Planning Your Days for XRIJF 2013 (Xerox Rochester International Jazz Fest)


Last year was my first venture to the XRIJF using the Club Pass.  I spent 8 of the 9 days clubbing all over downtown Rochester with my friend Kirk.  To get the most out of your Club Pass takes some planning.  Most artists are playing 2 shows in the same night and some play across multiple nights.  Organizers group similar artists in certain venues.  Higher energy jazz seems to find its way to the Big Tent, blues and Americana can be found at Abilene, and last year the Xerox Auditorium had some of the most intense jazz.  Get The Blessing and other artists from across the pond provided cool sounds for one of my favorite venues, the Christ Church.

Since the line-ups have been released, I've been compiling Spotify playlists to listen to the daily line-ups.  I star my favorites and make sure I don't miss anyone that really peaks my interest.  I still like to stumble upon the unknown once and awhile so I don't let my playlist dictate my entire evening but it sure does help me navigate the week.  I'd like to share me playlists with you.  Enjoy.
