Tom Waits LIVE: Atlanta 2008 + Akron 2006

To me, Tom Waits is the antithesis of The Beach Boys, and I can't stand The Beach Boys. I've been fascinated with Waits ever since stumbling upon an appearance he made on the Dinah Shore Show in the mid to late seventies, and that was one hell of an exciting stumble. I guess that's why I might envy youth, not for their age, but for having so much ahead of them, something like the discovery of Tom Waits, or Bob Dylan. I think that's why I, still, at half a century on this planet, seek out new music, I want to feel that thrill and excitement once again... but I'm a picky son of a bitch. Here's some Tom for you, in the small hope that you are making your own discovery through this post.

I've posted these two shows to encourage you to get out and buy Tom Waits' Glitter and Doom Live CD which will see the light of day on November 23rd. After all, now that you've heard unofficial Live Waits, just imagine how good the official product is... and it is, believe me. Find all you need to know and more by following the link to Tom's web page above.
