2010-08-23/29 Weekly LOVIEE

School’s back in session and that means a lot of arts organizations are kicking off their season this fall. And all that jazz… I barely had time to post the first event here to Twitter, so I have no time to write something tremedously witty or insightful like I usually do. I’ll do better next week, I promise…
