Tonight, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers conclude a visit to Boston’s TD Garden Arena as part of the band’s 40th Anniversary Tour. Guitarist Mike Campbell spent a night on the town in Boston back on Wednesday ahead of the shows and took in some local flavor at Thunder Road in Somerville. Campbell wound up joining beloved Grateful Dead tribute act Bearly Dead for a pair of Dead tunes.

Mike Campbell has performed with members of the Grateful Dead in the past and has been known to cover the group’s music with his The Dirty Knobs project. As such, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise Campbell was ready with Jerry-esque licks when he decided to hop on stage with Bearly Dead in Somerville. The talented guitarist showed off his instrumental skills on two Grateful Dead classics with Bearly Dead: “The Other One” and “Loser.”
