Members of Spoon, Arcade Fire, Superchunk Talk Songwriting and Perform at SXSW Panel

Big Star's Jody Stephens also showed up for a heartbreaking performance of "Thirteen"

Back in March, Britt Daniel of Spoon, Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, and Superchunk’s Mac McCaughan got together for a SXSW panel called “I Wrote That Song” where they discussed their approaches to songwriting and performed a few of their tracks solo acoustic. Big Star’s Jody Stephens was in the audience and was also enlisted for renditions of “Thirteen” and “For You.”

Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws and Marshall Crenshaw also took part in the proceedings. You can watch professional video of the hour-long panel right here.
