On October 2, 2017, the world mourned as the sad news of Tom Petty’s death spread. Local musicians felt this loss deeply, as Petty has been an undeniable force in American music and a noted influence on so many writers. He had just wrapped up his farewell tour playing his final shows only two weeks earlier. Local musicians wanted to come together to celebrate his legacy and impact on our own music and lives.
Local bands Lost Coast and Wilder cooked up a great format, compiled a huge master song list, and recruited some of the best local talent to fill the bill. This Saturday, February 24th at The Southgate House Revival come witness Tom Petty’s Last Dance! The show starts promptly at 8 and it is complete with production and special touches that are sure to make the night memorable.
