Think you know your rock 'n’ roll? The passion, the energy: Where did this fierce and soulful music come from?
Check back to 1950s Memphis, to a town bursting with underground clubs and radio disc jockeys blowing up a wild new sound.
We’re giving away two pairs of tickets to the Tony® Award-winning musical Memphis on its premiere night at the Durham Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, Jan. 24. at 7:30 p.m. The musical captures the emergence of rock 'n’ roll in a time of racial tension and hard change. With forbidden love, passionate musicians and characters fighting for freedom, you’ll get a trip back to the heart of rock without a time machine.
Enter by noon on Jan. 20 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the first rock 'n’ roll song that got you movin’ and shakin’. Winners will be selected at random, and we will mail the tickets to the winners by Jan. 21. Good luck!
