A Celebration of the Life and Music of Tom Petty

TomPetty-388x600-v3

It’s a little morbid to go through the remaining classic rockers to find someone more important to the genre than Tom Petty was—we’ve got McCartney, Angus Young, Dylan will be a big one, especially here with that mural. Anyway, it’s been actually kind of sweet and refreshing that so many who aren’t, say, die hard KQ92 fans have spent the past two days celebrating Petty’s extensive body of work. You can join fans both mega- and casual tonight as local tribute All Tomorrow’s Petty and Frankie Lee bring in a bunch of great MPLS + STPL musicians—Aby Wolf, HALEY, Savannah Smith, Erik Koskinen, John Munson, many more— to honor his music. Even better, all the proceeds go to the much-needed Puerto Rico hurricane relief. 7 PM. $10.Paul Cajun

Tape Freaks Mystery Movie: Tim’s Birthday

tim birthday

We were going to take a break from every month recommending the wildly popular Tape Freaks Mystery Movies, but this month there’s a trilogy of incentives that make it a must see. It’s Tape Freak Tim‘s birthday (expect an even crazier selection), the sequel puts the event is back at the Trylon (now with more and comfier seats so the party won’t sell out), and the story wraps up with the fact we haven’t been able to figure out the mystery from their (not at all helpful) clues. There will be blood, there will be laughs, there will be limited edition prints and free swag! 7 PM. $5.Curt Stanski

Reading + Discussion: Nicole Krauss

Nicole Krauss

According to the New York Times, Nicole Krauss is “one of America’s most important novelists”, so we’re not at all surprised that rockin’ local lit journal Rain Taxi brought her to Twincy to read from and discuss her brand spanking new novel, Forest Dark. The book is a riveting story of parallel transformations and self-discoveries that will a conversation point for any book fans, and you can get your own copy at the reading thanks to Magers & Quinn Booksellers and then have it signed after the presentation. 7 PM. $5 advance.Tracy Oxford
