JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #190: Fehling's, Nothing More Than Fehling's

Most important to some of you is that O'Bagelo's (165 State Street) is closed. Regardless of that, it's the last Saturday so we would have gone somplace different anyway. This week, let's meet at Lorraine's Food Factory (777 Culver Rd.) at noon on Saturday. See you there. Most important to me is that I'll be 32 on Friday. Okay, maybe not, but it would be nice if you all either bought me something that I want or buy something for yourself through this link so I get store credit or just doneate some cash. Modesty may be nice, but actively soliciting bribes and such can get you more money and stuff.

Let's see ... looks like a fun weekend. First, I took Friday off so I can stay out all night ... well, later than usual anyway. Thursday, I'll get to see Karen Kosowski. On Friday, barring anything more interesting, the show at Montage Grille (50 Chestnut St.) with The VEiNS, Bee Eater and The Grinders. On Saturday night, come hell, high-water, my-best-friend-packing-to-move-hundreds-of-miles-next-week, or my-girlfriend-returning-from-a-week-long-trip, I will go see Jerseyband over at Milestones (170 East Ave.) Although I don't think very many people would like to see them because they do this ... uhh ... music that I've come to call "post-modern jazz" mostly because I know nothing about music and figure that since they have 3 saxophones they must be jazz, but it doesn't sound much like it other than the variety of improvised-sounding pieces. Sunday should be neat too ... It'll be nice to wish Bobby T a happy birthday. I wonder if he's working up his tolerance for Jager shots. Hmm...

Oh yeah, and remember how last weeks "Link-of-the-Week" was SatireWire.com? Well, according to the author of the site, he's calling it quits. Someday that'll happen here, but for now I'll just stick to it. I've already been around longer than SatireWire.com anyway.

Tonight starting around 5 is an auction at the Iola Campus (E. Henrietta Rd.) ... I presume this is the alleged "police auction" which garners things like garden gnomes and $1,200 Caprice Classic wagons.

The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) seems to think that Certainly, Sir will be playing with Suntan MP3 link but Suntan MP3 link seems to think that they will be playing with Red in Rescue and Certainly, Sir's website makes no mention of the show. Regardless, be there around 11 to see whatever will happen happen.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the preferred show with the acoustic rock of Karen Kosowski (possibly this time with her band) and League of Rats starting around 10:30.

Checked personally by Jayce Nuts and Bolts will again be at Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.)

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.

If you've either got the day off or you can get out early, there is a Downtown Rochester Walking Tour at noon and again at 4:45 starting at City Hall (30 Church St.)

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Pink Floyd The Wall starting at 8. Man ... this was 1982? Anyway, I wanted to mention this but probably won't see it because I always fall asleep during it.

Over at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) tonight probably starting around 7 or so is Earl Cram Revue with JoAnn Vaccaro .

Over at the awful Milestones (170 East Ave.) tonight is the popular-for-the-masses supreme talent of Jennifer Marie MP3 link at her CD Release Party starting around 9:30.

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.

In case you're curious, it's Alla Turca at Lola Bistro and Bar (630 Monroe Ave.) tonight and every Friday from 10:30 to 2.

Lunch at Lorraine's Food Factory (777 Culver Rd.) at noon.

The amazing fresh, original "post-modern jazz" of Jerseyband with the charmingly named Bootyjuice MP3 link will be at Milestones (170 East Ave.) starting around 9:30.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Tommy starting at 8. Cult director Ken Russell brings The Who's rock opera to the big screen.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight is Booston's punk rock band Random Road Mother MP3 link with The Benders MP3 link and Shackletons starting around 10:30.

Updated: Oddly, over at Montage Grille (50 Chestnut St.) is The VEiNS with Bee Eater and The Grinders starting around 10. What would ordinarily be a wild show will probably be much more tame. This was going to be on Friday but it got moved to today instead.

Updated: Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is The Boggs starting around 10:30.

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 Open-Mic Comedy Night at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) While once it was a workshop type of environment, the comics now have to force that behavior ... by default it's a place to try out new stuff.

Dan Liberto (of the The Comedy Company) is back with another Open Mic Comedy up at Penny Arcade (4785 Lake Ave.) starting probably around 10:30

Wine tasting at Tapas One Seventy Seven (177 Saint Paul St.) from 6 to 8.

The great acoustic cover soloist John Akers will be at the new Moonshine Barbeque (125 White Spruce Blvd., across from MCC) from 8 to midnight. Too bad they picked up the dreaded Tony Roma's location and are equally non-descript ... maybe they'll be able to pull it off, though.

Weekly karaoke contest with Sugar Bear, at Comix Cafe (3450 Winton Pl.)

Checked personally by Jayce Not ready for mainstream Tonight at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) is Open Mic Night (for music) from 7 to 10.
