When Quentin Tarantino makes a movie, the acclaimed writer/director fills it with all the things he loves. From Reservoir Dogs to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, his films overflow with nods to his influences. And if you don't want to take our word for it, the latter flick even has a making-of documentary that makes it plain.

One place that QT's personal taste always comes through loud and clear: his soundtracks. Just think of Pulp Fiction, and you're instantly thinking of its many great music choices, such as Kool and the Gang's 'Jungle Boogie', Dusty Springfield's 'Son of a Preacher Man' and Urge Overkill's 'Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon'. The same is true for all nine features on his resume. Jackie Brown and Bobby Womack's 'Across 110th Street', Kill Bill and Nancy Sinatra's 'Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)', Inglourious Basterds and David Bowie's 'Cat People (Putting Out Fire)' — the list goes on.

On Thursday, February 6, expect to hear all of the above tunes — plus everything else that has made the soundtracks to Tarantino's films so memorable. Black Bear Lodge is going all in, dedicating the evening to songs from and inspired by QT's movies.

Entry is free — and yes, there'll be a twist competition.
