Black Tambourine Listening Party Action Pix

A listening party is hard work. You have to stand by
the turntable for nearly 20 minutes waiting to play the b side.

Another one of those events where 2 hours before the start everything sort of slips apart. I'm over it people. The show goes on, and everything gels. Beer and really good music helps, so do a few friends. So goes the nightlife. We had fun. Extra thanks to Volume 1 Brooklyn for joining us.

Sign up sheet for the free records and a diet coke. Party hard.

Faith (my best vinyl club friend) framed by 2 smiling faces.

Jason (Vol 1 host) and Andy (Cake Shop business man). Both like Slumberland.

Winner: Nick. He's from DC area, which made him
extra excited about the BT album.

Winner: Esy. Couldn't be more surprised.

Winner: Amanda. Don't think these people were here for
the listening party per se. They all agreed they liked the album
and signed up regardless.

Winner: Aaron. to quote Aaron upon winning, "This is the best
thing that's happened to me."

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.

Vol. 1 Brooklyn is a culture blog for the literary-minded. The site was created and is maintained by Jason Diamond with help from several regular and semi-regular contributors.

Monday Night (sometimes other nights) Vinyl Club is New York City's finest “you bring, you spin it” open deck DJ party hosted by DJ Doppler (Brett of The Mugs) & DJ Okay (Naomi, Cantaloupe Alone).
