Never in my life did I ever think I was going to have a chance to see Tom Waits live. It was just something I accepted. Then the "Glitter and Doom" tour was announced and with Bush giving everyone that stimulus check, the timing couldn't of been more perfect. I even traveled to Florida, a state I always told myself I would never visit, to see Tom Waits in the flesh. I could seriously go on and on about how magical that show was but I have a couple more post I want to publish before the night begins.

I bring you here an audio documentation (in high quality!) of a night from the "Glitter and Doom" tour. Recorded live on the last night of the U.S. tour in Atlanta's Fox Theater. This was originally streamed on http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=92916923 Here's a track by track mp3 version of it.
