Join us for an evening of Tom Waits’ gritty, romantic, irreverent and reverent music. Madeline McNeill and her troupe of musicians, one punk drummer, and a burlesque dancer will give Waits’ songs a rich and dark theatrical stage within the warm, gothic air of the West Central Abbey.
“I’ve always loved songs of adventure. Murder ballads, songs about shipwrecks and terrible acts of depravity and heroism. Erotic tales of seductions. Songs of romance, wild courage and mystery. Everyone has tried at one time or another to live inside a song. Songs where people died for love, songs of people on the run, songs of ghost ships or bank robberies. I’ve always wanted to live inside songs and never come back.” –Tom Waits
