Big Star Tribute Back on Tap 

A planned tribute album to Memphis underground-rock pioneers Big Star that was first slated to be released in 1999 will finally hit the racks this spring. Due May 23rd, on Koch Records, the album, titled Big Star, Small World, will feature covers of Big Star songs from several alt-rock notables, including Whiskeytown, the Afghan Whigs, and Teenage Fanclub. What we can’t wait to hear: Wilco’s take on the classic adolescent ballad “Thirteen.” Big Star will next grace a local stage Friday, May 5th at the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival.
