Weekly Rochester Events #220: No, No ... The One in New York

Thursday, March 27, 2003

Well I've been pondering this ever since I found out about them, but now I've actually got a JayceLand Store at CafePress. So far you can only buy overpriced crap with the JayceLand logo on it, but in the future, I hope to add overpriced crap with funny things on them. I forgot to on Wednesday but forgot to get hold of a lawyer to set this up as a business as I think it'll make tons of money so I should have some sort of protection in case some loon tries to sue me because they think I'm actually right.

Oh yeah, and for lunch on Saturday, I guess it'll be ... umm ... I don't know. How about MacGregor's (381 Gregory St.) around the corner from Jan's house. Nothing surprising or exciting, except maybe for their bacon-and-brie burger. Mmmmm ... burger. (Too bad they don't always have brie, but that early on Saturday they should.) That, and like 80 beers on tap if you're up for that.

Last week I went to St. Anne Church (1600 Mt. Hope Ave.) to see about the plans for the Wegmans (1411 Mt. Hope Ave.) store. It actually looks pretty cool. They're planning on expanding into the rest of the building they're in which should increase the size of the store by about half again. The aisles will be wider, they'll landscape the parking lot, and make it a bit more pedestrian friendly. Best of all they'll add sushi, a café, and an organic food section. It looks like I might be able to ditch "Las Vegas" Wegmans down in Pittsford and just shop up here.

This weekend looks to be pretty cool. Astronomical UnitGarageBand link and The BuddhaHoodMP3 link look like a great show on Thursday ... so does Annie Quick, actually, and hopefully it'll start on time. Low TonMP3 link on Friday and The Flour City KnuckleheadsGarageBand link on Saturday will round things out pretty nicely.

  • Open Hearts (at The Little) - When your lover is badly injured in an accident, what do you do?
  • Ararat (at The Little) - Apparently about the American holocaust from 1915 to 1918. Unfortunately 15 minutes of Google searching and I still don't know what the hell that is.
  • Basic - A soldier violates the Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code and their mission goes awry.
  • The Core - You have got to be fucking kidding. There's way too much disbelief to be suspended in this train wreck of a movie.
  • Head of State - Look at the real world today and tell me whether you've got to suspend more disbelief that we could have a black president in the next fifty years or all the crap in The Core ...

Checked personally by Jayce Ok, so the best funk-and-rock band in Rochester, Astronomical UnitGarageBand link will open for the best percussion-based groove rock band, The BuddhaHoodMP3 link tonight over at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.) starting around 9:30. I don't usually push shows, but there are only two bands in town who compel me to actually get my butt moving to the music and these are them. While the aforementioned butt moving is not something that should be witnessed by any human being, the aforementioned pairing of the coolest bands around is.

Over at Monty's Korner (363 East Ave.) is another Can-Am Songwriter's Circle with Mary Simon, Luke Allen, Dee Adams, and Steve Roth starting around 9.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is a last-minute fill-in show with Annie Quick with rock-and-roll from Seven Head DivisionMP3 link starting around 8:30 (hopefully I can rely on Bobby's promise to start these things on time ...)

If none of this stuff floats your boat, you can always head over to the Spurrier Dance Studio at University of Rochester (River Campus Map) is a Discussion And Demonstration with Master Hat Maker Dave Brown starting around 7:30.

The insane (literally) Wesley Willis and Angry Adam will be at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight starting around 8:30.

If you want to get really drunk and rock really hard, go see Low TonMP3 link with The Grinders starting around 10 at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.)

If modern rock and covers float your boat, check out Perfect World at Norton's Pub (1730 Goodman St.) probably starting around 10 or so.

It looks like Estrofest is back at School of the Arts (45 Prince St.) tonight starting around 8. I was told I should go see this sometime, but for $15, I can see a lot of entertainment elsewhere.

Lunch today at MacGregor's (381 Gregory St.) right around noon.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Delicatessen starting at 8. Tenants in a dysfunctional apartment building are fed people by a cannibalistic butcher.

Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight is some pretty good rock-and-roll with Thundergods, El Destructo, and Defenbombed starting around 10:30.

Probably better rock, thought, is over at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.) with The Flour City KnuckleheadsGarageBand link for their CD release with Blast-Off's, Fast Food Hard Liquor and Suspect DeviceMP3 link starting around 10:30.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the pretty good Bird Circuit starting around 10:30.

Richmond's (21 Richmond St.) has the pretty good heavy rock of BitpartGarageBand link tonight starting around 10:30.

Every once in a while one of these things come along where I wish I had a girlfriend to make a long drive with on a nice Sunday morning ... way out at Rochester Museum & Science Center Cumming Nature Center (6472 Gulick Rd., Naples) is Maple Sugaring Weekend ... pancakes will be served from 9 a.m. to 2, and sugaring demonstrations will happen from 10 to 3.

Tonight at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is the one-weird-guy-band in a mic'ed motorcycle helmet Bob Log III with Bebe and SergeMP3 link(who I guess are insane) and The White Devils starting around 10:30.

April Fool's Day

Over at Verb Café at Writers and Books (740 University Ave.) tonight is April Fools & Wits starting around 7. As they say on their calendar,
Celebrate April Fools Day with our annual tribute to the late, great light verse legend Paul Humphrey. Bring some of your favorite light verse to read. Featured readers include Thom Ward, Bruce Sweet, Genevieve Legacy, and Norm Davis. Hosted by W&BŐs own Wendy Low.


Over at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight is Xiu Xiu, We Regazzi, and Paper LionsMP3 link starting around 10:30.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Model Shop starting at 8. The thing about this film about an exotic model who makes money from "amateur photographers" was that it was shot in L.A. at the height of the Vietnam War.

Wine tasting at Tapas One Seventy Seven (177 Saint Paul St.) from 6 to 8 (since this is a first Tuesday.)

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Ace in the Hole starting at 8. Yet another film about the exploitative nature of journalists ... and a brand new 35mm print to boot.

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, it's now more-or-less a regular open mic ... by default it's still a place to try out new stuff.
