JayceLand Pick Today at The Multi-Use Community Cultural Center (MuCCC) (142 Atlantic Ave.) is a performance of Edge at 7:30 p.m. According to The Method MachineMySpace link, "Edge is set on the last day of the poet Sylvia Plath's life, in her kitchen, and reflects on her childhood, her husband-poet Ted Hughes, and her work. Plath takes account of her actions as well as the actions of others and uses them to fuel her tragic flaw: passion. The prolific writer took her life on a cold February day in 1963, after being abandoned by the greatest thing and the worst thing that ever happened to her: her husband. The play examines the events that led up to her turning on that gas stove and passing into a sleep from which she would never wake." [source: the proverbial grapevine]

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, September 24, 2009 (Thu, Sep 24, 2009, 9/24/2009, or 9/24/09) Friday, September 25, 2009 (Fri, Sep 25, 2009, 9/25/2009, or 9/25/09) Saturday, September 26, 2009 (Sat, Sep 26, 2009, 9/26/2009, or 9/26/09) Sunday, September 27, 2009 (Sun, Sep 27, 2009, 9/27/2009, or 9/27/09) Monday, September 28, 2009 (Mon, Sep 28, 2009, 9/28/2009, or 9/28/09) Tuesday, September 29, 2009 (Tue, Sep 29, 2009, 9/29/2009, or 9/29/09) and Wednesday, September 30, 2009 (Wed, Sep 30, 2009, 9/30/2009, or 9/30/09).


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.
