The article says that the California Cowboys (country) will perform at City Hall August 7 - but that's a Sunday... Perhaps a typo?

@Stickler, thanks for pointing that error out! The dates were provided by the City of Palo Alto. We are contacting someone to see if it was typo or not. Also, we added the last date and band of the series.
