I no longer get the AlertDialog because I now have a gig in my area. I noticed tapping Map in the ActionBar and then tapping List reloads the list to show just the one gig in my area. Now I discovered another bug. Every time I hold my finger on the screen and drag down to refresh, it duplicates the item in the list. The behavior should be to recheck current gigs and reload the list. Only after changing to another activity (or swapping out the fragments) and coming back to reload the data, does the list get corrected.
