[EventCalendar] get_events and post Content

Any updates here? I tried a different approach, but the Client wasn't
happy with it, so I'm back to trying to get this working.

The format I need is: (no links, everything should display on one page)

MONTH
12 - 13 Event Title & Event Content
14 - 15 Event Title & Event Content
20 Event Title & Event Content

MONTH 2
12 - 13 Event Title & Event Content
14 - 15 Event Title & Event Content
20 Event Title & Event Content

I'm stumped here, any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.
