Summit County events calendar: 10/17/13

The Caravan of Thieves will invade The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco on Saturday. Like many families, this one started with a married couple — Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni (guitar, vocals, various percussive “instruments”) — writing and performing as a duo. In the spring of 2008, Fuzz and Carrie extended their family to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman Brian Anderson completing their colorful vision. Since then, the four of them ran away from home and never looked back. The show starts at 9 p.m., and tickets are $7. For more information, visit
