Summer is approaching fast, and many of us are thinking about what we're going to do, where we're going to go, what shows we're going to see, where and when are we going to work, and how much booze we may or may not imbibe. One of the most exciting things to think about is all the music festivals that will be happening. Not so exciting, however, is thinking of how to pay for them.
If you go down the stairs to look at the train cars in the Durham Western Heritage Museum, you may hear the voices of Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, or even Lady Gaga. Don't be alarmed, just follow them past the train cars and on to the "Women Who Rock" exhibit.
At the entrance to the exhibit, you'll be greeted with a mural of vinyl records. Each one features interesting facts about women in music history from the early 20th century to today. It's a good tease for what lies ahead in the rest of the exhibit.
