Last night Petty Fest took over Webster Hall, with Cabin Down Below band and friends doing Tom Petty covers that sometimes sounded better than the original. Surprise guests Cyndi Lauper, Fred Armisen, Albert Hammond Jr., Fabrizio Moretti and John McEnroe turned up. And who knew Alia Shawkat of Arrested Development could sing? Other musicians who covered Petty's hits included Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner, Father John Misty, Har Mar Superstar, Nicole Atkins, Andrew W.K. and Karen Elson. Jameson sponsored the event, with 100% of the ticket sales benefiting the charity Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. A different lineup will perform at Petty Fest in Los Angeles on November 14th and 15th.
