Trying to build a simple event filtering system with categories (Seg2Cat) and dates. This is my current approach (which does not work):

{exp:low_events:entries channel="events_submitted|events_internal" category="{last_segment_category_id}" date="{last_segment}" dynamic="no" parse="inward"} 

I did manually place a date in the parameter which also did not work.

{exp:low_events:entries channel="events_submitted|events_internal" category="{last_segment_category_id}" date="2014-06" dynamic="no" parse="inward"}

Ideally, I'd like to be able to achieve these results with just the one tag:

Is it possible for them to play together? Or should I rethink the approach? Perhaps use Low Search?

For the first URL, you won't get a valid category ID, as {last_segment_category_id} points to the last segment: the date. You'd need to get creative with simple conditionals and preload replace vars. Something like this:

{if segment_4 != ''}
  {preload_replace:pre_category="{segment_3_category_id}"}
{/if}

{preload_replace:pre_category="{last_segment_category_id}"}

{exp:low_events:entries
  category="{pre_category}"
  date="{last_segment}"
  ...
}

Note that this approach only works when using simple conditionals for the preload replace vars.
