About a week after the death of Tom Petty, among America’s greatest rockers, some local bands are honoring the legend with a tribute concert.
Bands will play at Two Birds Taphouse, 52 Powder Springs St. right off the Marietta Square, starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday. The concert was announced by the Square’s Facebook page on Wednesday.
The bands shouldn’t want for tunes to play considering the staggering amount of hits Florida-born Petty created in his 66 years.
From a nascent nasally rocker in Gainesville, Petty bounded across the country, onto radios throughout the world and eventually into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 as Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.
