Jazz Around Town: Jazz gig listings for your next seven days ....
Exodus to Jazz starts its 2012-2013 season Saturday with the Wallace Roney Septet

Jazz Around Town: Not a jazz VIP, but I play one on the Internet

Jazz Sign

Just picked up my tickets for Pat Metheny at the German House on Sunday. Almost forgot about that concert (and I have no excuse). As I only play a VIP on the Internet, my delay resulted in buying the more pricey VIP Balcony tickets (those are all that are left, or were a couple of days ago). Should be a great show and there will be bar service with the VIPs...! 

Rochester City Newspaper is back up with their website and a new way of finding and showing music listings. Check it out at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
