Great reunion news that is better than all the other reunion news: Black Tambourine, the beloved D.C. noise-pop group, is reuniting this April for a pair of shows celebrating the 20th anniversary of chickfactor magazine, the very cool publication that (ahem) was founded by two former WCP staffers, Gail O’Hara and Black Tambourine singer Pam Berry. Great news all around!

2012 is also the 21st anniversary of the last time Black Tambourine played a show. The concerts are April 6 and 7 at Artisphere and also feature a ton of other indie-pop groups that should be on your bucket list: Stevie Jackson (of Belle & Sebastian), Honey Bunch, Dot Dash, and Frankie Rose on night one, and Black Tambourine, Lilys, Fan Modine, and Lorelei on night two. Three more chickfactor shows —-one of which features Black Tambourine—-take place a few days later in Brooklyn. Lots more info here.
