Tom Petty pretty much rules. And so does his band, the Heartbreakers. By now you probably know that archivist Bill Shelley collects rare and interesting film clips of bands and musicians, and has screenings at the Avon Theatre from time to time so the public can enjoy them too. Thursday, he'll be showing his Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers collection, spanning the 1970s and '80s. The clips could be live footage, promos, studio rehearsals, TV shows... whatever the format, you'll be hearing some stellar tunes.
