It's been a while, but I got back to Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) to catch The Enablers. It was fun to get back to the old haunt, and the band didn't disappoint. They play a strong mix of punk and rock, although at this point it's mostly cover songs. Their originals were solid and the mix of music … I mean — wow — who plays the Hollies?
I'll definitely be keeping an eye on them … even if they do change their name. [In my opinion, The Enablers is a fine name, but at the request of the lead singer, I added my favorite fake band name to their list of possibilities: Fist the Bride even though it was destined for a fake metal band.]
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Made in U.S.A. starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 7 p.m. Probably more of a cinephile film than one for the audience, but nonetheless, the Eastman House calender describes it: "Godard's final film with then-wife and muse Anna Karina is a very loose adaptation of an American crime novel by the late Donald Westlake."

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Treeless Mountain starting at 8 p.m. and again tomorrow at 5 p.m. The Eastman House calendar offers these enticements: "a gentle and restrained semi-autobiographical account of two little girls, told from a child's perspective" and "the subtle performances of the two young leads contribute greatly to a portrait of childhood as a time of delicate growth, unforeseen sadness, and charming surprises."

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
or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator.
