KDHX and Euclid Records present the St. Louis debut of "Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me" at The Stage at KDHX. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Jody Stephens, founding member of Big Star, and closing out the night, members of Magnolia Summer, The Incurables, and The Feed will perform a set of Big Star songs, with Jody Stephens sitting in on drums.
BIG STAR: NOTHING CAN HURT ME is a feature-length documentary about legendary Memphis band Big Star. While mainstream success eluded them, Big Star’s three albums have become critically lauded touchstones of the rock music canon. A seminal band in the history of alternative music, Big Star has been cited as an influence by artists including REM, The Replacements, Belle & Sebastian, Elliot Smith and Flaming Lips, to name just a few. With never-before-seen footage and photos of the band, in-depth interviews and a rousing musical tribute by the bands they inspired, BIG STAR: NOTHING CAN HURT ME is a story of artistic and musical salvation.
Doors open at 7:00 and the film starts at 7:30. Tickets are available online.
