Gonna keep this brief. The TAMI Show was filmed over two nights in October, 1964. Itâ€™s a music film that captures some serious performers at the height of their game, others on the rise. Itâ€™s kiiinda the ultimate music video and a legendary piece of cinema because itâ€™s one of the earliest (and finest) examples of this idea. It makes the fact that these deft rock â€˜nâ€™ roll and superhuman soulsters actually shared a stage feel equal parts impossible and inevitable.
Next Thursday, co-presented by the Belcourt Theatre and Third Man Records, Light & Sound Machine will do something a bit different. Theyâ€™re opening shop at 6PM, with DJs on deck, and encouraging an old fashioned pre-show chill â€˜nâ€™ mingle. This wonâ€™t really resemble other movie nights at TMR. This time the plan is to forgo the formalities and keep it relaxed. 20% CHIT CHAT 60% DANCE FLOOR 20% LEGENDARY GROOVES.
