JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #204: Say, That's a Big Spleen You've Got

Ok, I'm so tough ... on Tuesday I biked out to The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) and got to see SovietMP3 link who were kinda like Depeche Mode only not as tight. The important thing is that I biked through the snow and it was around 15 degrees outside. Ok, so I _was_ really tired afterward, but at least I did it.

What else ... oh yeah. I managed to do the whole Thanksgiving thing. I got up around 6:30, hit the road by 7, got to Schenectady around 10:30, visited with Mom and Dad, drove back from about 2:30 to 6, and started the party around 7:30. Had I known, I would have just called Todd and stayed in Schenectady for the night since he was the only one of the original invitees who showed up. Regardless, my neighbors stopped by and most of us stayed up until about 3:30. If nothing else it was 21 hours with no nap.

Friday and Saturday I went out with Adam and his girlfriend, making the rounds all over town. Boy am I tired. Soooo tired.

I guess not much else to say. I keep meaning to carry around one of those digital recorder thingies so I can remember all the silly ideas I have. The Palm Pilot worked for a while but I think it now takes too much time to open it and start it up. Odd, eh ...

Around 9:30 at Windjammers (4695 Lake Ave.) is a new-to-me swing blues and soul band Billy B. and the Rhythm and Blues All Stars. Ok, so I don't really follow blues, but the lead singer wrote to me and said they'd be playing so I thought I'd put it on the page ... he says they're "pretty damn good" but he's considering moving on.

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.
