    JayceLand Pick Today from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at The Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave., near Goodman St.) is the ArtAbility Rochester Expo, teaching "how art can be made accessible to people with vision loss through audio description and touch tours."

    The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Others starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 7 p.m. The only way I'd attend if it were free ... which it is for Eastman House members on tonight's screening. Hopefully the quality of the film and its suspense does not hinge on a silly plot twist. [source: Dryden Theater calendar] [all ages]

    Frankie Leigh and JewelsMySpace link performs at Happy Hour tonight starting around 6 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge (153 Liberty Pole Wy., formerly Tara). [source: Abilene website]

    JayceLand Pick This evening around 7 p.m. at The Flying Squirrel Community Space (285 Clarissa St., formerly the Flower City Elks Lodge) is a screening of Cointelpro 101 — a film about the confusing COINTELPRO acronym and its place in "the state's strategy to prevent movements and communities from overturning white supremacy and creating racial justice."

    JayceLand Pick Tonight at 7:30 p.m. and tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. is a performance of The Sidewalk That Couldn't Be Plowed — Part One: Attraction at The Multi-Use Community Cultural Center (MuCCC) (142 Atlantic Ave.) [source: MuCCC website]

    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing También la lluvia (Even the Rain) starting at 8 p.m. Having seen the trailer, I'm fascinated by this dark tale of "a cocky young director whose political sympathies run a distant second to his all-consuming passion for filmmaking. Shooting a revisionist account of Columbus's conquest of the Americas in the cheap-labor mecca of Bolivia, [the director] soon learns that history isn't the only thing that needs revising: rising opposition to corporate theft of local water resources becomes difficult to ignore. A film that questions the sincerity and priorities of monied movie producers invading the third world — that is, an ongoing critique of itself." [source: Dryden Theater calendar] [all ages]

    The Bug JarMySpace link (219 Monroe Ave.) will be hosting Like WolvesMySpace link, Endangered Youth, School Shootings, and Burn Everything starting around 9 p.m. [source: Bug Jar calendar]

    Dave Wetzel will be at Lori's Natural Foods (900 Jefferson Rd.) today from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to discuss Cod Liver Oil — It's History, Manufacturing (Past and Present) and the Health Benefits. Smells like snake oil pseudoscience to me ... and, naturally, Wikipedia's article has a heavy talk page discussing whether the main article is factual. Personally: just show me the links to the peer-reviewed studies that demonstrate positive effects. And if there are benefits, are they better than just eating fish? [source: Rochester Farm Connection Yahoo! Group]

    Today from 10 a.m. to around noon centered on Star Alley (662 South Ave.) is Weed The Wedge Community Gardening Day. [source: South Wedge website]

    JayceLand Pick Updated: Today from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Room 1-101 of Dewey Hall at The University of Rochester (Elmwood Ave. at Intercampus Dr.) is Home Movie Day. [source: Eastman House e-mail] [all ages]

    Top Pick Excellent, deceptively mellow, complex rock-and-roll from HinkleyMySpace link, good acoustic soloist Joe Sorriero, and really great, tight, current punk-rock from 5 Watt BulbMySpace link will be at Abilene Bar and Lounge (153 Liberty Pole Wy., formerly Tara) starting around 9 p.m. [source: Carbon Records calendar]

    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, October 13, 2011 (Thu, Oct 13, 2011, 10/13/2011, or 10/13/11) Friday, October 14, 2011 (Fri, Oct 14, 2011, 10/14/2011, or 10/14/11) Saturday, October 15, 2011 (Sat, Oct 15, 2011, 10/15/2011, or 10/15/11) Sunday, October 16, 2011 (Sun, Oct 16, 2011, 10/16/2011, or 10/16/11) Monday, October 17, 2011 (Mon, Oct 17, 2011, 10/17/2011, or 10/17/11) Tuesday, October 18, 2011 (Tue, Oct 18, 2011, 10/18/2011, or 10/18/11) and Wednesday, October 19, 2011 (Wed, Oct 19, 2011, 10/19/2011, or 10/19/11).


    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.
