Tonight: Sugar City Presents Punk Night


Check out Sugar City Presents Punk Night with sets brought to you by the some of the same DJs who have made Sugar City Soul Nights a success: Handsome Dan, Jill Apex Hunter, Air Gordan, and the Professor of New Wave and All Things Glamorous Dan O. tonight (Sept 9) at 10pm.

You’ve heard the rumors in town – for one night only, the Sugar City Soul Night crew will be spinning all your favorite punk records from past and present to give you the uncontrollable urge to contort yourself all over the Elmwood Lounge. This one is for the punk rockers, the new wavers, the indie kids, the mods, the goths, the garage geeks, the glam gurus, the new romantics, and YOU. So lace up your Docs, put up your Mohican, and get ready to dance this mess around!

For those that are unfamiliar, Sugar City (19 Wadsworth St in Allentown) exists to organize alternative community arts and cultural events in the Buffalo area. Our goal is to share and create art 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, local craft corner, art gallery, workshops, and workspaces. We want to break down the barriers of what is and isn’t “art” because in some way everyone is an artist. Sugar City is about sharing creativity and energy. This organization focuses itself on the exhibition, performance, and creation of art for those who cannot obtain space from traditional sources.
