8:00pm Sunday 8/31
An all-star cast gather to perform Big Star’s iconic third album, Sister Lovers. The band’s imperfect masterpiece is performed with its original string and wind orchestrations by Jody Stephens (Big Star), Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Mitch Easter (Let’s Active), and Chris Stamey (the dB’s). For this orchestrated live performance, the core band is joined by guest vocalists Skylar Gudasz and Brett Harris and a host of VIP special guests to be announced - all backed by a 12-piece local ensemble of strings and brass.
Wow. I still don’t get the point of playing a full classic album live, but. Wow. What a line-up.
