Daily Choices: What to do on Tuesday, November 6 

MUSIC: I've seen the multi-Juno-Award-winning Tragically Hip twice before. Tonight the band will be at the Auditorium (875 E. Main St., 9 p.m., $39.50-$69.50, This is one of the best-sounding "big rock" bands to grace the stage. The Canadian super group has a new platter in tow, "Now For Plan A," it's thirteenth in a long line of releases dating back to 1987 (though the band began in 1983).

ART: Artists explore the forward motion of technology by looking back: "Low Fidelity" is an exhibition currently up at Tower Fine Arts Gallery (350 New Campus Drive, SUNY Brockport) in which creators intentionally used outdated modes of technology in the creation of or as the materials for their works. See the free show through December 9; hours today are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more info, visit

MUSIC: (Update: show is sold out). It might be on a Tuesday, but don't let that stop you from heading over to the East End to check out LA's Dillon Francis and what could be one of the best East Coast/West Coast sets currently on tour. With a cheery upbeat kind of dance beat, it makes it even more surprising when he makes the drop and gets all dubby. Check it out tonight at Pearl (349 East Ave., 8 p.m., $15, 325-5660).

LITERATURE: Stop into Central Library (115 South Ave.) today, 12:12-12:52 p.m., for a "Books Sandwiched In" discussion of "Grace and Grit: My Fight for Equal Pay and Fairness at Goodyear and Beyond" by Lilly Ledbetter, as reviewed by Lanier Scott Isom. The event is free to attend; for more info, call 428-8350.

WORKSHOP: They may seem tricky, but with a little practice, crêpes aren't that difficult to create. Want guidance? Take The CrepExperience, a workshop held today, 6-8:30 p.m., at Simply Crêpes Canandaigua (101 S. Main St., Canandaigua). Registration is $35; for more info, call 208-5486 or visit

MUSIC: If you want to spend your Tuesday evening dancing away to some old big band tunes, you won't want to miss the Penfield Rotary Big Band Swing Dance tonight at Penfield Community Center (1985 Baird Road, Penfield, 340-8655). Get your feet ready to go by 7:30 p.m., and entry will only cost you $1.
