Today from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. at The Rochester Contemporary Art Gallery (137 East Ave.) is Shelter, the "third and final performance in the Needs series and presents [Terese Longva] and [Laurel Jay Carpenter] each performing related acts. One woman sits at a square table, piled high with tiny pea-sized stones. She considers, counts, and drops each one to the ground. A second woman, with an identical table and chair strapped to her back, attempts to drag a huge bag of stones across the length of RoCo's main gallery."

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Ovsyanki (Silent Souls) starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 2 p.m. The trailer looks gorgeous and the Eastman House calendar describes it: "after the death of his wife, Miron asks his friend Aist to help him deliver her body according to the funeral customs of an ancient and extinct Volga Finnic tribe. As the men travel across thousands of miles in search of the lake by which the couple spent their honeymoon, they explore elements of their past: as individuals, as friends, and as the inheritors of a culture that only exists as memory."

"Join Harvey Williams (trailname Jolly Rancher) and his dog Harley (trailname Kneecaps) as they bring you along on the 2178.3 mile journey from Springer Mountain, GA to Mt Katahdin, ME" on the Appalachian Trail at The Penfield Public Library (1985 Baird Rd.) today at 2:30 p.m. in a program titled
Harley and Me: A Travelogue with Harvey. I got sucked in to watching many of his YouTube videos about the gear he used.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Tulitikkutehtaan tyttö(The Match Factory Girl) starting at 8 p.m. In the Dryden's second film in a series of films by Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki this one is about a woman "stuck in a dead-end job, forced to support her ungrateful parents, and socially isolated" who "thinks her luck has changed after an encounter with a handsome stranger when, in fact, it"s only gotten worse. Pushed over the edge, Iiris begins to exact carefully crafted (and surprisingly efficient) revenge."

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.
