Empty closing div at the beginning of loop surrounding a grouping

I don't even know what to search for, so what I've tried is not much since I'm stumped.

This is the loop, getting the month name and then grouping the events inside that month. The comment //* Close the Div : PROBLEM is where the issue is. The code does what it's supposed to do, but there is an empty div before the list.

if ( have_posts() ) : 

    $current_month = '';

    while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();

            if( $current_month != eo_get_the_start( 'm' ) ) :

                    $month = eo_get_the_start('F Y');

                    //* Close the Div : PROBLEM this is where it echos an empty closing div before first month name
                    echo '</div><!-- /events-by-month -->'; 

                    //* Start new group
                    echo '<h3 class="event-month" id="'. $month . '">' . $month . '</h3>';

                    //* Open div around the events in this month
                    echo '<div class="events-by-month" style="border:1px solid green">'; //* inline style so I can see


                $current_month = eo_get_the_start('m');

                eo_get_template_part( 'eo-loop-single-event' );


    //* Genesis Numbered Pagination


        echo '<p>'. __( 'No Events', 'joyful' ) . '</p>';

Your while loop is going to initially loop once and echo out the closing tag before an initial opening tag has been echoed.

Simply checking that $current_month is not empty should fix it.

echo !empty($current_month) ? '</div><!-- /events-by-month -->' : null;
