Back in December, you might recall that I was urging you to catch the live performances of Big Star's "Third/Sister Lovers." Fortuitously, there's an encore performance tonight in Chapel Hill. It's a pretty elaborate production and there's no telling when or if they'll stage it around these parts again, so check it out.
Before the show, there will be a multimedia program this afternoon on the life and works of the late great Jim Dickinson, producer of "Third/Sister Lovers" and a legendary Memphis raconteur; plus some yackety-yack about the album and the project from ringleader Chris Stamey and friends. That starts at 2 p.m. at UNC-Chapel Hill's Wilson Library. More details on that are here.
ADDENDUM (3/4/11): "Holocaust."
SECOND ADDENDUM (3/29/11): New York performance.
