JayceLand Pick Tonight's car-crazy double-feature at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) is Race with the Devil at 7 p.m. and then Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry at 8:45. How can you friggin' go wrong: "road icon Peter Fonda stars in a fun pair of the most dynamic action movies from the early '70s. In Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, Susan George and Fonda play the title characters: a kooky hitchhiker and a would-be race driver, who take it on the high-speed lam after ripping off a supermarket. Then, in Race with the Devil, Fonda and Warren Oates play a couple of pals who take their wives on a road trip in a decked-out Winnebago. When the boys witness what looks like a human sacrifice at their campsite, they find themselves fleeing from a widespread cult of Southern Satan worshippers!" Wow.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Diva starting at 8 p.m. and again at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Tiger's Tail starting at 8 p.m. I think the Eastman House Calendar sums things up nicely: "veteran character actor Brendan Gleeson plays Liam O'Leary, a venture capitalist whose world turned upside down when a seemingly malevolent lookalike plots to take Liam's place at his job and at home with Liam's neglected wife (Kim Cattrall)." [source: Dryden Theater calendar] [all ages]

This page is Jason Olshefsky's list of things to do in Rochester, NY and the surrounding region (including nearby towns Irondequoit, Webster, Penfield, Pittsford, Victor, Henrietta, Gates, Chili, Greece, and Charlotte, and occasionally other places in Monroe County and the Western New York region.) It is updated every week with daily listings for entertainment, activities, performances, movies, music, bands, comedy, improv, poetry, storytelling, lectures, discussions, debates, theater, plays, and generally fun things to do. Music events are usually original bands with occasional cover bands and DJ's with musical styles including punk, emo, ska, swing, rock, rock-and-roll, alternative, metal, jazz, blues, noise band, experimental music, folk, acoustic, and "world-beat." Events listed take place during the day, in the evenings, or as part of the city's nightlife as listed. Although I'm reluctant to admit it, it is a Rochester blog and I'm essentially blogging about Rochester events. I also tend to express opinions, review past events, make reviews, speak of philosophy or of a philosophical nature, discuss humanity and creativity. Oh, and it's spelled JayceLand with no space and a capital L, not Jayce Land, Jaycee Land, Jace Land, Jase Land, Joyce Land, Jayce World, Jayceeland, Jaceland, Jaseland, Joyceland, Jayceworld, Jayceeworld, Jaceworld, Jaseworld, nor Joyceworld. (Now if you misspell it in some search engine, you at least get a shot at finding it.) It's also not to be confused with Jake's World or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator. While I'm on the topic of keywords for search engines, this update includes information for Thursday, August 21, 2008 (Thu, Aug 21, 2008, 8/21/2008, or 8/21/08) Friday, August 22, 2008 (Fri, Aug 22, 2008, 8/22/2008, or 8/22/08) Saturday, August 23, 2008 (Sat, Aug 23, 2008, 8/23/2008, or 8/23/08) Sunday, August 24, 2008 (Sun, Aug 24, 2008, 8/24/2008, or 8/24/08) Monday, August 25, 2008 (Mon, Aug 25, 2008, 8/25/2008, or 8/25/08) Tuesday, August 26, 2008 (Tue, Aug 26, 2008, 8/26/2008, or 8/26/08) and Wednesday, August 27, 2008 (Wed, Aug 27, 2008, 8/27/2008, or 8/27/08).


JayceLand Pick indicates an event that's a preferred pick of the day ... probably something worth checking out.

Top Pick indicates a "guaranteed" best bet for the particular genre of the indicated event.

GarageBand link links to a band's page on GarageBand.com which offers reviews and information about bands.

MySpace link links to a band's page on MySpace.com which is a friend-networking site that is popular with bands.

Fly the flag today. is a day when you should fly the flag according to the Veterans of Foreign Wars calendar.
