Are you Atlanta-based with a great ear?

Then you need to become my new best friend. Today.

I want to go see Tom Waits at the Tabernacle next Tuesday, August 1. But I can’t find anyone to go with me. Who wants to experience the rare opportunity of a live performance by one of our greatest songwriters and most distinctive voices? If you’re interested and you'll be in Atlanta next Tuesday evening, contact me. You can find my e-mail address on my profile, or you can leave a comment with your contact info. Now I'm off to Craigslist to find a ticket I can actually afford.

Can’t believe I had to resort to online solicitation …

I would LOVE to go, but it is Jay-man's birthday. He'd kill me if I picked another man over him. :)

Oh, that's going to be so good I'll bet Beth. Can't do it but wish I could. I fall into the same predicament from time to time, having to trick people into coming to concerts / events. Cause they're dumb, not like us!

M: You taunt and tease me so.

MARNI: It's Tom Waits. The Jay-man will understand ... in abour 25 years.

DALE: It's hard and a little lonely being this cool, isn't it?

One of my gung ho for almost anything friends just moved to London so I'm going to feel that the next time something extra cool comes up.

What is it with Atlanta and Tuesdays?! Why, Atlanta, why?!

*sob*

If it were any day that I could make without having to take two off from work, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

I might could talk Shannon into going with you, but I doubt I could get her out of work in time to go. she digs that guy though. I just went to Rancid, so my free time is limited for a while. Kids.

Too bad you're so far away! I'd go in a heartbeat.

We're hoping he'll be out this way in the fall. He sometimes is. I've actually never gotten to hear him live.

A good friend of mine's mom used to date the man. Many years ago. My friend has fond memories of being sung to sleep by Tom Waits. She was a very small child then, of course.

Beth - What the hell is wrong with people around there? Are they just stupid or are they insane? He rarely plays live. I'm so jealous I could spit!! Enjoy it twice as much for me will ya? sheeeesh!
