August is burning up with entertainment options.

By Chip Chandler — Producer

Summer wraps up with some boiling-hot entertainment in August. Mark your calendars now!

A few notes: 

  • Click the event title for more information (where available).
  • I'm listing as many local band gigs as available, but they're always changing; check our Friday music listings every week to see where all of your local favorites are playing. Regular weekly gigs are included at the end.
  • Classes, camps and vacation bible schools aren't included in an effort to keep the list (a bit) more concise.
  • This list is fluid. Check back for updates, and check the weekly event roundups every Thursday.
  • All listings are subject to change.
