The story involves a feud between two warring clan leaders on an isolated island: one who believes that the only good zombie is a dead zombie and another who thinks they should be left alone until a cure can be found, resulting in the perverse spectacle of the undead, chained inside their own homes, pretending to lead normal lives."

    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, June 24, 2010 (Thu, Jun 24, 2010, 6/24/2010, or 6/24/10) Friday, June 25, 2010 (Fri, Jun 25, 2010, 6/25/2010, or 6/25/10) Saturday, June 26, 2010 (Sat, Jun 26, 2010, 6/26/2010, or 6/26/10) Sunday, June 27, 2010 (Sun, Jun 27, 2010, 6/27/2010, or 6/27/10) Monday, June 28, 2010 (Mon, Jun 28, 2010, 6/28/2010, or 6/28/10) Tuesday, June 29, 2010 (Tue, Jun 29, 2010, 6/29/2010, or 6/29/10) and Wednesday, June 30, 2010 (Wed, Jun 30, 2010, 6/30/2010, or 6/30/10).


    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.
