♬ Sugar City’s Two Part Anniversary Party ♬
Let’s be clear. This date makes no sense. We had the opening of our first space on January 9, 2009 but January is too cold. We faked you out by having our grand opening of our current space on August 15, 2014. We were given our live music license on March 6th, 2015 but who wants to wait a few more months. What does make sense is that since legally opening in 2015 Sugar City has hosted a rough estimate of 225 events!!!! No doubt this particular event is going to be an awesome evening of art, music, and dancing all in the semi-annual tradition of Sugar City’s TWO PART PARTIES!!! Let’s celebrate together as we hit the half way mark in year two at our new space and look towards the future!

Always remember “What comes before Part B? Part-AY.”

▲▲Part I: 6PM-10PM Sugar City 1239 Niagara St Buffalo, NY▲▲
ALL-AGES $7 or $10 for both parts

Art Opening 6PM From Your Collection: a collaborative group show. We believe that everyone owns a piece of creative work that has value. For the second time Sugar City is setting out to provide a public platform to share these treasures by conducting an open call for contributions. We are always open to different interpretations of “art” and this exhibition follows the Sugar City do-it-together ethos. The only rule is that the piece cannot be something the contributor created. Let us do away with the mystery of where art comes from and what authority assigns value and celebrate the art that we each have.

Information about our organization:
Sugar City is Buffalo’s only legal, DIY, volunteer-run, all-ages performance venue. Accordingly, all events at Sugar City are drug and alcohol-free and end before 11pm. Our goal is to provide an alternative space to share and create art and community projects based on participatory culture and a do-it-together attitude. Events and initiatives include, but are not limited to music, films, poetry readings, a zine library, meeting space, art gallery, workshops, and more. We want to break down the barriers of what is and isn’t “art” because in some way everyone is an artist.
