Soul Power @ The Modern and OUR FIRST CONTEST!

It's on! Soul Power, the documentary of the Zaire '74 music festival that took place in Kinshasa in conjunction with the October 1974 "Rumble In the Jungle" between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, screens at the Modern Art Museum August 28-30. The film stars James Brown, B.B. King, Bill Withers, and Celia Cruz, among a host of others. Where else can you see JB and Muhammad Ali in the same motion picture?

We're gonna make sure and be there, and through the generosity of Magnolia At the Modern, we have two tickets to give away to the reader who can answer the following three questions:

1) What label was James Brown recording for at the time of the Zaire '74 concert, and what was his current hit?

2) What country was Zaire a former colony of, and by what name is the nation that was Zaire known today?

3) Who was the president of Zaire at the time of the "Rumble In the Jungle," and for how many years did he remain in office?

Email your answers to by midnight August 7th, and I'll announce the winner on August 8th.

Oh, and by the way...It Might Get Loud, a history of the electric guitar through the eyes of the Edge, Jimmy Page, and Jack White, screens September 18-20, so get ready.
