JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #175: John's Nuts

Well I got a chance to go to the Lilac Festival on Saturday and it was a madhouse. Unfortunately I was not in the mood to be in the midst of massive crowds so I just wanted to get out. I got a chance to go again on Wednesday night and it was not very crowded and all but about 30 vendors had just given up. It looks like the whole festival will be a bust ... stupid weather.

Man, other than that I got nothin'.

  • About a Boy - Hugh Grant is in this one and there's really no indication of what it's about.
  • Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones - Farmers on Tatooine have a tough year as evident by Yoda's stern warning at the end of the trailer: "Begun, this corn war has." ... What? Clone war? What the hell does that mean? Ok ... so I guess it's about clones or something.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Sylvia Scarlett starting at 8. This is the first teaming of Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn where Hepburn plays a cross-dressing jewel thief with Grant as the gender-preference-confused suitor.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is Charalambides, Scrappy Joe, Joe + N starting around 10:45.

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.

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.
