A fifth annual fêting of the mystic, poetic, musical mad scientist, scratchy-voiced storyteller, and barroom bard Tom Waits, typically pulling deep cuts from his 20-some-album discography. Among the locals paying tribute to the 71-year-old Californian, some appropriately tickle ivories: organizer Jessica Pyrdsa, aka Datura, and Choctaw Wildfire; some share his jazz instincts: Rent Party and Guy Forsyth; some embody his squirrelly musical essence: Craig Marshall and Willy McGee; and some possess his dramatic vocal grit: Bluesqueezebox and Black Eyed Vermillion. – Kevin Curtin
