    Waits to perform at legal benefit, mulls a tour

    On his album "Blood Money," Tom Waits sang of people he could never trust: "A woman when she weeps, a merchant when he swears, a thief who says he'll pay, a lawyer when he cares." Well, scratch the attorney off that list. Waits will be making a rare stage appearance on Jan. 22 at a benefit for Bet Tzedak Legal Services, which provides legal representation for poor and disabled clients in the L.A. area.

    Waits said in a statement that he signed up for the event at the Century Plaza Hotel because attorney Kevin Marks will be receiving the prestigious Luis Lainer Founder's Award.

    "Kevin Marks is a longtime friend and ally," the singer said. "A champion of artist and human rights. He has pulled my goyim tuchis out of many a fire."

    Bet Tzedak, which is Hebrew for "house of justice," gives legal aid to 10,000 people annually. Tickets for the benefit are $400 and are available at www.bettzedek.org.

    Waits, who has just been nominated for a Grammy, also hinted that he may soon tour, a rarity for the eccentric boneyard troubadour. "Somehow we return like the salmon to perform in important towns like Nimrod, Minn.; Square Butt, Mont.; Peculiar, Mo.; or Diagonal, Iowa. We just may be coming to a theater near you," he said.





    omg...if he plays Coachella then that dream will come true....

    I would kill to see Tom Waits, but i don't want him to come to Coachella. I would much rather see him at the Wiltern or someplace a little more suited to his style of music.

    I thought that too, but I saw him at Bridge School Benefit last year and it was great. Of course I imagine I would have been able to appreciate him even more in a smoky nightclub, but I'll take what I can get.

    Most likely my only chance of seeimg him would be if he was at coachella.

    If he plays within a zillion mile radius of here I'm going to pee my pants.

    I might just do it anyway.

    Tom Waits! Seriously, a tour would be amazing. As would a closing spot on the outdoor theatre...

    Uncle Bill will never leave a will
    And the tumor is as big as an egg
    Has a mistress, she's Puerto Rican
    And they say she has a wooden leg.









    Alma and I had a singalong to that song on the way to Indio while Steve played videogames in the back seat.
