Sticking around the city for a stay-cation? Well, seems like there are a lot of good sales and some cool events to hit, like the Petty Fest. A nice line up of bands such as The Mooney Suzuki, The Strokes, Little Joy, Lemonheads and Fountains of Wayne. It’s an homage to Tom Petty, but you never know if the man himself will show up!
