07/02/2015 to 07/05/2015 ($120)
CONvergence is the annual convention for fans of science fiction and fantasy, kicking off the first weekend of July.
The $120 entry fee (which covers all four days), is a little hard to swallow ... but if fantasy/sci-fi is your thing, it might be worth it to meet some of these writers. NOTE: Although their poster art lists comic book/fantasy artist Charles Vess, I did not see his name on the 2015 Guests List.
Music fans: Our friends Fuzzy Machete will be playing at the "Harmonic CONvergence Stage" near the Crowne Plaza hotel on Friday, July 3rd at 8:30pm. The show is free; you do not need a badge to attend.
It's a pretty easy drive at the end of Highway 100, so I might stop in tomorrow to show support.

July 15 - Paul Seeba. Singer/songwriter with his latest Mitchell Yards album.
July 22 - Lynn O'Brien and Steven Hobert. A funk, folk, and Motown band, but "they are constantly reinventing themselves in every moment."
