At Petty Fest 11/14/12

Sarah sang Tom Petty’s “Don’t Come Around Here No More” at both days of Petty Fest West November 14-15. The Hollywood Reporter explained, “Backed by the Cabin Down Below Band, primarily comprised of Rolling Stone staffer Austin Scaggs on bass, Alex Levy (ex Epic Records exec) on guitar and Matt Romano (Albert Hammond Jr. Band/Little Joy), the series of such “Fests” (there have also been Dylan Fests and Stones Fests) started as a community jam amongst friends and eventually began performing live with proceeds going to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. Previous Petty Fests were in New York City, but this was the first in Los Angeles. About Sarah’s performance, the Reporter wrote, “Silverman showed impressive vocal chops singing “Don’t Come Around Here No More” in her instantly recognizable nasally cartoonish voice, dressed in daisy dukes and a brown top, ranting over the song’s end such nonsense as, “Don’t come here no more… And I don’t appreciate it… Don’t stop by… F— you… Because I don’t need your shit anymore.” Petty Fest West was held at the El Rey Theater, a venue frequented by Sarah.
