If the name Joel Gion doesn't ring a bell, it should. For those who have followed the Brian Jonestown Massacre or ever watched the film Dig, you're well aware of Gion. He has a new band, The Dilettantes, harnessing all things good from '60s rock. Their debut album, 101 Tambourines, was released in July on the Los Angeles based Stranger Touch Records. Below is the album teaser video, which features a shit-ton of tambourines rolling down streets in their hometown of San Francisco. We'll include the music video for their track "Ready To Go," along with their most recent tour dates. Enjoy!
