by and


ART: Check out "Nature in Art: Selections from the Finger Lakes Chapter of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators," on view through May 12 at Cummings Nature Center's Hurst Gallery (6475 Gulick Road, Naples). The gallery is open 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. today, and admission is included in the Nature Center's fee ($3, $10 per family, free to members). For more information, call 374-6160 or visit

SPORTS: The Rochester Americans face off against the Binghamton Senators tonight, 7:05 p.m., at Blue Cross Arena (1 War Memorial Square). Tickets are $15-$20 and can be reserved by calling 800-745-3000 or by visiting

MUSIC: Guitarist Michael Musillami came on the scene in the early 1980's in organ trios led by Richard "Groove" Holmes and others. He expanded his reputation as a sideman with jazz greats like Curtis Fuller, Dewey Redman, and Junior Cook. Now with his own trio, Musillami steps out front with commanding solos reaching from hard bop to avant-garde and covering a lot of the territory in between. No small part of his innovative sound stems from his excellent choice of band-mates: drummer George Schuller and bassist Joe Fonda. The Michael Musillami Trio performs tonight at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. $10-$12. 292-9940,

MUSIC: Take a little trip to the Emerald Isle via a stopover in Chicago with The Tossers, returning to Rochester for the first time in more than five years. More traditional-sounding than Celtic-rock contemporaries Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphys, The Tossers have more in common with The Pogues. The group plays drunken Irish music with the flair, flame, and fury of modern rock and roll, but with all the fiddle, mandolin, and tin whistle you could want. Continental and local Irish rockers 1916 help to start off your St. Patrick's Day week festivities. The Tossers play tonight at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $12-$15.
