Rain City Benefit for Haiti with Petty Differences & The West Coast Feed, Featuring Art by John & Anna Hooser

- Adult: $20.00
- Youth: $10.00
Great local art and live music combine to make a difference in the world. Featuring the debut performance of new local band THE WEST COAST FEED, live art by John & Anna Hooser, and headlined by PETTY DIFFERENCES, all proceeds from this ‘philanthro-party’ go directly to benefit medical relief in Haiti.
Six friends in 2016 decided to get together and play a few songs live from the timeless catalog of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. That night, Petty Differences was born. Combining live performance covers of the the more than 60 published credits from the prolific Petty, and benefiting local and global social justice issues, the band creates a one-of-a-kind euphoric sing-along experience that actually makes the world a better place.
Petty Differences is:
Coleman Jennings: Lead Vocals, acoustic guitar
Matt Woll: Lead and background vocals, electric guitars, harmonica
Jay Powers: Keys and background vocals
Tommy McCracken: Bass, background vocals and tambourine
Noel Christmas: Lead and rhythm electric guitars
Peter Birkner: Drums and percussion
Opening Act: The West Coast Feed – www.facebook.com/thewestcoastfeed
The West Coast Feed is a band from Seattle’s Eastside who make their own style of high energy, blue eyed, boot stompin’ soul. Fronted by Jesse Butterworth, the band includes Matt Woll, Kyle Frank, DJ Park, Tim Oas and Chad Elrod. With influences from Muscle Shoals, Ray LaMontagne, Alabama Shakes, and the Black Keys, The West Coast Feed draw on classic southern rock and Motown styles to create a modern soul sound.

Sometimes life gets messy. “My paintings tend to mirror life in that way, they’re a little messy, but full of some really beautiful moments.”
INSPIRATION: Much of my inspiration comes from old photographs, some of which are family, some of which have come into my hands via yard sales, antique shops, or old thrift store buys. These people have become so familiar that I feel like I know them and their stories; I feel like I have a chance to remake their histories.
GOBS OF PAINT: I love paint, how it moves and can be manipulated. My heart beats a little faster the moment I see the strokes and colors begin to become something far greater than just paint on a canvas. I love the process, the mistakes, and the messes just as much as I love the final piece.
Art is not a luxury. There is a force within us that moves us into action to inspire, to relate, to evoke.
