Last week, we told you about a KILLER show in NYC paying tribute to the legendary Memphis rock-pop-soul act Big Star. The band’s leader, Alex Chilton, passed away last March of a heart attack. He didn’t have health insurance at the time.
Band: Jody Stephens, Mike Mills, Mitch Easter, Will Rigby, Chris Stamey
Strings & Horns: Lost in the Trees
Guest Vocalists: Norman Blake, Michael Stipe, Matthew Sweet, Django Haskins, Bret Harris, Mike Mills, Tift Merrit, Ira Kaplan
Big Star Third Live Mason Hall at Baruch Performing Arts Center
55 Lexington Ave, New York NY 10010
Since Chilton’s passing, there have been a number of benefit shows and tribute nights involving the remaining members of Big Star, and a cavalcade of musical friends. Saturday’s show is looking like the biggest yet.
