Music: The Acoustic Basement started as an anomaly at the Warped Tour – a small tent for quiet, intimate performances away from the usual punk mayhem – but it has now evolved into the Acoustic Basement Tour, which comes to the Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight. Geoff Rickly, the frontman of the now-defunct Thursday, headlines a set of fellow punks gone unplugged, including The Movielife and I am an Avalanche’s Vinnie Caruana, A Loss of Words, Koji and Brian Marquis. Doors open at 7 p.m., music starts at 7:15. Price is TBA; check bugjar.com for updates.
Music: It’s DJ night at Dubland, and SwaggleRock is bringing the bass. While this outfit’s mixes can tend toward the nasty, it’s got an undeniable catchy swing that is certainly worth sticking around for.
Special Event: Penfield Public Library (1985 Baird Rd.) will host the owner of Cocoa Bean Shoppe to discuss “Cultivating a Taste for Fine Chocolate,” complete with free samples of chocolates from around the world, tonight at 7 p.m. The event is free, but register by calling 340-8720 or visiting penfieldlibrary.org.
