Tom Waits, ‘Silent Night’ / ‘Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis’

33 Christmases ago, Tom Waits performed for an episode of Austin City Limits, honoring the holiday season with his trademark world-weary troubadour take on “Silent Night” alongside one of his own classics, “Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis.” Today, ACL shared this wonderful clip on the eve of Christmas Eve — a perfect time to reflect on both the holidays and the year that brought us yet another stunning Waits record, three decades later. Enjoy the 1978 clip above.
