Tom Waits announces tour dates...

...and again, none are above the Mason Dixon line. Waits, known for his years-between tour schedule, announced dates the other day. For his last tour (2006), he explained his odd choice for the venues were, ""to pick up some fireworks, and someone owes me money in Kentucky." So who knows....much like Leonard Cohen, Waits can do kooky stuff and get away with it. I mean, what are you gonna say, "No Tom, that's crazy," he's Tom Waits for cripesakes, he gets to do whatever he wants. But yeesh, how come Phoenix gets two dates and DC none Tom? You can get fireworks in Virginia I'm sure...

Btw, wanna see Jon Stewart visibly nervous and giddy like a schoolgirl?

I'm finally starting to get into Tom Waits, I've always thought he's an interesting songwriter but for some reason it's taken awhile for me to really "get it."

It is weird about the tour dates... and the "press conference" he did is even weirder!
