Happening: Black Tambourine Listening Party

There is no such thing as a bad time to listen to Black Tambourine in a room full of booze with the chance of winning free records.  And just in case you are unaware of what I’m talking about:

Though they only released a handful of songs during their two-year lifetime, Black Tambourine has been hugely influential in the world of indie music. Conceived of as an explicitly pop band at a time when such bands were pretty rare in America, Black Tambourine wore their influences on their sleeves: The Jesus & Mary Chain, of course, but also folks like Phil Spector, Smokey Robinson, Love, The Ramones, Shop Assistants, The Pastels, 14 Iced Bears, Orange Juice and the list goes on.
