Jody Stephens, Ken Stringfellow, Tim Rutili & more to perform Big Star’s ‘Third’ at the Vic Theatre with an orchestra


Big Star‘s iconic Third turns 35 this year(!). In celebration of that, and in memory of the late Alex Chilton, Jody Stephens (Big Star), Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star), Tim Rutili (Califone), Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Chris Stamey (The dBs), Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), Ken Vandermark, and many more will gather at the Vic Theatre on June 28 to perform Third (and some older material) with a twenty-piece chamber orchestra. Tickets for the special Chicago show go on sale this Saturday (5/18) at 10AM CST; this is definitely not one to miss.
