The Jackpot Film and Music Festival kicks off tonight with a screening of the legendary 1964 concert film The T.A.M.I. Show. The lineup for T.A.M.I. (which stands for Teen Age Music International) is among the greatest ever assembled for a single concert—the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye, Chuck Berry, the Supremes, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Jan and Dean... BUT these all pale in comparison to the amazing performance from the hardest working man in show-biz himself, Mr. James Brown:
It's an amazing performance, and an amazing movie, and it screens tonight. Meanwhile, the Jackpot fest's other highlight—and it's fantastic—is You Weren't There: A History of Chicago Punk, and it screens on Monday, April 26. Don't miss either.
The T.A.M.I. Show tonight; Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, 7 pm, $5 suggested donation/free
