Spesh: Rochester Winos will hold a Wine and Food Pairing tonight, 6:30-9 p.m., at Joey's Pasta House (1789 Penfield Rd., Penfield). Tickets are $30, and registration is required. For more information, visit rochesterwinos.com.
Music: With breathy vocals and interesting synthy bits, Little Spoon will dig a little hole in your ear and nest there. It’s chill and slow, true, but solidly in the same vein as Pictureplane, plus all the dreamy keyboards you could ever hope for. If you’re all stuffed up, all the better to get your cough syrup on and come out for a show (the booze kills the bugs, don’cha know). Local artist Eyeway is all the girl with a guitar you could ever need, plus a little more, and a little folk should prove a good mix, as will the piano stylings of John Valenti. TeenSet will be on hand after the bands with all the cool 45s. The show takes place tonight, 8 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8.18+. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
Art: Visit My Sister’s Gallery (505 Mt. Hope Ave.) today, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., and take in “Art Therapy,” a display of wooden sculptures by Cheryl and Don Olney. The show remains on view through March 31, and is free to attend. For more information, call 546-8400 or visit EpiscopalSeniorLife.org.
Music: Can’t go wrong with Irish music at an Irish bar can you? I wouldn’t think so, so stop down to Johnny’s (1382 Culver Rd., johnnysirishpub.com) tonight and listen to the musings of Irish Ben. Music starts at 7 p.m., and as always, is free.
