2014 Upcoming Events page updated

The majority of updates on my collection of (mostly) free music in the Conejo Valley area is done. What makes this list different? The events are in chronological order, so the ones at the top are always the next event to occur. Items that have already happened aren’t visible so they don’t clutter the listing.

Upcoming Events for 2014

The list is primarily free musical shows put on by local parks districts and shopping centers, but there also some of major events that charge admission. I don’t cover clubs (unless it’s a band that I really like a lot.)
