DIRECTOR: STEVE BINDER

Melissa Anderson, the senior film critic for the Village Voice, to introduce the 7pm screening.

It stands for the Teenage Awards Music International Show, captured live onstage at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, and listen to this stacked lineup: The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Smokey Robinson, and The Rolling Stones, who, as headliners, had the unenviable task of following James Brown, after The Hardest Working Man in Show Business delivers one of the greatest performances ever put on film. A concert documentary innovator and, in terms of the ridiculous raw talent captured on camera, still unparalleled.

The T.A.M.I. Show is screening as part of the series 4th of July at Metrograph: The Concert Film and Metrograph A to Z.
