JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #194: Totally Capital, New Hampshire

Well, it looks like I'm going to try going to Lorraine's Food Factory (777 Culver Rd.) this Saturday (in lieu of O'Bagelo's ... last Saturday of the month, remember?) Last month I tried but it was labor day and they were closed--despite being labor day, I didn't expect that, even though O'Bagelo's was. I don't think anyone tried to go anyhow.

Hmm ... I think this last-week-this-week format is getting a bit stale, but I don't really have anything else. Uhh ... so coming up this week is listed below. Oh, I called Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) and asked about their policies. Apparently, their no reentry policy is mostly because they have an all ages show. I think it's dumb ... but anyway, it isn't tied to whether or not the show is run by the evil, evil ClearChannel.

Oh, I wanted to mention that I bought Adobe Acrobat for Mac because Amazon is offering a rebate until the end of the month. I had it in my head that Acrobat could take scanned images and make them into PDF's that are text-searchable. This product is actually the Adobe Acrobat Capture and it's only available for Windows. D'oh! Anyway, on the rebate: some of the highlights include: $50 off Adobe Acrobat 5.0 for Windows or Mac or ($10 off the upgrade for Windows or Mac.) Likewise, $30 off Adobe PhotoShop Elements 2.0 for Windows, $40 off Easy CD Creator 5.0 Platinum for Windows, $20 off Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, $40 off Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, (or $10 off the Upgrade) $50 off Omnipage Pro 12 Upgrade $10 off SuSE Linux 8.0 Personal or $15 off SuSE Linux 8.0 Professional. Remember that if you buy something from any of the links I'll get a kickback, so if you really hate me, be sure to just browse to Amazon.com directly.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Ed Wood starting at 8. Not a great movie by any standard, but a good one nonetheless ... if you're a fan of cheesy science fiction and horror, it's a good bet.

Tonight is a show titled Monty's Song Circle starting around 8 with Canada's acoustic singer Miranda Stone MP3 link, Jacob Moon and Mary Simon at Monty's Korner (363 East Ave.)

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight is a garage punk night with Reigning Sound with The Agenda and The Priests GarageBand link starting around 8 then followed by DJ's later on.

In what looks like a decent modern rock show at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.) starting around 8 or so is Unsung Zeros GarageBand linkMP3 link with Punchline MP3 link, Murdock GarageBand linkMP3 link and FiveStar Riot MP3 link. Although it's not show sponsored by [the great evil] ClearChannel, it is an all ages show which means they generally won't allow re-entry.

In case you're looking for something new, Montage Grille (50 Chestnut St.) will have Truly Twisted Comedy Festival starting around 9:30. The show has previously included such acts as 5 Drunken Immortals, JT Habersaat, Sal Tavano and Jay Wulff.

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.

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

Today and tomorrow during the day is the Naples Grape Festival all over Naples but mostly on Main St. It's a pretty fun festival, especially if you like grape ... uhh ... grape anything, really.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Amadeus starting at 8. Well, not the 1984 version, but the 2002 Director's Cut which includes 20 minutes of previously cut footage.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is tons of fun with the metal band Kalibas MP3 link with the near-novelty punk band The Sluts starting around 10:30.

Over at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.) is Jennifer Marie MP3 link starting around 9, and on the other side at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) is Nobody Cares MP3 link, the Purrs, Adrenokrome GarageBand linkMP3 link and Chizel.

This afternoon at 4 is a free concert at Eastman Theatre (60 Gibbs St.) featuring about 20 of Rochester's opera and choral groups. I got to see the music for the piece the Rochester Opera Factory will be performing (a selection from Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni ... the opening chorus, I think) which looked wildly complex.

Way out at Ontario Midland Railroad (48 Belden Ave.) is a Fall Foliage Express Rail Excursion at 11:30 a.m. and again at 2:15 p.m.

Not ready for mainstream Open Jar Jam at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight and every Sunday.

Just like on Thursdays, you can see/do/avoid Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) starting around 9.

Karaoke with Sugar Bear is back at The Blue Room (293 Alexander St.)

There's apparently a Spoken Word Open Mic Poetry Night at Pythodd Jazz Room at the Heritage House (130 Spring St.) from around 6 to around 10. It used to be on Thursdays but I guess they moved it.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is The Holy Ghost and Kill Myself on Monday MP3 link starting around 11.

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.
