Thank You Friends, Big Star's Third Live...And More 

When: Fri., April 21, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $16

In 2010, the dBs' Chris Stamey led a Chapel Hill tribute concert honoring the legacy of power-pop cult heroes Big Star's legendary album Third, with a band that included Mitch Easter (Let's Active), lone Big Star survivor Jody Stephens, and many others. That one-off event launched a string of international appearances by the ensemble, celebrating a band that never got its due the first time around. Fast-forward to April 2016, when Stamey, Stephens, Easter, Mike Mills, Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Robyn Hitchcock, and more mounted another all-star tribute to Big Star's most bewitching album in L.A. Now, the film that captured that West Coast concert is bringing things full circle with a North Carolina premiere, which coincides with the release of the DVD and CD. After the screening, tribute participants Stephens, Stamey, Django Haskins, Skylar Gudasz, and Jeff Crawford will participate in a Q and A session, followed by a live performance. It's a great way to keep the legacy of an utterly sui generis album alive. —Jim Allen
