JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #178: Gustav Says It All Adds Up To Naught

Ok, so first off ... I'm sick. I generally like summer colds better than winter ones because when it gets really hot with 90% humidity, it feels pretty good. Too bad it otherwise doesn't. So I'm going to use that as my excuse this week for being boring again.

The only thing I want to get to this week is the Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) show on Friday. Now, I'm no fan of the music hall side, but the lineup is just too much fun. I've seen The Blackouts MP3 link, The Sluts and Purrs and they're all a blast to see, and I think I might have seen The Toasters too.

Last Saturday I got a chance to see Meddling Kids again. They're an above-average modern rock band, but heck, it's just modern rock. If you really like that kind of thing, these guys are a good pick to see. I got to The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) as well and have once again missed The Isotopes. I did get to see The Flour City Knuckleheads GarageBand link again who do some really good punk rock and also Purrs who were good but complained a bit too much about being drunk.

Oh yeah ... one other thing: Real Genius gets released on DVD on Tuesday. If you're very excited about it, you'll need to buy it. Unfortunately it looks like there's no additional features other than widescreen. Darn.

In case you're shut in tonight (or tomorrow), check out I'm going to make a drug with my mind on cable public access (channel 15 on Time Warner) at 11:30 p.m. featuring Pisspot the Bunny interviewing local and out-of-town bands.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is Evil Beaver with Cherry Valence starting around 10:45.

Tonight at Nextstage at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.) is Looking Over The President's Shoulder. Their website describes the play as:
Based on the life of Alonzo Fields, Chief Butler at the White House during four presidents’ terms, the one-man show reveals an intimate view of history-in-the-making.  Through masterful storytelling, musical interludes and uncanny impressions, Fields introduces a cavalcade of characters: presidents, prime ministers, monarchs and movie stars, in this fascinating and enormously entertaining play.
The play runs from Tuesday through Friday at 7:30, Saturday at 5 and 9:30 and Sunday at 3.

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.
