Oxford American sponsoring a Big Star tribute worth driving for

The remaining members of Big Star, Jody Stephens and Posies Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow and original bassist Andy Hummel (who left the band just before "Radio City" came out), will offer a tribute concert to Alex Chilton at the Levitt Shell in Memphis Saturday, May 15. The Oxford American is sponsoring.

So far the only semi-big names confirmed are Sondre Lerche and Brendan Benson (Ranconteurs), but I've heard that Paul Westerberg, Tommy Stinson, Mike Mills, Peter Buck, John Stirratt and Matthew Sweet are likely to participate, too.

Advance general admission tickets are $20. VIP is $65.
