We almost forgot to update you on our last Baby Mountain concert event, in which we raised $162 for the Wounded Warrior Project. Quite a show indeed, we told you, and told you again for good measure, this wasn’t a show to be missed, honestly, such an incredible night for sure!

Join the Dakota State University College of Arts & Sciences and the Madison Area Arts Council as we welcome the Americana sounds of ‘Baby Mountain’, featuring acoustic musicians Tim Lowly and Karima Walker from Chicago, along with special guest, Madison’s own Nathan Edwards. 

A suggested ticket donation of $5 will directly benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, as we honor Veterans Day.

This all-ages community event will be held at the Tunheim Classroom Building, TCB, on the campus of Dakota State University. Parking is available just off North Egan Avenue, and immediately around the campus.

A great evening was had, as we were excited to welcome back our friends Phantom Balance and Dino Babic to Madison on Halloween night. Dakota State Live Productions (DSU Live) and the Madison Area Arts Council partnered together to bring this past year’s Jazzfest headliner of the ‘Second Stage’ to the Underground at Dakota State University.

Phantom Balance excited the crowd throughout their high-energy set.

A note from Angela Behrends on Wednesday night’s Bat House Party at The BrickHouse:

I’d like to extend special appreciation and thanks to Nathan Edwards and KDSU’s “The Wolf” for fantastic music and mad, mad DJ skills, to our costume judges Susan Conover, Susan Langner, and Jeff Howard, to Chris Francis and Emmeline Elliott of the Madison Area Arts Council, to Eric Stykel, Chris Francis, John Nelson, and Cassie Marie Edwards for donating artwork, and to all of the ART121 students at DSU that contributed their time and design talents! Now THAT’s a community effort!

Together, we raised well over $400, which will go directly to the construction of bat habitats on the campus of Dakota State. Angela will be continuing to work on the project in the coming months, we’ll be sure to share the latest as this project continues forward.

Join us for our next great event at The BrickHouse with “Bat House Party”, as we join forces with Dakota State University and instructor Angela Behrends to raise funds to purchase actual bat houses, to be placed on the grounds of the college.

This costume party fundraiser will feature one-of-a-kind original art postcards and hand-made masks created by DSU art students which will be for sale for $20 each, with proceeds benefiting the project. In addition, the Madison Area Arts Council will host additional bat-themed art created by DSU art faculty and local area artists, which will also be available to purchase in support of the project.

A $5 donation at the door is suggested, which will benefit the project as well. Awards will be given for best costumes, refreshments will be served, and a good time will be had by all.
