Check our calendar online at rochestercitynewspaper.com to peruse the wealth of opportunities Rochester has provided for the fresh new year.
Music: Even if you were far away from home or friend or family this holiday season, you still have to chance to be almost home, or at least close to it, tonight. Check out Close To Home (with We Are Defiance opening up) tonight at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St., waterstreetmusic.com) at 4:30 p.m. this afternoon. Tickets cost $10.
MUSIC: It’s always great to see local musicians coming together for a good cause, and tonight you have a chance to give back at X-Fest, a benefit Concert for the victims of the Newtown tragedy at California Brew Haus (402 Ridge Road West). Over ten acts will be there, music starts at 8 p.m. and costs $5, with all proceeds going to the cause.
Whoever first said two is better than one wasn’t talking about “Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.”
