Photos: Noise Pop + Cafe Du Nord Present: Tom Petty Benefit for Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, and North Bay Area

We were electrified to get to join virtually all of our extended-musical-family onstage to honor the late, great Tom Petty in an impromptu benefit for Puerto Rico + Las Vegas + the North Bay Area fire victims.

Over 40 musicians from a multitude of SF bands, including Goodnight, Texas, Con Brio, The Family Crest, Midnight North, Kelly McFarling and the Home Team, M. Lockwood Porter, We Became Owls, Farallons, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Mike Deni of Geographer, Stelth Ulvang of the Lumineers, Christopher Owens of Curls, John Elliott, Elliott Randall, Misisipi Mike Wolf, and Andrew St. James.

Needless to say, it was one of the most special times we’ve ever been on a stage.

Here’s some pictures capturing Tracey, Chris, and TJ. More here.

Thanks to ND Koster for the photos!
