The premise is simple: What if different Rochester musicians all wrote songs with the same exact title? More than 20 local songwriters will give that a shot, including Connie Deming, Maria Gillard, Madeleine McQueen, Mike Muscarella, Scott Regan, and Jeff Spevak. Actor and comedian Michael Koldan will serve as host. "How Did We Get Here?" marks the third such "If All Rochester Wrote the Same Song" showcase; previous song titles were "Don't Go Drinking on an Empty Heart" and "You'll Thank Me Later."
"How Did We Get Here?" takes place Saturday, November 11, at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $15-$20. 454-4596; hochstein.org.
