Come join us at Sugar City on Monday 1.31 for a warm and cozy American Music show with:

Marc Pinansky (http://www.myspace.com/marcpinansky)
/// Marc is the lead singer/guitarist for the Boston band Township who have performed for Buffalonians twice in the recent past. He also fronted Runner & The Thermodynamics, played keys and guitar for Tulsa, and drums for Mikey French Fries. Some of his weirder musical accomplishments include… writing and performing commercials for McDonald’s and Marlboro, and writing an album this past spring with The Epping Middle School 8th Grade. Over the past year, he’s released two solo EP’s and also supported Damien Jurado, David Bazan, Ryan Bingham, Johnny Flynn, Matt Costa, Tim Kasher and more.

Patrick St. Johnson (http://www.myspace.com/patrickstjohnson)
///Patrick is the embodiment of the real heart & soul that is the local music scene. Currently Patrick is plucking the upright bass for Reverend Soapbox and the Rabble Rousers. The sight and sound of Patrick just makes you want to smile. We will be treated to a special solo set.

Roger Bryan and the Orphans (http://www.myspace.com/rogerbryan)
///Roger has long been a favorite and one of the hardest working local musicians. Buffalo News just called him our own Jeff Tweedy. We are really excited to have the whole band along for this show!

This is sure to be a delightful evening. There will be tea and cocoa and we can all sit with our legs crossed all comfy like on the freshly vacuumed carpet.

This event s free and you do not have to bring chili to come. Just show up, eat food and hang out.


Call for Work!
Title: Down the Road
Deadline: Feb 1
Media: Photo and Video

Sugar City is organizing a multi-media gallery show highlighting the efforts of Buffalo’s hardest working bands that hit the road and play their tunes for the greater masses. In the Sugar City spirit of doing it together we hope this show will not only serve as a source of inspiration for new up and coming bands but also as a conversation starter to share resources and experiences. The title comes from Pacific NW garage rock-band Dead Moon, who exhibit the DIY punk aesthetic we hold dear.

We are looking for photo and video submissions of Buffalo bands that have gone on tour (any amount of time & anywhere) We hope to get many different genres of music together. We are hoping to a mass a large photo series and have a video display of live performances.

Media can be of bands playing or bands just having fun on their travels. The gallery show will culminate with a concert featuring 4 of the bands featured in the show. Submission are due by February 1st.

Please email buffalosugarcity@gmail.com if interested. If sending photos or videos please label with band name, date, venue and city. Photos will be printed as standard 4×6 on glossy paper. There are hopes to also compile photos as a zine.
