Tom Waits performed material from last year’s excellent LP Bad As Me for the first time tonight, stopping by the Late Show with David Letterman. The eccentric singer/songwriter sat down for a chat with Letterman, discussing a 19th century rat trap which he actually brought on stage. Following the interview, Waits delivered an extended version of the album opener ‘Chicago’, backed by a full band which includes his son Casey on drums and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo on guitar.
