Big Star's Third Acoustic 

When: Tue., Feb. 15, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-15

After some of the Triangle's best musicians and pop icons tackled an ambitious live performance of Big Star's Third—with an orchestra, drums, electric guitars and keyboards—what could they do for an encore? Unplug for an acoustic performance of one of pop music's best, obviously. While the electric performances at Cat's Cradle in December were mind-altering, expect the acoustic concert to reveal the brilliant musical subtleties that may have been smudged in the bombast. Sparse and haunting, "Holocaust" and "Blue Moon" lend themselves well to stripped-down versions, but it will be interesting to hear the rollicking "You Can't Have Me" and "Kizza Me" in the raw. —Lisa Sorg

With members of Lost in Trees, Old Ceremony, Birds & Arrows, the dB's, NC Symphony, Mayflies USA, the Tomahawks & more plus guests Brett Harris, Sidney Dixon & Greg Humphreys.
