I find that style hard to maintain. What is the advantage over multi-line strings?
rows = self.executesql('''
select cities.city, state, country
from cities, venues, events, addresses
where cities.city like %s
and events.active = 1
and venues.address = addresses.id
and addresses.city = cities.id
and events.venue = venues.id
