Editor’s note: I have not heard nor seen much from venues for this weekend. Perhaps they’re on vacation, or at least on vacation from email and social media. A lack of listings doesn’t mean things aren’t happening, however. Nudge your favorite place to send listings in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether they think they need the publicity or not, their listing here helps to promote the city as a whole.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend.
