FARGO—A former house of worship is the newest haven for music and matrimony in downtown Fargo. Sanctuary Events Center offered a taste of what's in store Thursday night with a soft opening featuring Minneapolis soul singer Sonny Knight and the Lakers.
FARGO—The Fourth of July may not be the hottest day of the summer, but it's likely the hottest day on your social calendar. Whether you're spending a day at the lake or at a backyard barbecue, or just staying in your air-conditioned home to watch patriotic programming, chances are you have something in mind for how to spend America's birthday.

FARGO—Amid the aromas of wood-smoked meats, baked beans and midway sweets at this week's Happy Harry's RibFest, another distinctive flavor will stand out—the sound of 1990s rock. With '90s acts like Blind Melon and Smash Mouth headlining two of the nights, the four-day event serves as the latest example of a two decade-old flashback. "Look at this summer with Boyz II Men coming to town," says Jesse James, DJ and program director at Big 98.7, referring to the Wednesday, Aug. 10, show at Bluestem with En Vogue. "People are really eating it up."
FARGO—There are few, if any, surprises in a James Taylor concert and the singer's fans wouldn't have it any other way. The 68-year-old played a predictably smooth and mellow show Saturday night at the Fargodome, pulling out hits from his nearly 50-year career. Actually, only a handful of songs were written after 1980 and that was just fine with the crowd of about 7,000. "We've got some new songs. They sound like the old tunes, don't worry," Taylor joked, introducing "Montana" and "Today, Today, Today" off last year's "Before this World."
FARGO—Facing allegations of domestic abuse by his estranged wife, Johnny Depp is going on with the shows. The actor/rock star has hit the road with his group Hollywood Vampires, a tour that will bring the stars to Fargo on Monday, July 18.
