Subject:Jesse Dangerously: Perpetual Motion Roadshow

Hot hot Halifax indie-nerd-rapper Jesse Dangerously is on tour right now, as part of the Perpetual Motion Roadshow!

Mini bio for Jesse:
Jesse Dangerously is a constant presence in the Halifax hip-hop scene. He has released three solo recordings, appeared on many compilations, and produced the albums of other artists.

A big fan of 1988 to 1994 era hip hop, Dangerously’s influences include the lilting hyperspeed of Chip Fu; the pop culture whirlwind of Das Efx; the indignance and unabashed political overtones of Public Enemy; the intricate rhyme schemes of Lord Finesse; and the cocky arrogance of teenaged LL Cool J or Fresh Prince.

Song sample! Outfox'd (When Pacifists Attack), from his latest ep, Inter Alia.

Anyway, the shows are mostly at bookstores and small clubs, and are all pay what you can. The other performers are Hadassah Hill from New York City, and Cort Bulloch from someplace in Alberta.

The tour dates/venues are as follows:
Chicago: Sat. July 15, 7 pm. Quimbys (1854 W. North Ave.) w/ foul-mouthed friend Brandon Wetherbee!
Cincinnati: Sun. July 16, 4 pm. Hobo Books (4040 Hamilton Ave.) w/ rap group Undermind and Bratwurst, a film by Steven Paul Lansky and Leigh Alfred Waltz!
Rochester: Tues. July 18, 9 pm. The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.)
New York City: Wed. July 19, 7:30 pm. Galapagos Art Space (70 North 6th Street, Williamsburg)
Montreal: Thurs. July 20, 8 pm. Bibliograph/e Zine Library, Toc Toc Cafe (6091 Avenue du Parc)
Ottawa: Fri. July 21, 8:30 pm. Venus Envy (320 Lisgar St.) w/ pornographer-librarian Megan Butcher!
Toronto: Sat. July 22, 8 pm. Art Bar in the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St. W.) w/ teller of goofy tales Mike Bryant!

Please check it out! Jesse is a fantastic rapper, and it should be a cool crowd and a nice evening. Plus it will all be over early enough for you to get up to whatever hijinx you might want to get up to late into the night, or for you to be in bed to get up early the next day!

I cross-posted this like a woman in love, which I am.

Subject:Clubbing Help

Hey everyone. I'm desperately trying to find a place in Rochester that actually plays house music, not current pop hits spun into techno/dance tracks. Tonic had been the only place I knew of to go, but they're now SoHo. Anyone been there since the change. Is it still the same? Are there are other places to go for what I want?? Thanks for any help.

This week at the Bug Jar:

Ad Frank and the Fast Easy Women
Thursday March 24th - 8pm
$5 over/$7 under
Be there or be squares.


Ad Frank hails from Boston MA and he is making a small tour this week around the north east. He may be a cross between Radiohead, David Bowie, and I don't know what. There is a track from his new album linked through the site above.

If you need any more convincing (discussion or more music to decide), you can IM me: DreygenFli
or email: dreygenfli@hotmail.com .. If anything, just come down for a fun evening at the Bug Jar!

The BugJar
219 Monroe Avenue
Rochester, NY 14607

Sorry if you fall victim to my cross-post.

Subject:music website launched... covering lots of stuff, including rochester
Mood:must brush my teeth

we've got a site up

AND we joined this community to keep up on Rochester Music. right now the site is under construction, but we have some content up... we have an office in California and an office in Buffalo (think SUNY Fredonia area) AND along with covering bands/tours that come through B-Lo, Cleveland and Toronto, the Rochester area is a focus. especially since i grew up there and am familiar with the area.

we'll keep posts to this community limited to when our site has specific info about rochester-area music... but, just wanted to get the word out and get feedback and stuff like that. so. i dunno. keep us posted on new music and bands and tours so we can check it out, review it, interview them and just continue to support music and local scenes.

we have a prizepack give-away going on at the site,
so check it out and check often...

there's more content coming soon
