Weekly Rochester Events #229: Saskatchewan Settled

Thursday, May 29, 2003

Ok, we are definitely back at O'Bagelo's (165 State Street) this Saturday for lunch.

Now that that's out of the way, I thought I'd mention that I'm writing this from the Henrietta New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (2199 E. Henrietta Rd., Suburban Plaza) See, I got this little trailer last winter and registered it, but I need to get it inspected. I dug through all the crap in my house but couldn't find the stupid registration card. So, I decided to go get a replacement registration. I thought it would be short-term quicker to get it in person. So, on Tuesday I went down to New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (2199 E. Henrietta Rd., Suburban Plaza) but the lines were huge ... like probably an hour. I didn't have my computer so I thought I'd just head back.

I'm also looking for CATV distribution amplifiers and such for the in-home system I'm working on so I stopped at Radio Shack to see if they had any. The only things they sell now are overpriced satellite dish boosters, so I tried Target then Best Buy Frustrated, I went home empty handed. I'll have to wait until the end of the week to go to the Rochester Hamfest (which, by the way, is this weekend.)

So on Wednesday I figured I'd just pop out of work and go to the office in Victor. Well, the closest office is in Canandaigua so I thought I'd stop at the mobile office in Highland Park (Reservoir Dr.) on Wednesdays. Well, I underestimated that since it was raining or something that it would take me an extra 20 minutes to get home, so by the time I get there (and step in a big puddle in a downpour) they're already closed ... 3:06 p.m. and they're packing up. I figured, "Fine. I'll just go to Henrietta because I've got the laptop today." So here I am ... #A320, waiting for my number to come up. When I got in they were on A295 or so, and after a half hour they're up to A308. Great. Just another hour or so.

Anyway, like I mentioned, Rochester Hamfest at the The Dome Center (E. Henrietta Rd. and Calkins Rd.) is this weekend. I have a big list of crap to get, but I'm not selling this year. I really seriously thought that it would rain this weekend when they put the advance tickets on sale in March which is why I opted out. I guess it might rain, but it's a pretty good shot.

As for activity, I got practically nothing done. On Tuesday night I did get out to Rochester Visual Studies Workshop (31 Prince St.) to see the noise band show. Nothing too new ... 50% Beam Splitter played very very loud. I thought they were interesting because they were right on the line between noise and non-noise, background and foreground ... I couldn't really get anything from their sound as far as music but I also couldn't let my mind drift either and treat them purely as noise. Next was Pengo who played loud and rumbly ... I didn't think it was one of their best performances. Next was Mystery Brinkman who was one guy who did this atonal grinding ... it was slightly interesting because it made me feel a little angry. Finally was Nautical Almanac who were kinda okay I guess. They do guttaral vocalizations over distorted electronics.

Memorial Day

It's a Whole Lotta Shakin' Happy Hour at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight from 5 to 9.

Checked personally by Jayce Today is the start of the Rochester Hamfest at the The Dome Center (E. Henrietta Rd. and Calkins Rd.) It runs all weekend and is $9 at the gate (or $7.50 if you ordered in advance) for all three days of the weekend. It originated as an event for ham radio operators, but has shifted to also include computer equipment as archaic as the term "ham radio." They added hobbies (mostly radio controlled cars/boats/planes and photography) last year.

Over at Le Club Shock at Analog Shock (674 South Ave.) tonight is Coffee, Paul Flaherty and Chris Corsano, SORRIERO, and Vixo Sound System starting at 8.

SaccharineGarageBand linkMP3 link with Grand National, and Torsos from Space (whom I thought were a cross between heavy metal and groove rock) will be at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.) tonight starting around 8.

For a quick fix of modern rock/covers, see Perfect World at Slammer's Bar and Grill (4650 Dewey Ave.) starting around 9:30.

Over by that new-ish nightclub Rain (360 Monroe Ave.) they'll set up a festival tent for Little FeatMP3 link with the awsome The BuddhaHoodMP3 link, Weize Guise, and Marty Roberts starting around 6.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing A Great Day in Harlem starting at 8. Fifty-seven varieties of jazz musicians were photographed in Harlem in 1958 ... this is the story. Also, The Spitball Story about a couple of jazz's greats.

Today and tomorrow there's a Metro Justice Garage Sale (162 Crossman Terr.) from 9 to 5.

Elefant, Buffalo's decent modern rock band Seneca Laines, and Oceanside will be at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight for Seneca Laines's CD Release Show.

One of the few good groove rock bands, Jacoda will be at Acme Bar & Pizza (495 Monroe Ave.) tonight starting around 9:30.

Tonight at Richmond's (21 Richmond St.) is more groove rock, but I haven't heard these: Cerulean City with O'Shea starting around 10.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the First Annual Victory Brewing Company Beer and Musical Festival with heavy metal from MungBeanDemonMP3 link and SnaggletoothMP3 link theoretically starting at 3:00 p.m. but there might be a bunch of bands starting early.

If you want a fix of modern rock and covers, Slammer's Bar and Grill (4650 Dewey Ave.) is the place to be (for that only) with Perfect World starting around 10.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Helen of Troy starting at this afternoon at 3. You know the story, but this is one of the early widescreen Cinemascope films.

Not ready for mainstream Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) is hosting an Acoustic Open Mic from 8 to 10. For this one, there's no microphones and it's pretty open ended.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Muhammad Ali, the Greatest starting at 8. Interesting documentary because it was shot in 1964 and in 1974, documenting two distinct times in Muhammad Ali's life.

Tonight at The Club at Water Street (204 N. Water St.) is the awsome groove-rock/funk band Mountain Mojo Authority with The NicheMP3 link starting around 10.

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.
