The Big Star Documentary Is Coming to the Loft

Posted By on Fri, Jun 21, 2013 at 1:30 PM

I'm a sucker for movies about music, so between Rock Around the Loft (rock films every Wednesday in July, including The Last Waltz, Stop Making Sense and Urgh! A Music War) and the One Hit Wonders series of new-to-Tucson documentaries, I'm basically assuming I'm going to spend (at least) two nights each week in a seat at the Loft.

However, the real highlight of the month will be the opportunity to see Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, last year's documentary about one of my favorite bands of all time and one of those great band/bad luck stories you hear sometimes in the history of rock. Seriously, if you haven't heard the three albums the band released in the early 70's, they really could change your life. They're the power pop/rock band every power pop and rock band you've ever enjoyed loved (just watch the trailer and see the names singing Big Star's praises) and there's a good reason. Remember how excited everyone was about Rodriguez and the Searching for Sugarman documentary? This story's less weird in some ways, but just as tugging at the heart-strings, plus (nothing personal to Rodriguez and his fans) the music is better.

Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me shows at the Loft, Saturday, July 13 at 7:00 pm.
