In Space, these Memphis power-pop legends’ overdue studio follow-up to 1978’s revered Third/Sister Lovers, didn’t exactly convince anyone that the Big Star magic was still alive. That said, Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens—along with Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow of the Posies, who joined the band over a decade ago—still kick up an appealing racket onstage. Expect some mention of Rhino’s new four-disc box set. With Philly-based garage-rock hotshot Kurt Vile and Tara Angell.
