Tom Petty Symposium
October 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
It’s impossible to discuss the history of the Gainesville music scene without talking about Tom Petty. The Matheson will help kick off the Tom Petty Birthday Weekend by hosting the Tom Petty Symposium. Five authors and musicians, who either knew Tom personally or studied his life, will share stories and discuss the importance and impact of Tom Petty’s music – Mike Boulware, Bob Kealing, Danny Roberts, Jon Scott, and Paul Zollo. The panel will be moderated by Dan Spiess, the producer for this year’s Tom Petty Weekend festival at Heartwood Sound Stage. Join us on Thursday, October 17, at 11am to gain a deeper understanding of one of Gainesville’s most beloved sons.
Admission is free but in order to ensure there is seating for everyone attendees must register for a free ticket via Eventbrite
