Cure your Wednesday blues at WAM.

Maybe you’re a writer, artist or musician - maybe all three. Maybe you just love the arts. Maybe you’re looking to network with representatives from local arts organizations. Maybe you just like a good party and you’re looking for some action on a Wednesday night.
Sound like you? Then get to WAM (Writers, Artists, Musicians). The free event, which occurs on the last Wednesday of each month, is celebrating its second anniversary tonight from 6 to 10 p.m. at 464 Gallery, 464 Amherst St. in Buffalo.
For the birthday bash, the event features a bunch of past WAM performers like Megan Callahan, Dan Borodzik, Andrew Daniels and Tony Tripi, Andrew Delmonte and Mel Latimer, and Mark and Colin of Coterie of Stern as well as a poetry slam by Ten Thousand & Crew.
There will also be an exhibition by these local artists:
• David Pierro
• Chuck Tingley
• Rich Tomasello
• Thomas Webb
• Dave Tarsa
• Erica Eichelkraut
• Alana Fajemisin
But don’t just leave the art to the professionals - join in on the fun with the community painting project. Afterwards, commemorate the night with a stop in the photo booth, and grab a copy of the latest issue of NOMAD Art & Literary Magazine, which will be released at the party.
Don’t forget your blanket for sitting out in the backyard, and if you love tacos - let’s be honest: who doesn’t? - keep an eye out for the ever popular Lloyd’s Taco Truck.
