Big Star’s Third, Live

April 27, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM

The legendary Memphis band gained commercial attention long after they broke up, and a bevy of famous musicians cite them as influences. In ‘Thank You, Friends: Big Star’s Third Live,’ fan favorites as well as the entire Third album will be performed by an all star line up that includes the group’s sole surviving member, Jody Stephens, Jeff Tweedy and Pat Sansone of Wilco, Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo, Robyn Hitchcock, Dan Wilson of Semisonic, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Mike Mills of R.E.M., Chris Stamey of the dB’s, Brett Harris, and too many more to name here. Top it off with a full chamber orchestra helmed by the Kronos Quartet. The concert will be filmed as part of a DVD release slated for Spring 2017.
