UB40 feat. Ali Campbell, Astro, and Mickey Virtue

  • How you know them: undoubtedly for their cover of Neil Diamond’s “Red Red Wine”
  • What you might not have known (besides the fact that it’s a Neil Diamond song): the name UB40 is a reference to a British unemployment benefit form, and Ali Campbell is the original lead singer
  • How they settled on that name: it just came to them when they met each other—while standing in the unemployment line
  • How they became known in Great Britain (and left unemployment behind): their strongly leftist politics, multiracial makeup, and close association with The Pretenders
  • Songs they’ve added a reggae beat to (other than “Red Red Wine”): The Temptations’ “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” Al Green’s “Here I Am (Come and Take Me),” and Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love”—their biggest hit to date
  • Their latest album with a political message: 2005’s Who You Fighting For?, which was nominated for the Best Reggae Album in 2006
  • Their latest album of transformative dancehall covers: 2013’s Getting Over the Storm, which set its rhythmic sights on country artists such as George Jones, Willie Nelson, and Randy Travis

The Carolina Theatre of Durham

One of the few original theaters in Durham to remain in operation, The Carolina Theatre has endured more than 85 years of history in its quest to entertain. The venue's main room, Fletcher Hall, rose in popularity during World War II, when soldiers from Camp Butner arrived by bus to watch films on its colossal screen. In the last three decades, ongoing renovations have restored the venue to its original glory while propelling it into contemporary times with the addition of modern accoutrements, including two upstairs movie screens, stage-level dressing rooms, and landing pads on the roof for skateboard hovercrafts.
