Lots of Live Music and Other Events for the Week

Another Coffee With A Cop this week.
A word of caution AGAIN about the calendar on the site: several of the events are either old and no longer taking place, or are posted to the wrong date (for instance, the Wednesday night event at First Pres is listed under Sunday). I don't know if there's a software glitch making them post wrong (though I never have problems when I post events), or if someone who's posting at Municipal Hall just can't seem to get his or her dates correct, but check the website of whatever group is hosting each event to be sure. Hopefully this can be fixed in the future. It reflects badly on our town.

A reminder: Markley Street is reopening today.

Norristown is one of four SEPTA transportation hubs in Montgomery County that will be used to transport 10,000 riders to and from Philadelphia each day. The anticipated influx of traffic and closure of major roadways will cause gridlock throughout the region.
