HEY TORONTO!!!! WIN SOME DOUBLE PASSES TO TAKE IN A MOMENT IN MUSIC HISTORY WITH ‘WATTSTAX’

Quite frankly there are concert films…and then there are concert films…

Easily in the conversation for the greatest concert film of all time, Wattstax is the chronicle of what has basically been dubbed as the ‘Black Woodstock’; a 1972 Los Angeles event that was attended by over 100,000 concert goers.  A benefit show organized by Stax Records to commemorate the 1965 Watts riots it became so much more as it captures a very salient moment in time during the 1970’s marking both a celebration because ‘black is beautiful’ and a reminder of the work that was yet to be done.

Married with a booming soundtrack that was so relevant to the times, Wattstax is the kind of film that simply demands the big screen experience and thanks to our friends at the Royal Cinema who are screening this as a part of their Royal Stompbox series on Friday February 23rd at 8PM, we got some double passes for you so you can witness this, the way it was meant to be seen on the big screen .  Your chance to win simply couldn’t be easier.

E-mail us at contests@intheseats.ca with your full name, ‘Wattstax’ in the subject header and the answer to the following question.  Give us the name of one of the Stax Records performers who appears in the film.

The contest is open to all residents of Toronto, one entry per household please and it will run until Wednesday February 21st at 11:59AM.  All winners will be informed via e-mail after the contest has closed and placed on a guest list at the door for entry into the screening.
