Nonetheless, they produced a body of work of seminal importance to pop and alternative music, influencing major artists like REM, The Replacements, Elliot Smith, Beck, The Flaming Lips.
With a live performance by a Big Star tribute band, featuring Nick Bielli, Kevin Lane, Matt Lane, and Peter Alvanos.

"You really cannot better Big Star. To this day, I can well up with tears listening to that stuff -- it's so beautiful. In a way, I still can't understand why they weren't enormous"
- Peter Holsapple, the dB's
