Daily Choices: What to do on Thursday, January 17 

Music: Coming to Rochester from Israel by way of L.A., Infected Mushroom is here to infect you — with the beat. Side effects may include unconsciously doing the “Night at the Roxbury” thing. Mushroom has been consistently rated one of the top acts in the EDM scene. As self-proclaimed purveyors of psychedelic trance, the act presents a light-and-sound extravaganza meant to confuse the senses. Infected Mushroom performs Thursday, January 17, 9 p.m. at Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main St. $20. 232-3221, rochestermainstreetarmory.com.

ART: The new show at the Robert Wesleyan College’s Davison Gallery (Cultural Life Center, 2301 West Side Dr.) is an Art Faculty Showcase, up through February 15. The show opens today, with a 5-7 p.m. reception. The event is free to attend. For more information, call 594-6442, or visit roberts.edu.

Music: Despite her laundry list of accomplishments, you have probably never heard of Ana Egge. This Brooklyn-based, Saskatchewan-born troubadour is not your cookie-cutter alt-country artist. Her unique sound synergizes boisterous electric guitars and the somewhat more soothing folk sounds of mandolin and fiddle. The result is a garage-country-rock kind of feel; it’s visceral and demonstrative. A deft narrative frame structures her songs, while the music seems to put contemporary and traditional folk aesthetic into perfect balance. Ana Egge performs Thursday, January 17, 8:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $8. 232-3230, abilenebarandlounge.com.

LECTURE: As part of the Conable Distinguished Lecture Series in International Studies, Toni Pressley-Sanon will present “Haiti’s Contemporary Peasant Movement: Struggles and Triumphs" today, 4-6 p.m. in the Carlson Auditorium at RIT (Lomb Memorial Dr., Henrietta). The lecture is free to attend. For more information, email bnlgla@rit.edu.

Music: The luck of the Irish comes to McGraw’s (146 W Commercial St., mcgrawsirishpub.com) tonight, with Colm Gannon (accordion) and John Blake (multi-instrumental) bringing you the traditional sounds and reels of the great Emerald Isle. Music starts at 7 p.m., tickets cost $10.

Music: Looking for jazz tonight? The Dave Chisholm Jazz Orchestra will be bringing all that is jazz straight to your ears tonight at Acanthus Café (337 East Ave., acanthuscafe.com, 319-5999). Music starts at 7 p.m., and call for any more information.
