First Friday is going to look different in August. Many of the tents and vendors will move to the north side of the Arts District, creating more accessibility for galleries.

And will they alleviate concerns about safety?
The four-day music festival Neon Reverb returns this weekend for its tenth installment. The founders have passed the torch to Jason Aragon, who is bringing the festival back to its roots as a showcase of local music.
