Something From A Dream: Providence Remembers Tom Petty

Tom Petty

For a certain generation, few things will ever be as terrifying as the nightmare video for Tom Petty’s “Don’t Come Around Here No More.” Petty was a Florida rocker for the early MTV generation, putting as much effort into his clips – “Running Down A Dream,” “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” – as he did into his songs. Though he died this summer, his spirit lives on at this benefit for Girls Rock RI. There will be full sets by six bands (Dylan Sevey & The Gentlemen, The Quahogs, Josh Buckley, The ‘Mericans, Excitable Boys, Sorry Wrong Person) plus performances by ten other acts. I’m not even sure how that’s possible for a show that starts at 8:30 because the line-up sounds like an all day festival.
