Tom Waits - Live in Atlanta

I swear I'm not usually this obsessed with music these days, but after a morning of diggin' in the crates, I came across this Tom Waits performance recorded in Atlanta, GA's Fox Theater on July 5, 2008. NPR was gracious enough to offer up this performance for absolutely free on their website. Check it out -

The setlist is as follows -

"Lucinda / Ain't Going Down to the Well"

"Down in the Hole"

"Falling Down"

"Chocolate Jesus"

"All the World Is Green"

"Cemetery Polka"

"Cause of It All"

"Till the Money Runs Out"

"Such a Scream"


"Hold On"

"Black Market Baby"

"9th and Hennepin"

"Lie to Me"

"Lucky Day"

"On the Nickel"

"Lost in the Harbor"

"Innocent When You Dream"

"Hoist That Rag"

"Make It Rain"

"Dirt in the Ground"

"Get Behind the Mule"

"Hang Down Your Head"

"Jesus Gonna Be Here"



"Eyeball Kid"

"Anywhere I Lay My Head"

As one would expect from the incredible Mr. Waits, it's an absolutely fantastic 2 1/2 hour performance spanning virtually every period of his career. Additionally, you can download the entire performance for free by subscribing to the NPR podcast right here. Enjoy!
