Blackbird 2 Year Anniversary w/ Sun Stereo & Mojo: A tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Saturday, July 20
Show | 7pm
$7 ADV/ $10 DOS

Blackbird is turning 2 years old and we’re throwing a party!! Sun Stereo and Mojo: A Tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will both be doing 2 sets each (alternating) with Mojo starting the night off outdoors followed by Sun Stereo inside!!

“Sun Stereo delivers a full sensory explosion incorporating a hybridization of organic and electronic elements blended with Beatles-esque vocal harmonies, electronic soundscapes, circus-style performance art, nu-age story book lyrics, orchestral strings, and a funk-your-face-off horn section. Yeah, there’s a lot going on. In the last 9 years, they have developed a fierce following and have established themselves as a must-see live show, reminiscent of a wedding reception on acid sans the chicken dance. They have also performed special festival tribute sets as The Beatles (Gentlemen of the Road Tour/Summer Camp 2012-2015), The Doors (Summer Camp 2016), and The Flaming Lips (Summer Camp 2018).”

“Mojo: A Tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is based out of Champaign-Urbana, IL and features musicians from Decadents and the No Secret Band.”
