Setlist: Tom Waits, The Ratcellar, Phoenix Park, 30 July 2008

Shane McGowan was in attendance for the first night of Tom Wait’s trio of performances at The Ratcellar in the Phoenix Park last night. He was looking for a Guinness, but instead found a veteran artist at the top of his game.

Jim Carroll has a great review of last night’s show here:
He lists ten interesting and funny aspects of the gig. The tenth is excellent:
“(10) The reason why the venue is called The Rat Cellar? The audience looked like drowned rats slinking away afterwards into the Dublin night as the rain came down in buckets”
