Exhibition Hours: By appointment, or by public event, with Sugar City gallery hours 5:30-7:30 every Friday.

Not Without You opens as a show to combine the visual with the textual. This exhibition will include several artists who each work heavily in illustration, collage, painting, and found objects art. With a method also known as VISPO, or visual poetry, these artists have been asked to create new forms that combine their medium with textual attributes in order to emphasize their visual objects.


Tues 2/21 7-9PM | MUSIC | FREE | INVITE
Brass Pro: “Try-out/Hang-out/Recruitment” PIZZA PARTY
Wanna join Brass Pro? Buffalo’s most rambunctious. rag-tag, rocking, miss-stepping marching band in the city?

Brass Pro is not a marching band, it’s a moving pep band, a walking rock band, a homage to the second line, a dancing mobile musical party. We need musicians (especially trombones, clarinets and percussion), flag twirlers, baton throwers, banner wavers, dancers, hulahoopers, cheerleaders, mascots and more. What ever it takes to invade public spaces in Buffalo and get the crowd moving.

We have successfully been playing since summer of 2014 as a rag tag group and we are excited to keep this project going but we need members to really make a bang. If you are curious about joining or have a slight interest in how this group operates please join us. It won’t be as much of an audition as a meet up to gain more members, talk about what our bands goals, what music we should cover, and what events we should crash. Bring an instrument if you have one. We know some possible rental opportunities and we have a few pieces of percussion to share.

The goal is to dust off our old instruments, have fun and play again so don’t worry about being rusty, we can figure it out together. As far as musical practice-a middle school skill level is all that’s needed as we will start by reading pep band style sheet music for songs like “Can’t Turn You loose”, “Let’s Dance”, “You Can Call Me All” and more hits.

We practice 2 times a month and play 1 or maybe 2 special performances every 6 weeks or so.
