Event: Free Screening of The TAMI Show
Date and Time: Thursday, August 26, 7 PM
Location: Community Room, Oswego Public Library, 120 East 2nd Street
The Oswego Film Group (OFG) presents a free screening at 7 PM on Thursday, August 26 of the legendary concert film, The TAMI Show. A discussion will follow the screening.
A rock and roll revue, the TAMI (Teenage Awards Music International) Show featured an amazing, diverse lineup of a dozen acts, including the Rolling Stones, James Brown, the Supremes, and the Beach Boys. The film had a brief theatrical run but a complicated afterlife kept the movie out of circulation for years, its inaccessibility just adding to its legend. Here at last is a chance to see this October 1964 concert, â€œa remarkable snapshot of a wide-open moment in pop music, just as the Beatlesâ€™ arrival was changing the rulesâ€ (The New York Times, March 19, 2010).
The Oswego Film Group (formed in 2005) is dedicated to bringing quality independent film to Oswego and fostering a community of interested filmgoers. For more information on the film, please visit OFGâ€™s blog:
