The Event Calendar widget on home page is really spread out...twentytwelve theme


I am working on a wordpress site for the first time. I am using the twenty twelve theme. I have added a plugin called “the events calendar”. It seems to be working fine. The problem I’m having is that on the home page where it appears, the widget has a really big spacing issue. I can’t seem to figure out how to close this space so that each event appears closer to each other (single spaced??). Right now it looks like there is about an inch between each event. Any suggestion as to how I can close the space between events?

Also, I would really like to move the “Upcoming Events” header lower down on the page so it is not jammed right under the buttons in the right sidebar. I have toyed with a number of things with no success.

Any advice would be appreciated…
