If you felt so inclined, you could leave your wallet at home for Suga Wack’s performance at Thursday night’s Boynton Beach Art Walk. You may, however, consider bringing along some furniture (preferably a folding lawn chair) for the endeavor, because it’s going to be a long night, according to Rolando Chang Barrero, director of the walk and ActivistArtistA. Barrero describes Suga Wack as an experimental chamber jazz band. “It’s nontraditional, like everything that goes on in my space,” he said. Nine South Florida artists will open their studio spaces for the art walk, in addition to an opening reception for a new show, “Symbolism: Pushing Boundaries.” School-themed food truck PS561 will be on the premises selling food and drinks. The performance will take place at 422 W. Industrial Ave. in Boynton Beach. The music starts at 5:30 p.m., the exhibition opens at 6, and there is no admission charge for any of the events.
