Not too many local shows sound more fun than this: Some of the Valley's best Americana, country, and rock singers getting together for a full night of Tom Petty songs at Yucca Tap Room. "Petty Thieves" features our old pal Chris Orf, a New Times freelancer, Jim Bachmann, who wowed us with his cover of Alan Jackson's "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow" for The Sun Sessions and local legend Mark Zubia, among others.
And, as always, if it's at the Yucca Tap Room, it's free.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
