Important CoVID-19 Update:  
In light of the current health situation, we are  trying to keep our event posts as up to date as possible. There have already been some big announcement about rescheduling events.  We will update this post as we are informed, but please double check the event pages via the "More Info" links provided in this post.
While we are sad that some amazing events are no longer taking place this weekend, the health of our community is always top priority.  
If you are at an event, please be sure to wash your hands, don't touch your face (we know, it's HARD!), and if you feel bad please avoid crowds.  We will be posting on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to keep you up to date on event rescheduling.
Stay well, Birmingham!  - Russell & Amber
