Posted some proof of concept that I did for Sourcebits. Attached two versions as real pixels:
User can go through the list of events and switch easily to map view. The dark rounded shape is for current day and the red stroked rounded shape is for the days that already have scheduled events.
If user pulls down on the collapsed calendar view, he/she opens an expanded view, from where they can quickly go through all days in one month or slide between months and add new event.
