I’m honored to be playing with Big Star in April! I’m joining heroes, icons, and friends of mine including Jody Stephens, Mike Mills, Jeff Tweedy, Benmont Tench, Chris Stamey, Mitch Easter, the Kronos Quartet and many others over the course of two shows. I’ll be performing with the band at The Fillmore in San Francisco on April 24th, as well as Alex Theatre in Glendale on April 27th.
Many of you know that Big Star has had a huge influence on my music ever since my brother Matt and his roommate Sam Magavern played “September Gurls” for me in college. We spent so much time trying to figure out how to sound like them, and in the process we ended up with a sound of our own.
