Creating events page to display - similar to demo/video

I've searched the support threads and so far I've only found things that caused me to be a bit more confused and certainly frustrated. I realize it's likely my own learning curve so I'm hoping that you can help... I simply want to be able to create an events page as seen in the demo/video. I've installed the plugin, created an event and can't seem to even find the content.

When looking for http://www.domain.com/events/ I get a 404 page.
When creating an Events page and including (what I think are the correct) shortcodes (the documentation here is really lacking) it says there are no events to display.

Any help would be appreciated - just looking for a simple way to display a series of events on my site - nothing customized or complicated.
