    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Madadayo starting at 8 p.m. The Eastman House calendar has this to say, "Kurosawa's final film, a celebration of life, is the poetic tale of a playful professor who leaves the security of his tenure and his established career to explore his true passion as a writer. His search for solitude is made difficult by Allied bombings, but his strong spirit drives his perseverance and inspires visitations from former students who hold him in great reverence."

    JayceLand Pick Very good, experimentally-daring acoustic soloist Seth Faergolzia will be at Havana Moe's Cigars (125 East Ave.) tonight at 9 p.m. — probably with a guest performer. [source: Facebook]

    JayceLand Pick Boston's really good classic-rock band TownshipMySpace link, and Velvet Elvis will be at The Bug JarMySpace link (219 Monroe Ave.) starting around 9 p.m. [source: Bug Jar calendar]

    Today and tomorrow at 8 p.m. is Improv Elimination and Conspiracy Theory with Village Idiots Present (VIP) at The VIP Theatre (274 N. Goodman St., in Village Gate, Suite #D106). [source: Village Idiots Present website]

    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Ran starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 4 p.m. Akira Kurosawa's "spellbinding epic of feudal disorder focuses on the alienation brought on by man's lust for power and depicts it with violence set to classical cadences. Shakespeare's King Lear refashioned through samurai stylings, Ran centers on warlord Hidetora's abdication and decision to divide his holdings between his three sons. Seen on the big screen, Kurosawa's mass orchestration of movement, color, landscape, and spectacle achieve a jaw-dropping beauty. This screening represents a rare opportunity to view a 35mm print of Ran made directly off of the camera negative." Wow. [source: Dryden Theater calendar] [all ages]

    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, August 26, 2010 (Thu, Aug 26, 2010, 8/26/2010, or 8/26/10) Friday, August 27, 2010 (Fri, Aug 27, 2010, 8/27/2010, or 8/27/10) Saturday, August 28, 2010 (Sat, Aug 28, 2010, 8/28/2010, or 8/28/10) Sunday, August 29, 2010 (Sun, Aug 29, 2010, 8/29/2010, or 8/29/10) Monday, August 30, 2010 (Mon, Aug 30, 2010, 8/30/2010, or 8/30/10) Tuesday, August 31, 2010 (Tue, Aug 31, 2010, 8/31/2010, or 8/31/10) and Wednesday, September 1, 2010 (Wed, Sep 1, 2010, 9/1/2010, or 9/1/10).


    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.

    Fly the flag today. is a day when you should fly the flag according to the Veterans of Foreign Wars calendar.
