Tom Waits doesn't make a lot of public appearances. Apparently the last time anyone saw Tom, he was duetting with Mavis Staples last September. But Thursday night, the music legend made a trip out to see Jack White's Boarding House Reach Tour at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Fransisco.

Jack and the band posted about it on the insta @officaljackwhitelive, saying " Tom Waits came to Jack White’s performance in San Francisco and made all the musicians in the band confirm and pay testament to their love of the religion of music.  He also stole Jack's watch.  A million thanks and tributes to Saint Tom from Jack and the band."

I would love to hear more about how and why Tom stole Jack's watch, like whaaaa? More than that, I would have LOVED to be in the room with two rock legends like those guys. Sounds pretty epic.
