JayceLand Pick 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." [source: Dryden Theater calendar] [all ages]

JayceLand Pick Updated: 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 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, March 18, 2010 (Thu, Mar 18, 2010, 3/18/2010, or 3/18/10) Friday, March 19, 2010 (Fri, Mar 19, 2010, 3/19/2010, or 3/19/10) Saturday, March 20, 2010 (Sat, Mar 20, 2010, 3/20/2010, or 3/20/10) Sunday, March 21, 2010 (Sun, Mar 21, 2010, 3/21/2010, or 3/21/10) Monday, March 22, 2010 (Mon, Mar 22, 2010, 3/22/2010, or 3/22/10) Tuesday, March 23, 2010 (Tue, Mar 23, 2010, 3/23/2010, or 3/23/10) and Wednesday, March 24, 2010 (Wed, Mar 24, 2010, 3/24/2010, or 3/24/10).


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.
