Your Creative Calendar: 52 Things To Do, See, And Hear In August

Party with sausages, welcome back De La Soul, and get Olympic, as our Creative Calendar ushers you through the dwindling days of summer.

It's the same weird phenomenon every year. July 4th announces that the year has hit its midpoint, and then less than a month later, August 1st seems to kick off the slow steady march to Christmas. "But didn't Christmas just happen?" you think, possibly while applying UVA-absorbant sunscreen. No, it did not. That was a long time ago. In any case, there's still a sweet chunk of summer left to enjoy, and with it, a massive bounty of movies, TV shows, music, and more. There's the supervillain shenanigans of Suicide Squad, the latest dispatch from the long-reunited Dinosaur Jr., Amy Schumer's memoir, and much more. Read on for 52 suggestions on other indoor ways to occupy yourself during the dwindling days of beach weather.
