The Garage Concert Series proudly presents American rock band The Districts with very special guest Trap Kit on Monday, March 19 at 7pm at The Garage.
The Districts are a band that exists in this moment. They're described by close friends (and girlfriends) as a well-oiled machine, filthily cult like, and also “normal dudes.”
Molly’s artwork gathers around the central idea that we, as human beings, know darkness and are broken, but are fundamentally made to see—and to be—light.

Morning Fill Up, the conversation series at The Garage, welcomes Paula Kerger, president and CEO of PBS, on Friday, October 27 at 7am. The event is free. Reservations are required.
In a conversation with Matt Ehlman of The Numad Group, she will talk about leadership, storytelling, and the role media plays in our country today. She’ll also give us an inside look at the nation’s largest non-commercial media organization in the United States.
Paula joined PBS in March 2006 and is the longest serving president and CEO in PBS history. During her tenure, she has made particularly strong commitments to the arts, news and public affairs, high-quality educational content for children and the classroom, diversity, and the use of new digital platforms to bring public media into the lives of all Americans.
Under her leadership, PBS has been growing its audiences across genres and platforms. In the course of a year, 82% of all television households in America watch PBS, and nearly 70% of all children watch PBS.
Among her accomplishments are the pop-culture phenomenon “Downton Abbey” on Masterpiece, Ken Burns’s The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, the original American drama series “Mercy Seat,” the documentary Hamilton’s America about the Broadway smash hit musical, and acclaimed children’s programs such as “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” and “Curious George.”
In addition, Paula led the historic launch of the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel in January 2017, ensuring that PBS’ educational programming can reach children anytime and anywhere through local stations.
She is a director of the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and chair of the board of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History. She is regularly included on Hollywood Reporter’s “Women in Entertainment Power 100,” an annual survey of the nation’s top women executives in media. In 2005, she was named to the Women’s Forum, an organization of 300 leading women in New York’s arts and business scenes.
Morning Fill Up is a series of public gatherings intended to inspire and engage members of The Garage, as well as residents around western South Dakota, to put their creative energies into action for the betterment of the entire community. Since the inception of Morning Fill Up, creators of the morning talk have sought to bring guests who can speak to timely, important issues that impact residents of the region--and people across the country.
Morning Fill Up was created by The Numad Group, and is sponsored by Numad and The Bush Foundation.

Join us for a one-of-a-kind educational workshop, presented by Katie Parker, Bright Pink educational ambassador and breast cancer survivor, that educates women and men on the basics of breast and ovarian health, provides concrete strategies for living a proactive lifestyle and offers tools to assess your personal risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
Mayor Steve Allender's office will be presenting a proclamation for Breast Cancer Awareness month before the workshop begins!
Bright Pink is on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. They target 52 million women between the ages of 18-45, as well as those who love and support them. The focus is on health, rather than cancer, in order to inspire women to practice prevention. By implementing programs, initiatives and partnerships, they are able to reach women in their daily lives and providers in their daily practice.
