8pm: Jeremy White at Aromas
8pm: Good Shot Judy plays at Triangle (have you been there yet? It’s great!)
8pm: London plays at Cogan’s– I have to recommend that you follow their Facebook page, because their promo pics are so ridiculous, they will really brighten up your feed! For example:

2-5pm: Music & Wine at Saude Creek– again, the Scottish Pig will provide the Q and Ron Fetner will provide the tunes
5pm: Lou Vangieri performs outdoors in Yorktown. Grace Episcopal Church has this sweet little Sunday night free concert series going on throughout this summer. Picnicking encouraged!
6pm-9pm: AnneMarie Sewell performs at Triangle
around sunset, or about 8:30: Hook plays on Prince George Street– Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams star in this 90s adaptation of Peter Pan (a Gen Y childhood classic!)
Oh and here’s something else- the above list is NOT comprehensive- check out the calendar for the full listing.
Aaand, here’s some stuff from the Facebook feed you may have missed this week:
A statement from the artist that designed the bicycle sculptures currently in Williamsburg:
Why bicycles? “I have a vested interest in making bicycles an expression of my concerns for life, including my own, and for society. As art vehicles, bicycles will help change the behavior of individuals, which is very fundamental for civilization to continue existing, and also so that other important things will not run out, like oil.”
Save the date- September 5 (that’s the Saturday of Labor Day weekend)- free Virginia Symphony Orchestra concert in Yorktown!
Butterfly Festival coming up August 1&2 at Williamsburg Botanical Gardens!
