The mix-up likely caused fans to go on a roller coaster ride of emotions — from grief to relief and back to grief again.
But no matter where you are along the grieving process, El Club is giving Detroit-area fans a chance to celebrate the singer at a Tom Petty appreciation night tonight, Oct. 3. Craig Brown and Eric Allen, both of Detroit country band the Craig Brown Band, will serve as DJs. Music starts at 5:30 p.m. and goes "late" according to the flier. The event is free.
