Hip-hop blues music maker Buck 65 drops his new album Situation at the end of the month. The release is an ode to 1957, a time period the man born Richard Terfry considers world-changing in terms of pop culture (or, as he says in a video on his website, “the year all hell broke loose”) thanks to events like Bettie Page going into self-imposed exile, those iconic plastic pink flamingoes appearing on lawns everywhere, and the delightful Situationist International emerging in Italy.
If that sounds intriguing, you can hear all about it live when Buck 65 performs at The Music Gallery on Thursday night. Courtesy of Warner Music, we have two double passes to give away. The first two people to leave a comment about their favourite 1957 happening will win. So get Wikipedia-ing!
