Best news of the year (the sequel)? Tom Waits AND Rival Schools Touring

So it seems the email I got sent on Saturday was false. Well, by now as everyone knows, Tom Waits is touring. Instead of Akron or Chicago, the only option for me this time around in good ole Columbus, unless Thomas wants to head to Jacksonville for July 4th? Tee-box - holler at me.
