The Box Fops?
On May 28th, some of indie and power pop's elite gathered together to perform Big Star's "Third" in its entirety, plus a whole lot more. Jody Stephens, Jon Auer, Ken Stringfellow, Mitch Easter, Robyn Hitchcock, Brett Harris, Norman Blake, Chris Stamey, Django Haskins, Mike Mills and Ira Kaplan knocked out over two hours of music. Some great stuff and I have it all for a possible post if there is enough interest.
Until then, take a look at this. Here is special guest Ray Davies who performed "Till The End Of The Day" and The Box Tops smash, "The Letter." I'm not exactly sure why I love this so much. I think it has a lot to do with how Ray sings "ANY-WAYYEE- YEAH!"
