BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Desert Island Live: featuring the Music of Tom Waits
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Desert Island Live: featuring the Music of Tom Waits
The Desert Island Live series again features Stu Dias (Soggy Po Boys, Mother Superior and the Sliding Royals, Shango), with an impressive ensemble of local musicians and dancers, celebrating the music Tom Waits by performing three of his studio albums in their entirety, two each night.

Blood Money was released the same day as Alice (May 7, 2002). Much of the material was from a collaboration with Robert Wilson based on the play Woyzeck by Georg B├╝chner. Blood Money is a ramshackle apocalyptic carnival cabaret filled with weird nightmares, creepy dreamscapes, and mind-tampered madness. Something wicked this way hums.

Waits' 1985 Rain Dogs is an incredibly diverse collection of songs, with influences ranging from Kurt Weil to New Orleans brass bands, proving he can comfortably write for almost any genre and capture any sound he wants. It is a favorite among Tom Waits fans.

The hauntingly beautiful 2002 release Alice is a fever dream loosely based on the Lewis Carroll stories and comprises many pieces from a collaboration with Anton Wilson on a theatrical production of the same name. It is a heartbreakingly gorgeous record.
