Father John Misty performed at the NYC Petty Fest in October which was a star-studded event that raised $15,000 for the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. Other special guests at the Jameson sponsored event included Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon, Fabrizio Moretti and Albert Hammond, Jr. of the Strokes, Cyndi Lauper, SNL’s Fred Armisen and John McEnroe. As you can guess these stars covered Tom Petty songs and were very successful at raising money for a good cause as they sold-out Webster Hall.

On November 14 and 15th, the Petty Fest heads to Los Angeles for two Hurricane Sandy Relief Benefit Shows at the El Rey Theater.

Petty Fest West participants include Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Nick Valensi and Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes, Sarah Silverman, Members of Eagles of Death Metal, Butch Walker, Matt Sorum & Ace Harper, Jesse Malin, Harper Simon, Nicole Atkins, Har Mar Superstar, Bijou Phillips, Ryan Miller of Guster, Justin Bartha, Jenny O., Rodrigo Amarante, Greg Rogove, Adam Busch, AA Bondy, Petter Ericson Stakee of Alberta Cross and many more surprise guests will cover Tom Petty songs to help those devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

A special limited edition poster of the event has been created and will be available at the shows for a $20 donation.

Black Keys Are Filming A Funny Documentary

YouTube Preview Image

Awhile back I alluded to something that was going to make people happy.  Well, Pitchfork points to a Spin Magazine report that a “Bromantic” Black Keys documentary is  currently being filmed by the Keys’ long-time friend Noah Abrams.

from Spin:

The director of a forthcoming Black Keys documentary says he has no plans to make the rock stars look like, well, rock stars. Instead, the untitled endeavor will be “a buddy comedy with perhaps the greatest soundtrack of all time.”

“A lot of music documentaries spend too much time trying to make people look cool,” says Noah Abrams, filmmaker, photographer, and friend of the band. “I’m fortunate enough to know both these guys pretty well and their relationship is pretty incredible and very funny.”
