Petty Fest returned to NYC last night (10/24) at Webster Hall for a night of Tom Petty covers with a huge lineup of contributors backed by The Cabin Down Below Band. Cyndi Lauper, Fred Armisen, John McEnroe and Alia Shawkat were surprise guests. Nicole Atkins, Nick Zinner, and Josh Lattanzi teamed up for "Mary Jane's Last Dance," Father John Misty (who also played his second of two sold out shows in NYC last night and will be back at Webster Hall in January) did "Learning To Fly" and "I Won't Back Down," Har Mar Superstar did "Don't Do Me Like That," Andrew WK & Matt Sweeney did "Listen To Her Heart," Albert Hammond Jr. did "I Need To Know" (Fab played the show too), Caveman (who just played our day party and team up with Albert for a show again this Friday) did "Don't Come Around Here," plus a whole lot more.

More pictures from the Jameson-sponsored benefit show (all money went to Sweet Relief), and the setlist, below...

Great show - the Cabin Down Below Band was rock solid, and the guests all sounded great. And I was expecting a disorganized mess!

Father John Misty only did Learning To Fly

Never heard of Carney before, but they did the best cover all night, by far. Great show all around. I, too, was expecting more of a disorganized mess, but it actually ran very smoothly. Long live Tom Petty!

At least money went to Sweet Relief. Jameson threw some cash at this event. Open bar in the VIP thinned out by the end of the night.

That set list doesn't show what song Cyndi Lauper played...

What was it?

This band is great live and on record. Haters to the left, as my main man Kenneth Parcells would say.
