tom waits photos

Mr. Waits put on a fantastic show last night. And although I bitch about the Palladium's set-up, it really does provide amazing sound for the handful of shows I see there. This was no exception. His backing band was spot-on, including his son on drums and an incredible one-man horns section that I fell in love with. As for Tom, his stories and songs came alive with his familiar brand of whimsical spookiness. Personal favorites of the night were Invitation to the Blues and a rousing sing-along to Everybody Row. Well worth the price paid.

In addition, a friend of mine allowed me to smuggle in her little point and shoot camera. And since my SLR wouldn't fit in my bra, excuse the quality and enjoy some photos from the show.

Pretty funny that the two main writers pissed all over this show yet their photographer shows up, has fun, posts a nice (SHORT) review and some pictures.

Sally Glass for President!

Is that funny? It just means that the site has a variety of people working on it that might have, get this, different opinions. Just like real life!

Palladium, Dallas, Tx.
June 23

Lucinda
Way down in the hole
Anywhere I lay my head
November
Chocolate Jesus
Frank's wild years
Singapore
Hoist that rag
Get behind the mule
Such a scream
Eyeball kid
Lucky day
Invitation to the blues
Lost in the harbor
Innocent when you dream
16 shells from a 30 ought 6
Lie to me
Fannin St
Black market baby
Misery is the river of the world

Make it rain
Jesus gonna be here
9th and Hennepin
Time

hey nickel, you're a really dumb fuck and one of the most annoying comment makers on here. "oh no, doctoral thesis! me hate reading!"

Damn! That is a tight set list, too fucking bad I was broke as a joke that I couldn't afford the $100 tickets. Tom Waits is one of my favorite artists...but at least I have bootlegged Big Time.
