“Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by out on four forty one like waves crashing on the beach, and for one desp’rate moment there he crept back in her memory. God, it’s so painful when something that’s so close Is still so far out of reach.” – American Girl

On 02.10.17 we lost one of the great journeymen of Americana music, Tom Petty. With the chops of a seven-night-a-week bar band, and the sleepy eyes of the permanently stoned, Petty and his Heartbreakers recounted our suburban tales through music sharp with pop barbs and wry observations

But Tom always built his songs for good times, big riffs and and fist-pumping heartland rock, American new wave, west coast psychedelia, garage and rock ’n’ roll.

The 3 Bitches, promoters and friends Rah, Natasha and Samantha, decided to celebrate the life and music of Tom Petty gathering friends and comrades in Berlin’s indie music community for a one-night only tribute show.

The houseband features rhythm section Rah (The Erinyes) and Anastis (Baron Anastis), Miss Natasha Enquist on accordion and vocals, Samantha Wareing (Wasp Summer) and Bryan Grayson on guitars and vocals.

Guest performers from the indie folk, rock and electro scenes include Steven Paul Taylor, Holger Hagmueller, Michael Brinkworth, Eric Eckhart, Kidaphex1975, Adam Sandahl (Pleasuredome), Helen Jahn and David Hawkins.
