Trimania is Coming!

What better way to celebrate the city’s ever-expanding arts scene than with the Buffalo Arts Studio’s Trimania party, an event that continues to get bigger and better over the years?
 
“The first Trimania was big. The second was huge. The third will be a monster,” said organizers of the event back in 2008.  With the lineup for this year, number four promises to exceed all expectations. The party will take place on Saturday, March 26 from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. inside the Tri-Main Center, located at 2495 Main Street.
 
The event will have everything you could ask for in the way of art, from musical performances, to dance, spoken word, film, and more. “Bands will be spread out on five different stages, performance art located in two venues, a movie room featuring a film by Knuckle City Films, more than 60 artists studios will be open, exhibits in three locations and more than 3,000 people in attendance,” said Jeff Langridge, Buffalo Arts Studio development officer. “It’s a huge party celebrating the arts.”
 
There will also be food and a cash bar at the event and plenty of art for sale. “It’s a wild, creative event with dancing in the halls and unexpected encounters,” said Elizabeth Leader of Leader Artworks, whose studio is located right in the Buffalo Arts Studio. Visitors will have the chance to purchase art in the individual artists’ studios or in the Buffalo Arts Studio gift shop.
 
“Trimania is Buffalo Arts Studio’s largest fundraiser and is an essential earned revenue stream that provides support for key staff positions,” Langridge said.  According to Langridge, this year’s event is going to be even more epic than in years past. There will be more stages set up and more artists and performers showcasing their work.  The following lists give you a taste of the line-up for performers and artists who will be at the event.

@Buffalo Transplant -- Just to clarify, the inclusion of DJ REHKA's photo in this year's Trimania event listing was an error (while she did perform in Trimania 3, she is not part of this year's line-up).

Unfortunately you have used the image of DJ REHKA, a internationally known DJ of South-Asian Fusion/Bhangra based out of NYC. Since she is not on the bill for TRIMANIA, I can't imagine she would appreciate her image being used randomly for an event she is not affiliated with.

But check DJ REKHA out - http://www.djrekha.com/
