What better way to end the week of our Independence Day than with a stellar night out on a Provo garage rooftop?
Heartbreakers and American Girls: The Songs of Tom Petty
Provo Town Square Parking Terrace, Friday, July 6, 8 p.m., free
The July edition of the monthly summertime Rooftop Concert Series in Provo offers a real treat, courtesy of a batch of musicians recruited by local singer/songwriter Paul Jacobsen and an all-star ad hoc local supergroup. The collection of more than 20 musicians and singers is tackling a set of the woefully under-appreciated (in my opinion) Tom Petty. Expect some greatest Petty hits, some deep album cuts and maybe some of his contributions to the Traveling Wilburys, performed by members of local bands like The Devil Whale, The Moth and the Flame, Fictionist, Neon Trees and more.
