The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing L'Apollonide: Souvenirs de la maison close(House of Pleasures) starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 2 p.m. According to the Eastman House calendar, "boasting stunning 35mm cinematography, split screens, von Sternberg worthy sets, and a soundtrack featuring, among others, The Moody Blues (!), Bertrand Bonello's House of Pleasures (previously titled House of Tolerance) was one of the most divisive films at last year's Cannes. An episodic look at an upscale brothel in turn-of-the-century France, House follows its filles de joie as they deal with clients, their Madam, and each other, capturing the elegance of the grand maison while exposing its harsh realities." I'm definitely not sure about this one ...

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Mies vailla menneisyyttä(The Man Without a Past) starting at 8 p.m. From the Eastman House description, "declared dead at the hospital, he suddenly arises and stumbles into the night.

"'Nothing can change the shape of things to come.' The perennial cult favorite Wild in the Streets tracks the rise of rock star/revolutionary Max Frost, whose band The Troopers is recruited by Senate candidate Johnny Fergus (Hal Holbrook) to support lowering the voting age to 18. But Max wants to go even younger, and rallies the youth of America beginning a political career of his own. Soon, Capitol Hill is swarming with teens, there's LSD in the Potomac, and the heartland is full of 're-education camps' for citizens over the age of 30. A gonzo pop-culture satire, courtesy of Death Race 2000 screenwriter Robert Thom, Wild in the Streets revels in its campy excesses and killer soundtrack even as it sends up youth culture as just another form of fascism.

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
