Tonight at The Montage Live Music Hall (50 Chestnut St., formerly the Montage Grille) is Fever, and wicked fun, saxophone-driven, percussive groove-rock band The BuddhaHood starting around 10 p.m.
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Bam gua nat(Night and Day) starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 2 p.m. According to the Eastman House calendar, "a new fish-out-of-water tale from the wildly prolific South Korean director Hong Sang-soo, whose comedies of bad manners recall a mix of Albert Brooks and Eric Rohmer. Sung-nam is a married, middle-aged painter from Seoul who flees to Paris after getting busted for smoking pot with a group of American tourists. Hanging out with an odd group of fellow expatriates, he soon ends up in a triangle with two young students, allowing Hong to perform a typically witty dissection of an insecure male ego."

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.
