Light + Sound Machine Presents... THE T.A.M.I. SHOW!
Co-presented by The Belcourt Theatre & Third Man Records
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 18th
DJ's at 6pm / Screening at 8pm
Tickets available HERE.
Produced in 1964, THE T.A.M.I. SHOW (an acronym for Teenage Awards Music International) is a legendary concert film showcasing some of the biggest acts of the period, including Chuck Berry, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Lesley Gore, Smokey Robinson, and a “Battle of the Bands” between James Brown with his Famous Flames and The Rolling Stones. Rarely seen for decades due to rights issues, THE T.A.M.I. SHOW was shot live over two days at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on videotape, using the then-innovative Electronovision (and then transferred to film).
The Light and Sound Machine screening will be projected on 16 millimeter film and takes place in the Blue Room. Doors open at 6 p.m. with drinks available and Third Man Records’ DJs. The film starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 ($8 for Belcourt members) and can be purchased in advance at www.belcourt.org, or at the door the night of the screening at Third Man. A limited edition print will be available as well for $15.
