Weekly Rochester Events #645 Starting Thursday, May 19, 2011
There are no new blog posts this week, but you can review the blog for older posts.
Armed Forces Day
Photographer Simon Norfolk was called back to assignment in Afghanistan, so in his absence, Thomas N. Tischer will present a lecture on New York City of the 1950s at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) tonight at 6 p.m.
Eastman House e-mail][all ages]
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Letter starting at 8 p.m. The Eastman House calendar says, "William Wyler's adaptation of a Somerset Maugham short story opens with a bang — six of them, to be exact, all from the gun Bette Davis has just used to kill the man she claims made an unwelcome advance. As the wife of a respectable plantation owner, she'll mostly likely get off — except for that incriminating letter that proves her clear-cut case of self-defense was anything but.

Tonight at The Bunker (see source website for details on getting the address) is loud effects feedback, reed instruments through effects, and looping from Wolf Eyes, and something like semi-melodic fast-paced noise from Pengo starting around 9 p.m.
Carbon Records calendar]
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Daisy Kenyon starting at 8 p.m. in which "a love triangle between a fragile fashion designer ([Joan Crawford]), a sweet-but-cynical ex-soldier (Henry Fonda), and smarmy-but-sincere lawyer (Dana Andrews) threatens to explode the complacency of all involved."

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.
