Back on June 30th I had a real keeper of a musical and social experience when I took part in this show at Summerstage:

BIG STAR’S THIRD: AN ORCHESTRATED LIVE PERFORMANCE OF THE LEGENDARY ALBUM

Big Star’s Third is a full performance of the iconic album by an astonishing who’s who of rock music featuring famed vocalists including Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile,Marshall Crenshaw, Pete Yorn, Reeve Carney( Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark), Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev) and Becky Stark (Lavender Diamond), supported by an all-star band including Mike Mills (R.E.M.) on bass; Mitch Easter (Let’s Active), Chris Stamey (The dB’s), Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star) andRichard Lloyd (Television) on guitar; Dale Baker (Sixpence None the Richer) playing percussion; Charles Cleaver on keys; Django Haskins (The Old Ceremony),Brett Harris and Skylar Gudasz on harmony, original Big Star member Jody Stephens on drums, all backed with a twenty-piece chamber orchestra including famed cellist Jane Scarpantoni, and the Uptown Horns.

On this week’s Bottomless Pit I’ll attempt to re-cap the experience with lots of great music from many of the above including Big Star themselves!!

Please join me on WFUV Public Radio, Saturdays at 10 PM EST.
