JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #196: Don't Forget to Try the Donuts, Zeb

This past week I got to go see nothing. Well, I got to see a few songs of Jason Lowenstein at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) on Tuesday. He's the lead singer in a solid rock-and-roll band. Nothing particularly new or remarkable ... they were good--just more of the same rock-and-punk stuff. Not to slight them ... I'd check them out again if I saw them in town.

I'm kinda out of it today ... too many movies this week requiring attention. Oh, and one other thing: The City paper is finally online.

  • Brown Sugar - You're basic crappy romantic comedy with black people.
  • Knockaround Guys - Some mob guys play the equivalent of Electric Football.
  • The Rules of Attraction - Uhh ... duh ... be attractive.
  • The Transporter - Some delivery guy is supposed to deliver a mail order bride but decides to open the box instead.
  • Tuck Everlasting - Some girl figures out that Tucks make you immortal ... hmm ... kinda makes it sound like a South Park episode.
  • White Oleander - A flower child goes into foster care because her mom killed some guy with flowers.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Hollywood Boulevard starting at 8. A low-budget and high-camp telling of a starlet trying to make the big time in Hollywood. Plus, the short Let's got to the Movies.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is some DJ spin and jazz of Coffee with Philadelphia's spacey Temple of Bon Matin starting around 8. Don't forget the DJ's later on [a note to myself, really ... I can't seem to ever remember.]

I'm curious what's up with Games Night at Pythodd Jazz Room at the Heritage House (130 Spring St.) starting around 8, but I'm only guessing.

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.

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.

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

As part of the ImageOut closing gala, they'll be showing All the Queen's Men in which Eddie Izzard plays a cross-dresser who is training two more so they can go to Berlin and steal an Enigma machine. Tickets are $25 and include the gala which will be themed as an anything-but-normal-goes 1940's USO-style party.

In a somewhat odd mix, the Tyrones, Edge of Jupiter GarageBand link and Bee Eater will be over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:30.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Staple Gunther GarageBand link, Girlfriend in a Coma and Beligerants starting around 10:30.

The mean-spirited Richmond's (21 Richmond St.) is back at their music game with The Hirisers starting around 10:30.

Way up at Millennium (2235 Empire Blvd.) is the decent modern-rock original-and-cover band Uncle Plum GarageBand linkMP3 link starting around 10.

Fly the flag today.Columbus Day (observed)

In a rare Monday show, The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) will have the metal of Kalibas MP3 link with Disrythmia and perhaps others starting around 10:45.

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 Chicago's art/indie rock band Detachment Kit with L.A.'s couple-of-guitarists Ill Lit and "modern bedroom pop" (whatever that is) +/- (yeah, find their website without using the 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
