JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #171: That's One Unpopular Car, Clement

Dang ... it's late on Wednesday (well, I want to do other stuff tonight and I really want to be done with the website.)

Just so I wasn't totally lying, I actually went to Trivia Quiz at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.) this week. Only one other guy I knew was there so we joined one of the winning teams. They really weren't much fun ... they were way too serious about winning. The only excitement I had was that I won a "beer question"--you yell out the answer and win a beer. It was one of the "who or what am I" things where they give clues as to the identity of someone or some thing. As soon as they said, "I am 145 feet tall," I yelled out "Statue of Liberty" and won myself a beer. How very exciting, eh?

On Saturday I went around town and eventually settled at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) to see QUiTTERS, The Shams and Dan Melchoir's Broke Revue. All of them were really good. When I left around 2:30, there was fog covering some of the buildings downtown. I went to Wegmans to get black-and-white film but I couldn't get to it behind the gate in the Video Department so I went to CVS and bought it there instead. I spent the evening taking pictures of the fog around town ... until about 4 when I went home and crashed.

  • Murder by Numbers - Nothing like using the power of math to commit the perfect murder.
  • The Scorpion King - Dwayne Johnson stars as some guy who fights to free some chick from some other guy.
  • Lucky Break - Some prisoners stage a play to cover their great escape. Comedy ensues.
  • Joshua - Could it be ... oh, I don't know ... Jesus?

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.

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.

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

Tonight from 8 to 10 at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) is the new-to-me folk-ish singer Maria Gillard with the Alaskan, odd, political, generally left-wing folk singer Ethan Daniel Davidson The last time I saw him, I got some of his CD's but then he mailed a couple more to me later in the year in plain wrapping--shortly after the anthrax scare--so it took me a while to figure out who he was again before I realized it was probably okay to open the package.

Meddling Kids will be at Acme Bar & Pizza (495 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:15. I missed them in the past when they played at Tremors because, well, it's Tremors. I hear the band-side is okay, though.

In their last show with their guitarist Carl, Eddie Nebula and the Plague, The Realistics and Veluxe will be at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:45.

Over at Monty's Korner (363 East Ave.) is the new-to-me Arc with Karen Kosowski starting around 9:30.

At the other Monty's-- Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) The John Doe, Get Set For Life and Resiliance will be playing starting around 10:30.

Over at Mercury (171 St. Paul, formerly Red) is The Flour City Knuckleheads, Dead Blue Hand and The Razzles starting around 11.

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.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Popeye starting at 8. Robin Williams (prior to his make-everyone-cry days) plays the famous sailorman.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is the out-of-town Tomorrow's Caveman with the eternally local McFadden's Parachute starting around 10:45. In case you do listen, it is indeed part of the A Whole Lotta Shakin show at WITR.

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.
