On the List | Gay weddings, craft etc. markets, Pretty Parlor soiree, Masonfest (+26 more)

Velocity Dance Center’s Real/Time festival kicks off this weekend. The SunBreak’s coverage of the fest is much more informed than anything we could write (“It’s not at all an accident that so much of the dance reads like Lynch’s movie”)  so check out their  preview and make plans accordingly — many events have or will sell out.
