Tonight is the night. The wait is over. No more weird smells at Ocean Gardens. Sugar City is fully repaired and ready for action. To open up the musical side of the new venue, the DIY collective is hosting its first legal show tonight with a lineup headlined by folk-punk veterans Defiance, Ohio, on the road for the first time in two years, along with the touring bands Purple 7 and High Dive. For local talent, Mallwalkers will be bringing the funk punk as always, and Softlines will be opening up the show. You will want to get there on time, not only to check out the local bands, but also because there are over 200 people RSVP’ed to this show on facebook and the venue may hit capacity.

Doors open at 6pm, and music starts at 7pm sharp, and the show will be over by 10pm. Entry is $8 at the door. Keep in mind, Sugar City is an all ages space, so there will be NO drugs or alcohol allowed at the venue, inside or outside.
