So, I can now cross-off on my list of things to do in life, “See Tom Waits live!” Living in Ohio for most of my life, I really didn’t think it would happen. I had the unfortunate luck of missing Tom at House of Blues Cleveland last year. I had simply forgotten to check one of my throw-away email accounts that was getting Ticketmaster updates and missed the pre-sale. So, of course, all the tickets were gone by the time I figured out what was going on (basically, I missed the pre-sale, logged-on to Ticketmaster the morning tickets went on sale publicly and was ready to go at 10am but my one attempt at exactly 10am was not good enough to get a single ticket!) And they were sold out from then on…unless you had $400 to shell out on eBay.
