The Globe Theatre, Atlin BC

While mainstream success eluded them, legendary Memphis band 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, Wilco, M Ward, Cheap Trick 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, this long over-due documentary is a story of artistic and musical salvation.
