Best of Marin 2018: Arts & Culture


For more than a decade, San Francisco’s Petty Theft, Marin’s Best Cover Band, has been runnin’ down the dream of embodying one of American music’s most iconic bands, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. This tribute act started learning to fly way back in 2003, and over the years they’ve gone into the great wide open with live performances all over the West Coast.

Made up of veteran musicians like lead singer and guitarist Dan Durkin, who also founded Marin County bands Frontline and East of Eden, and bassist Django Bayless of late ’80s Marin bands like Sapphire, Petty Theft is a favorite for all—from the musical refugee to the American girl.

Though the world lost Tom Petty last year, Petty Theft has not had a change of heart about playing his music, and they won’t back down from representing the songwriter. The band has several shows in the Bay Area coming in May.—C.S.
