tom waits announces summer tour

with the best press conference ever

“say hello to your mother” should be on the tshirt, if you ask me.

my only problem is, id love to go to the phoenix show that kicks off the tour except its on a tuesday and im going to be taking a few days off (if its approved by my boss) in early june.

and it appears that there are very few weekend shows on the tour, meaning a man cant even fly out to a show unless he wants to go to houston.

and no one wants to fly to houston.
