Last night’s Tom Waits show in Dallas was along waited treasure for this fan. You can read more here and here. Waits hasÂ beenÂ mining a vein of American music that is uniquely his own through his career and his songs have been covered by Allison Krauss, Johnny Cash and the Ramones among many many others (notice the intended omission of one Ms. Scarlett Johansson.)Â Â
Big thumbs downÂ for the venue, The Palladium Ballroom, for the lack of air conditioning for a two thousand plus crowd on a hot Texas June night.

I’m headed to Dallas to hang out with my family and attend the Tom Waits “Glitter and Doom” tour when it pulls into Big D on the 23rd. I’ll be posting sporadically during that time. In other words like I usually post. See you at the show!
I’ll be in my hometown Dallas, TX on 6/23 to catch the legendary Tom Waits at the Palladium Ballroom. If you’re in the neighborhood drop me a line and buy me a beer.
