Austin, TX Show March 15th
There’s been too much going on to keep up with the blog for a bit! So here’s the scoop: We’re performing Sister Lovers in Austin on the evening of March 15, as part of the SXSW Music Festival. It’s going to be at the beautiful Paramount Theater and will be preceded by the world premiere of “Nothing Can Hurt Me: The Big Star Story,” a full-length documentary about the band. See the trailer below and visit the film’s website. Check the SXSW website for exact times.
Continuing with the idea of “local honey” for this, we’ll be joined by the Tosca String Quartet, Austin’s own exemplary ensemble, as well as some of the finest local wind and percussion players. The essential band–Jody Stephens, Mike Mills, Mitch Easter, myself (Chris Stamey), Charles Cleaver, Jeff Crawford, Django Haskins, Matt McMichaels, and Brett Harris–will be there, of course, along with a great list of guest singers . . . more on that a bit later.
We’ve revamped some of the arrangements and added some new tunes. We can’t wait. For press inquiries for this show please contact Heather West with Western Publicity.
And (wait for it) . . . we’re also going to London, a concert at the amazing Barbican Theater, on May 28, then hop over to Barcelona for a featured performance as part of the Primavera Sound Festival.
