Went to the "The Fully Orchestrated Live Premiere of 'Big Star's Third'" Thursday night, December 9th, 2010 at the Cradle. It was a sloppy, manic, touching, wonderful night held together by the Maestro Chris Stamey. Highlights included Big Star founding member Jody Stephens singing "For You", a blistering "Kanga Roo" and a beautiful "Take Care". Whoda thunk the biggest crowd response would go to "Holocaust"? I'm betting last night's show was cleaner and even more crowded.
Well done guys and girls! Here's a little video of Big Star's Jody Stephens from Thursday. A larger version is available at Youtube.
