Big Star tribute

THANK YOU, FRIENDS: Big Star’s mid-’70s cult classic Third/Sister Lovers will be performed in its entirety Saturday night at Manhattan’s Baruch Performing Arts Center. The all-star cast includes Big Star’s Jody Stephens, R.E.M.’s Mike Mills and Michael Stipe, Chris Stamey and Will Rigby of the dB’s, Matthew Sweet, Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Mitch Easter (Let’s Active), Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo), Tift Merritt and the Lost in the Trees Orchestra. "We have been trying to create a concert piece that can have a life in years to come, trying to keep the spirit of the music and make it come across with the right emotions live," Stamey told Indy Week. "There's something about this record that connects with my generation, and apparently many generations." The ensemble will fill out the set with additional Big Star and Chris Bell songs. Wish we could be there. (3/25a)
