Tom Waits Great At Bridge School Benefit
The crowd was a little restless by the time Tom Waits took the stage at the second night of the Bridge School Benefit. Temperatures were frigid throughout the entire day, but the winds picked up after the sun went down, leaving many folks shivering under their blankets.
But all these issues seemed to vanish the second the lights dimmed and Tom Waits walked onstage. Despite releasing the stellar LP Bad As Me in 2011, he hasn't played a single concert in over five years. His fans were hungry for a show and he wasn't going to disappoint. Backed by a killer band featuring Les Claypool on standup bass and David Hidalgo on guitar and accordion, Waits ran through ten songs over a fifty minute set, touching on most every era of his long career.
