Arts preview: “Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me”

By Matthew Lovett
From the August 8, 2013 edition

Memphis legends Big Star take the big screen at the Wexner in Drew DeNicola's documentary. The story of a band whose three albums received major acclaim yet never received much commercial success is told in this film, with help from interviews with the band, their acquaintances and their fans — many of them today's indie-rock all-stars. After the film, head to Grandview’s Tree Bar for a Big Star musical tribute, which starts at 10 p.m. and costs $5.
