This week in eTown, garage rock powerhouses Heartless Bastards takes the stage at eTown Hall for their appearance on the show. The band, which derived its name from a flubbed answer regarding the name of Tom Petty’s backing band during a bar trivia game, features the strong vocals of singer Erika Wennerstrom, who has guided the ship through the band’s quick rise to fandom and five album releases. Blues harmonica legend and long-time friend of eTown, Charlie Musselwhite, makes a triumphant return to eTown this week as well. This show marks Charlie’s first visit to eTown’s new solar-powered home – eTown Hall, where he blesses the stage for all of those who will come after him. Plus, we will check in with a scientist who is developing ways to feed farm animals in a healthier and more sustainable way. That’s this week, in eTown!
