JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #172: Years of the Word of John
Ok, so we are going to
(165 State Street)
on Saturday instead of somewhere else, which we'll be doing on May 4. Apparently Mike and Tina are coming up from Maryland and they really really wanted to go to O'Baglo's, so ...
Anyway, in the past, I guess Saturday was most interesting, even though it wasn't. Basically I saw four bands at four different bars. First up, I was off to
(875 Monroe Ave.)
at 9 to see
who was pretty good ... the crowd there just doesn't like to shut up which kinda sucks to see folk music. Next was
Acme Bar & Pizza
(495 Monroe Ave.)
at 10 to see
who do modern rock covers and a few of their own tunes. They're pretty talented but hey, it's mostly covers. Next, around 11:15 I went to
(171 St. Paul, formerly Red)
Dead Blue Hand
but they were playing last, so I got to see
from Buffalo. They do punk rock a lot like
Dead Blue Hand
but rougher sounding. Finally, around 11:30 I went to
The Bug Jar
(219 Monroe Ave.)
Eddie Nebula and the Plague
in (their guitarist) Carl's last performance with them. They did pretty well but since
from New York didn't show, they started around 12:30 just as I showed up and finished only an hour later--Ben, their new drummer, doesn't know all the songs yet.
- Sometime in the distant future, people act like they do in the last 9 Halloween movies and get killed. Kinda like
except less use of the words "gold" and "where'sme."
Life or Something Like It
- Angelina Jolie grows up a little and puts on some clothes (although not many) for a change and plays a woman who is fated to die soon. I don't know if I can emphasize enough that Chicken Lady loves life. Yeah.
Since Water Street is booked up for a while,
Some Assembly Required
will be at
(50 Chestnut St.)
tonight ... probably starting around 7 ... I really should have checked.
Trivia Quiz continues at
The Old Toad
(277 Alexander St.)
My interest is waning, but I keep going and we still haven't won--whether we have a few people or a whole bunch.. We've been within a couple questions of winning, but so has everyone else. It all gets started a little after 9.
As of a few months ago,
(16 Gibb Street)
still has open mic poetry downstairs starting around 9:30.
Tonight from 8 to 10 is an interesting "new-material-only"
Open-Mic Comedy Night
(389 Gregory St.)
I think they're making it into a workshop type of environment.
The Dryden Theater
George Eastman House
(900 East Ave.)
will be showing
The Independent starting at 8.
It's about an independent filmmaker who makes a musical about a serial killer after his last movie gets cancelled. Starring Jerry Stiller and Janeane Garofalo with appearances by a bunch of other movie comics.
