I have long been fascinated with Tom Waits. With a voice like a shovel being scraped over a gravel road, he’s like an apocalyptic prophet from another dimension, a harbinger of doom to the comfortable and hope for the afflicted. At least that’s how I think of him 😉
Anyway, I was disappointed that his Glitter and Doom tour wasn’t really passing anywhere close to Fort Wayne, but apparently they recorded a show in Atlanta that you can listen to online (or subscribe to NPR’s All Songs Considered podcast to download the entire two-and-a-half hour concert for free!).
To give you a good introduction to the wacky world of Tom Waits, check out his fake press conference for the tour. I am looking forward to listening to the whole concert.
