So in Part One of a-still-to-be-determined-how-many-total-parts-there-will be, The House “She Leads Series” … we’re warmly welcoming business coach Janey Stahl to have a seat on the pink couch & teach us how to BE THE BOSS BABE EVERYONE WANTS TO WORK FOR!

The Steel Wheels @ CSPS Hall
Oct 23 @ 7:00 pm
The Steel Wheels @ CSPS Hall

Simultaneously familiar and fresh, the Steel Wheels bring a singular energy to every note they play, and sparkling craft to each song. This potent combination, paired with a robust tour calendar, have made the veteran band hands-down favorites of fans and peers alike. From their base in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, TSW have played some of the most prestigious festivals, listening rooms, and clubs in the world, cementing a reputation as one of the top independent bands on the scene today.

While 2017’s stunning studio album, Wild As We Came Here, was still ringing in the air, the band highlighted their legendary live performances with the release of two in-concert EPsEver ambitious, and not content to let moss grow under their feet, they then returned to the woods of Maine and the studio of Sam Kassirer, producer of Wild, to record a new album. Over the Trees, released in July 2019, has been praised by No Depression for “expanding the band’s musical boundaries, incorporating new rhythmic textures that accentuate the group’s strengths, and giving the material a more dynamic sound … propulsive, gorgeous, complex.”

In keeping with their relentless growth, the quartet has also become a quintet, adding percussionist Kevin Garcia to the longtime lineup of Brian Dickel, Trent Wagler, Jay Lapp, and Eric Brubaker. The year 2019 also marks the seventh instance of the band’s signature event, the Red Wing Roots Music Festival. Held in Natural Chimney Park in Mt. Solon, Virginia, the annual celebration of roots music and the outdoors hosts a dazzling musical lineup and a wide array of non-musical activities, including organized bike rides, morning yoga, and hikes, allowing fans to take full advantage of the beautiful landscape of the park and the surrounding area.

AAMI October Documentary Series @ African American Museum of Iowa
Oct 24 @ 5:00 pm
AAMI October Documentary Series @ African American Museum of Iowa

Museums have, more recently, been challenged with lending a voice to issues of social justice (and injustice). The African American Museum of Iowa recognizes this charge and understands the Museum’s growing role in its responsibility to demonstrate history’s direct impact on our present societal culture and climate. By screening these important documentaries, we are opening the door to honest dialogue, discovery, reflection, and even resolution. Documentaries can offer authentic and untold stories that can serve to fill gaps, expose truth and give a deeper meaning. We hope you will join us at the Cedar Rapids Public Library for these real conversations.

Each screening will be followed by a Q&A session facilitated by a community leader.

Doors open at 5 PM. Screenings will begin at 5:30.

👉🏾 Please visit http://bit.ly/AAMIdocseries for film descriptions and further details.
