JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #179: Years of Salisbury Steak

Last Friday I had a little excitement when I killed another animal with my car. This time it was my third bird. The first I killed in flight when it flew under the tire; the second bounced off the windshield, and now this one which didn't fly away when I was coming down Route 96. I was pretty suprised when it didn't get out of the way ... I never saw that before. I feel bad 'cause I could have stopped but I was certain it would fly away. I got a squirrel last winter but I didn't have much of a choice there--either voluntary run four cars off an icy road or hit the squirrel.

On Saturday I played "Rochester Tour Guide" for Sam (Sondra's friend) Sondra, and Anne. We went from California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) to the laser show at The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) to Charlotte Beach (but Abbot's had just closed ... for all the dairy we have around it sure is hard to find ice cream.) Then it was around the corner to Silk O'Loughlin's (5980 St. Paul Blvd.) and then back to Mex (295 Alexander St.) and finally to Mark's Texas Hots (487 Monroe Ave.) for plates. That sure was one killer eight hours.

Midway through the evening, we picked up a wedding album from someones trash pile. At The Centers, we decided to start filling in the missing information in the album. Around the time we got to Silk O'Laughlin's, Sam decided to start writing on the photo pages -- basically writing the story of the wedding. We wrapped up the story around the time we were at Mex. We also got several people to sign the guestbook. Sam said she'd "liberate" the album somewhere along the way home. We finally decided she'd take it back to Oregon and set it free up there.

As for this weekend, there's the in-store show at Fantastic Records, then the East End Fest, then the show at Mercury. That's basically it ... as far as nights go.

  • The Bourne Identity - Why, that would be the name of a stream, Bob.
  • Scooby Doo - According to reviews, Matthew Lillard does an incredible job playing Shaggy, Linda Cardellini brings life to the challenging character of Velma and Scott Innes gives a voice to the titular character. There's a couple actors playing Daphne and Fred, but they're just minor characters in the show.
  • Windtalkers - The army developed an unbreakable code passing wind.

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.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight is some heavy metal -- Anodyne with Kalibas and The Dream Is Dead starting around 10:45.

Tonight starting around 7 is the first East End Fest (East Ave., near Scio and Richmond St. near Main) of the year. Of modest note is the fun disco cover band, United Booty Foundation playing at the Aria (120 East Ave.) stage from 7:30 to 11. The decent modern rock band Uncle Plum GarageBand link will be at Milestones (170 East Ave.) from 9 to 11. Remember that the whole thing is free so you get what you pay for.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Tingler with 13 Ghosts starting at 8. Ok, so they don't have all the seats wired so you really won't experience the tingling ... but they will have the ghost viewing glasses for the faint of heart.

Fantastic Records (3400 Monroe Ave.) is having an in-store performance with the fun teen ska of The Goonies MP3 link and The Lightbulbs starting around 5.

Whatever Swampass is, it'll be at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight starting around 8.

Over at Mercury Star Lounge (171 St. Paul, formerly Red) is one of the best local punk-rock bands, Dead Blue Hand, El Destructo and The Atomic Swindlers GarageBand linkMP3 link starting around 11.

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.

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

The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) will be hosting the first performance of The Grinders in a while along with the decent punk-rock of The Priests GarageBand link, The Dollywatchers and Hangmen tonight starting around 10:45.

Ok, over at Mercury Star Lounge (171 St. Paul, formerly Red) is an American Cancer Society Benefit Show with the modern rock band Veluxe, Middle Ground, Speakeasy GarageBand link, Sound Byte Society and Bit Part starting around 10. I have a feeling none of the bands will blow me away, but it might make a little money for a good cause.
