyone who wants their results counted will have to take it again. I also fixed the grammar error in the original phrasing of the question (the query pronoun is objective, duh.) At least I think I did.

Other than that, the weekend wasn't all that exciting so I've got nothing to say about that. Hmm ... what else ... according to Alexa.com as I write this, http://weekly.jayceland.com is the 2,033,941th most visited site on the Internet. While I'm at it, I'm the 7,484th best reviewer on Amazon.com with 105 helpful votes.

  • Ice Age - Computer generated dinosaurs are voiced by famous actors in this demonstration of computer generated graphics.
  • Resident Evil - Based on the video game of the same name. We all know how the video-game-to-movie transition goes, right?
  • Showtime - A couple cops play TV cops with some "T.J. Hooker" jokes jabbed at co-star William Shatner.

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 ska band The Blackouts MP3 link with Mexican Cession and Salt Peter starting around 10:45.

Flying Lessons with the decent rock band Junction 5 will be over 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.

Prior to their later show, FMGreen will be at Fantastic Records (3400 Monroe Ave.) starting around 7.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Mad Songs of Fernanda Hussein starting at 8. This is a possibly interesting film about the effects of the Persian Gulf War in the U.S.

For some unknown reason, the otherwise good bands Meddlin' Kids, FMGreen and Burning Snella will be at Tremors (1509 Scottsville Rd.) I don't know when they start, but I'd wager around 10 or so.

Down at the Wadsworth Auditorium at SUNY Geneseo (Park Ave., Geneseo, NY, campus map) is the sketch comedy of The Second City starting at 8. Call (800)525-2070 for more information.

The Niche MP3 link will be over at Richmond's (21 Richmond St.) starting around 10:30.

Over at the moderately annoying Mercury (171 St. Paul, formerly Red) is Delusional Spell with 40oz Failure MP3 link starting around 11.

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.

Kalibas, Burnt by the Sun, Nora, Fallguy and Seven Stitches will be out for an early show at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting around 4.

This morning and afternoon at the Genesee Country Nature Center (Flint Hill Rd. in Mumford) it's Sap, Syrup and Sugar at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Let's just hope that alliteration includes samples. Same show, same ... uhh ... times tomorrow.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is Kalibas, Burnt by The Sun, Herod and Within starting around 10:45.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Great Escape starting at 8. A classic war film about escape from a German prisoner-of-war camp that is well known as the film that makes tough guys cry.

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

The show not to miss tonight, though, is former White Cotton Panties member Meghan Taylor's rock band Bee Eater with former White Cotton Panties member Luann Arena's rock band Velocity Mirror at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:30.

Saint Patrick's Day

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Macbeth starting at 8. Everyone in movies contemplates making Macbeth at some point; Roman Polanski makes it strangely realistic.

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.)

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.

Wesley Willis and V for Vendetta will be at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:45.

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.
