New Brookland Tavern has a long standing tradition of a New Years Cover Show. In the past this has included acts such as Dear Blanca as David Bowie, Ivadell as Weezer, and Can’t Kids as The Presidents of the United States of America. This fall after the loss of an iconic and cherished frontman a group of local musicians banded together, as Damn the Taquitos, to cover Tom Petty for 2017’s New Years Cover Show. Damn the Taquitos is made up of members of King Vulture, Dear Blanca, Marshall Brown Band, Barnwell, and Sandcastles. We caught up with them in their rehearsal space days prior to their show.
