Big Star to release live EP from Alex Chilton tribute gig

When we get a request from Jody Stephens of Big Star, we do what he asks, because he’s Jody Stephens from Big Star. ‘Nuf said.

He sent along this video clip from his last performance with Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow as Big Star, in May 2010 in Memphis. The show was a tribute to guitarist Alex Chilton with special guests including John Davis from Superdrag, who helped out on this version of “Don’t Lie to Me.” It’s one of three songs featuring Davis (“When My Baby’s Beside Me” and “In the Street” are the others), and all three are part of a 7-inch vinyl EP due June 21 on Ardent.

Man, we miss Big Star. Reminisce with us via this review of Chilton’s last-ever performance in November 2009 in Brooklyn.

    Great news! I’m assuming you mean “In The Street,” though, and not Springsteen’s “Out In The Street.” Haha.
