Tom Waits Glitter And Doom Concert Preview

July 28th, 2008

Episode 173 of 714 episodes

Tom Waits doesn't tour a lot, and when he does, tickets are hard to come by. But you can hear the final U.S. concert from Waits' most recent tour here, or download the show by subscribing to the All Songs Considered Live Concerts podcast. In the meantime, this week's episode of All Songs features an excerpt from that performance. Also, hear Martin Quinn and Angelina Carberry share their Irish tradition; Celtic music from Cape Breton, with the spectacular fiddle of Kimberley Fraser; and African-inspired sounds with a distorted twist in the music of NOMO. And lovers of great pop music won't want to miss new music by The Silent Years and Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene.
