It seems there’s no shortage of surprising reunions in the last few days. Just days after the announcement of this years Coachella lineup brought to light the reformation of 90s punk acts At The Drive-In and Refused, the announcement of another festival is bringing back yet another band that seemed lost to the years. Black Tambourine is reforming for several shows as a part of Chickfactor Magazine’s celebration of its 20th year anniversary. Just several years ago Pam Berry — lead singer of Black Tambourine, and co-founder of both Chickfactor Magazine and Slumberland Records — seemed to suggest that a Black Tambourine reunion was out of the question, but come April you’ll be able to catch them in either Washington, D.C. or Brooklyn.

Lilys, Stevie Jackson (of Belle & Sebastian), Frankie Rose, and many others will join Black Tambourine in this five night celebration of the longevity of Chickfactor. The festivities go down April 6th and 7th in DC and April 10th-12th in Brooklyn. Black Tambourine themselves are scheduled to play April 7th at the Artisphere in Arlington, Virginia and April 10th at the Bell House in Brooklyn.
