One of the most legendary Austin City Limits episodes of all time is the one that features Tom Waits, in a transitional period (isn’t he always, though?), tearing through his early repertoire with all the coolness and barfly charm we’ve come to love him for. Except for the occasional repeat, this episode has only become available on mostly terrible bootlegs, but thanks to our friends at KLRU and Austin City Limits, we are bringing it back, newly remastered from the original source tapes. In addition to this the complete screening of this essential performance of Tom Waits at his peak, we will also show a program of some other great performances from the ACL archives.
