90s Bands, Fireworks, and a bunch of Last Chance’s!

Hey y’all!  So in the coming week, we have a bunch of cool stuff, including some sweet music (Rammstein or the Deftones, anyone?), a whole lot of Last Chance’s as shows close out their runs, and of course a bunch of fireworks! Because really, it’s not ‘Murica if we don’t celebrate our Independence for a whole week. Don’t forget to check The Kid List and the Ongoing Events pages for more ideas!

As usual, if you know about anything I’ve missed, please feel free to share in the comments below to spread the wealth. If you have an upcoming event you would like added, PM me the details/link and I’ll get it up on the list.

On to the fun!
