An Accidental Tribute

A few weeks before Alex Chilton passed away, El Perro Del Mar did an affectionate cover of "Blue Moon," a song by Chilton's band Big Star, during her show at Knitting Factory. It was the final song of the evening and Sara Assbring's eyes trembled with emotion as she belted out the song's pleading lyrics.

Our episode of Site & Sound featuring El Perro Del Mar's rendition of "Blue Moon" unexpectedly became a touching, if unintentional, tribute to the late great Chilton.
