#3295: Events API location search is case-sensitive

 Priority:  normal          |  Milestone:
Component:  API             |   Keywords:
 When entering a city name in "Events and News" widget in WordPress admin:
 * `Санкт-Петербург` works as expected.
 * `санкт-петербург` returns a `could_not_locate_city` error.

 Both options should return the same results.

 On a related note, it looks like the Events API tries to guess the
 location from the IP address if no other info is provided, but for some
 reason it doesn't always work. For example, there's a
 Saint-Petersburg WordPress Meetup] coming up on Decemper 9, but I've got
 some reports that those in the city only see it in the widget once they
 explicitly enter the city name, and only see WordCamp US otherwise.
