The Charlatans' Tim Burgess started hosting interactive listening parties for classic albums on Twitter -- where the artists who made them would share stories about the album in real time as fans listened along -- back in the early days of COVID-19 lockdown as a fun way to use the extra time many of us seemed to have. The idea's had serious legs, though, and Tim is just about to host his 500th listening party.

The upcoming schedule includes video director and frequent The Cure collaborator Tim Pope talking about his various videos (and hopefully his single "I Want to Be a Tree") on 10/24, Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets's Live At The Roundhouse (10/25), Buzzcocks' Another Music in a Different Kitchen (10/30), EMF's Schubert Dip (10/30), MGMT's Little Dark Age (10/31), The Twilight Sad's Nobody Wants to Be Here & Nobody Wants to Leave (10/31), Teenage Fanclub's Songs From Northern Britain (11/1), Beachwood Sparks' Beachwood Sparks (11/7), Scritti Politti's Cupid & Psyche 85 (11/8), The Pretty Things' Parachute (11/9), The Delgados' The Great Eastern (11/8), Mercury Rev's Yerself Is Steam (11/10),  and The Cribs' new album Night Network (11/19).

If you missed participating in one of the hundreds of previous listening parties -- like The Breeders' Pod or Belle & Sebastian's The Boy With the Arab Strap -- they're all archived on the website and you can "play" them in real time so you can listen and read along at your convenience.
