In the month of February over 30 people took up the task of having fun and being creative. Fun-a-Day is a project where people decided to do something everyday in the month of February and document it in someway. This art exhibit will display a wide range of projects from the participants. Previously projects have included drawings, photography, film making, swimming, quilting and a whole lot more. Come see what people were up to this year.

Puccio, Bryan Johnson, Linda Cross-Heitman, Barbara Rowe, Nicole Cooke, Dana Tyrrell, Jory Berkley, Alex Berkley, Becca Gay,Sarah Liddell, Jillian Harris, Madeline Otero, Julia Szprygada, Megan Hahin, Jennifer Smigielski, Nathan Deganis Librera, Geri Lee, Shane Knight, Nicole Tiedmann, Quinn McAndrews, Sal Sciandra, Felix Spencer Keigh, Jamey Hampton, Lizzy Duga, Tara Sasiadek, Alana Kelley, Michael Schenkel

WHAT IS FUN-a-DAY: The idea is to do something you think is fun or interesting, do it everyday in February and document it in someway. It could be drawing, photography, swimming, pillow making or anything you can imagine. The project can either be 28 individual pieces, or one piece. For example you could make a unique drawing everyday, or you could make one drawing and work on it everyday.

LIVE FOREVER AS YOU ARE NOW from Adult Swim

Tues 3/28 6pm doors/ 7pm show-10PM | COMEDY | $8 | INVITE

WHAM CITY COMEDY TOUR
Sugar City is thrilled to be hosting Baltimore comedy performance and video collective Wham City Comedy as they bring their absurdist comedy show back to Buffalo on MARCH 28. Wham City are the creators of viral Adult Swim infomercials like Unedited Footage of a Bear and This House Has People In It, and most recently the series The Mirror on IFC, which Slate called “the horrifying show America needs”. Their hilariously bizarre and surreal multimedia live shows are guaranteed to make you forget that you are going to die someday.

FROM WHAM CITY: “We tour once a year so please come and see us because we are doing very, very badly. We are slowly being crushed beneath a behemoth of responsibilities that we can’t even barely comprehend, while our mental and emotional stability hangs by a thread all so that we can “fulfill our dreams”–we dont even have dreams anymore because we don’t sleep, we just lay awake at night thinking about email. We just thought it would be better than this. We thought comedy would save us, but oh god we fucked up so so bad. We suck and we hate ourselves. Please please please give us money–WE ARE DYING.”

with LORELEI RAMIREZ (Avant Stand Up, New York City) Watch their video in “LATTE MAN“!
