The Best Fest's Petty Fest, Dylan Fest, and Stones Fest are New York tradition. They've taken the fests elsewhere too--like Austin, Los Angeles, and San Francisco--and this year, Petty Fest is coming to Chicago for an event at Metro on April 23. It'll be hosted by The Cabin Down Below Band with special guests Jakob Dylan, Alison Mosshart (Kills, Dead Weather), John Stirratt (Wilco), Eric Pulido (Midlake), members of The Wild Feathers, Brendan Benson, Butch Walker, Cory Chisel, Ruby Amanfu, Danny Masterson, Erika Wennerstrom (Heartless Bastards), Jesse Malin, Dave Davidson (Maps and Atlases), Adriel Denae, Kelly Hogan, Lukas Nelson, Nikki Lane, Robert Elis, Butterfly Boucher, "and many more surprise guests." Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (3/14) at noon CST.
