    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Blue Bird starting at 8 p.m. Dr. Philip C. Carli provides live piano accompaniment for this "delicate dream of a film, staged largely in a tableau style whose tricks and affectations are as wondrous as the story itself. The children Mytyl and Tytyl find themselves spirited away to a fantasy land of animals and fairies and begin a quest to find the Blue Bird of Happiness. Beautiful and unsettling, The Blue Bird is Tourneur at his Pictorialist zenith. Restored with its original tints and tones by George Eastman House." [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 18, 2011 (Thu, Aug 18, 2011, 8/18/2011, or 8/18/11) Friday, August 19, 2011 (Fri, Aug 19, 2011, 8/19/2011, or 8/19/11) Saturday, August 20, 2011 (Sat, Aug 20, 2011, 8/20/2011, or 8/20/11) Sunday, August 21, 2011 (Sun, Aug 21, 2011, 8/21/2011, or 8/21/11) Monday, August 22, 2011 (Mon, Aug 22, 2011, 8/22/2011, or 8/22/11) Tuesday, August 23, 2011 (Tue, Aug 23, 2011, 8/23/2011, or 8/23/11) and Wednesday, August 24, 2011 (Wed, Aug 24, 2011, 8/24/2011, or 8/24/11).


    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.
