PHOENIX -- The Heard Museum is going rock and roll Friday night as it hosts its First Friday event called “Rockabilly at the Heard.”

People can learn to swing dance, rope a fake steer, change their hair, and enjoy locally crafted cupcakes. The free event runs from 6 to 10 p.m.

The Heard Museum is located at 2301 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix. Exit at the Encanto stop on the Metro Light Rail.

The Blue Bird Pinups, a Native American and female-owned business organization that preserves the look of the 1940s and 1950s eras, will host a pinup style contest with prizes donated by La Loca Magazine.

A retro hair bar will be provided by Salon Embellish for a suggested donation of $10.

Learn to swing, swing, swing with professional dance instructor Isaiah Meders to the tunes of Pat Roberts and the Heymakers.

A cupcake walk with delicious baked goods will be provided by four local bakeries.  

Try your luck at roping a plastic stationary steer in the South Courtyard. It's harder than you may think.
