R.E.M., Big Star Members Join Blitzen Trapper Onstage at SXSW

 

Funny how SXSW works. A friend I tend to see mostly in Austin happens to manage Blitzen Trapper. He suggested their last show of the festival would be well worth attending, and he was right: Peter Buck and Mike Mills from R.E.M.,  and Ken Stringfellow of the Posies and Big Star, sat in on a version of Big Star’s “Feel.”

I wrote it up for Rolling Stone.
