Today at Abilene Bar and Lounge (153 Liberty Pole Wy., formerly Tara) is a Tara Reunion starting around 12 p.m. featuring "Tara Era" Progressive Pricing, Karaoke, and Chef Rocky at the Grill.
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing trafic starting at 8 p.m. The Eastman House calendar says it all: "in his final feature film appearance, [Jacques Tati's] bumbling Monsieur Hulot takes to Paris's highways and byways. Hulot, employed as an auto company's director of design, accompanies his new vehicle (a camper tricked out with absurd gadgetry) to an auto show in Amsterdam. Naturally, the road is paved with modern-age mishaps. This late-career delight is a masterful demonstration of the comic genius's expert timing and sidesplitting visual gags, and a bemused last look at technology run amok."

In case you missed it on Saturday, WXXI (280 State St.) will be screening Seneca Falls, a documentary about WOWER Power by Louise Vance tonight at 9 p.m. I got a chance to see it on Saturday and it's a nice documentary that impresses the notion that it is not exceptional people who change the world, but people taking action that is later realized to be exceptional — that it is taking action that is important, not "being" exceptional.

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.
