It’s a Two-Tom Day Today: Petty & Rush, One’s in the Spotlight and One’s On Stage; The New Wildflower Releases, Friday, October 2, 2020

Here we are in The Mermaid Lounge on day two of Tom Petty month. We have a Two-Tom Day today. Seriously good programming.

Tom Rush plays Mountain Stage, Charelston WV – 2009

Here’s today’s Two-Tom line-up:

11:00 a.m. The New Releases: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers & All The Rest NEW!

Very simply, the five latest releases on the way to the new Tom Petty compilation (available October 16), Wildflowers & All The Rest. We thought that would be appropriate today. You can learn more about this release here and on Tom Petty’s official web site. We will repeat this at 11:00 p.m.

By the way, there are ‘home demos’ here that are release worthy for most people.

3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Tom Rush

Another favorite here in The Mermaid Lounge. And by the way, still kicking ass.

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Coleman Coliseum, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, June 10, 1995

This is one of my personal favorites, particularly because of the song selection. But hell, they’re great live. Always have been. You can love their albums, but you can really appreciate their talent when they are live.

Come on, people. Get with the program. Today.
