JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #192: Try That Taxation-Without-Representation Stuff Today, Abby

Ok, I'm back to doing the whole update on Wednesday night. Anyway, over the weekend, I set up the insane bike rack on my new chainless bike (which I bought online a few weeks ago) and got the No-Mor Flats solid innertubes in place, put on grease fittings and the fenders, and otherwise got it ready for winter riding ... hopefully.

Hmm ... starting with what happened last week, not all that much. I only went out on Saturday and got to see Isotopes (finally!) over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) along with Mid-Air Collision. The Isotopes do a sort-of instrumental surf-rock, and I got the same impression of Mid-Air as I've had before--that they're really great to watch for a little while, but they're all power and style, but not much substance. Hopefully they'll mature a bit (as if I can talk.) Oh, and before that I went to Drew's birthday up at Ellison Park (Blossom Rd. at Landing Rd.) and I rode my old bike. The party was fun, but the ride was hell ... the way back was practically ALL uphill, and the home-to-home round trip was about 17 miles which I did barefoot because I had sweat-collecting shoes and it was hot out.

Coming up, the neatest bet seems to be the The BuddhaHood MP3 link cruise on Sunday. It's pricey, but if I were to just go out to see them at Milestones (170 East Ave.) pay a $6 cover, two $4 beers, get a $6 sandwich plus tip, and buy a $10 CD, I just break even and have to tolerate that awful place. Not to mention that I'd rather see Low Ton MP3 link at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) and maybe pop over to The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) to see The Razzels MP3 link for a bit. On Thursday I want to see Drums and Tuba because they say they were formed trying to capture the marching band sound in a much smaller group. Spaceheads MP3 link and Fake Brain MP3 link seem pretty neat too. Friday's Dryden show looks interesting, with hand-colored movies from France (presumably from long, long ago when people actually hand-colored movies.) Oh, and of course Clothesline Arts Festival at Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave., near Goodman St.) ... at least this year looks to be temperate and mostly rain-free. As an added bonus I'm taking next Wednesday off from work so I'll probably tool around town on Tuesday too.

  • Barbershop - Ok, this looks like it's pretty funny ... about a guy who sells the barbershop left by his deceased father only to reconsider later.
  • Stealing Harvard - Tom Greene apparently even answers spam e-mail in this one in an attempt to get into Harvard. The plot points are probably wrong, but does anyone care?

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Ballad of Cable Hogue starting at 8. A robbed prospector starts a stagecoach stop at a found oasis but keeps desiring vengeance on his robbers.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight is the unexplainable sound of Drums and Tuba, London's Spaceheads MP3 link and Brooklyn's Fake Brain MP3 link starting around 10:45.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) has The Billy Picture and Luke Dow starting around 10:30. I couldn't find any information really about either band, but I'm suspecting groove rock.

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.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Phantom of the Opera starting at 8. Yet another telling of the famous story ... according to the description from the Eastman House, "the spectacle of his final unmasking remains one of the most frightening moments in movie history." With Philip C. Carli providing live piano accompaniment.

The decent groove-rock/zydeco band Sunny Weather will be at Beale Street Cafe (689 South Ave.) tonight starting around 10.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:45 is a couple rock bands with Billy North Show MP3 link (more likely than not I have the wrong Billy North ... oh well) and ASA The Band.

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
