Big Star at South By Southwest

Posted by on March 22nd, 2012 with 0 Comments

Last week, we brought “Sister Lovers” to the Paramount Theater in Austin for SXSW. It was a grand night that also featured a showing of the new Big Star documentary Nothing Can Hurt Me: The Big Star Story.

The players included Jody Stephens, Mike Mills, Mitch Easter, Chris Stamey, Charles Cleaver, Jeff Crawford, Django Haskins, Matt McMichaels, and Brett Harris as well as local Austin artists the Tosca String Quartet. Some of the vocalists who helped pay tribute were Jon Auer & Ken Stringfellow of The Posies, Peter Case, The Dunwells, Skylar Guydasz, Bret Harris and Django Haskins.
