Point Entertainment presents Todd Snider
Sat., October 15, 2016
A live Todd Snider show is a loose-limbed, informal experience: its often just him and a guitar, and he introduces his songs with stories that can be personal memoir, shaggy-dog comedy, rueful memories of his troubles with drugs and alcohol, or sharp-eyed observation from his years as a touring musician; no matter what the case, they display Snider’s boundless charm and insight. As he’s allowed his storytelling to evolve along with his music, Snider has become not only a modern-day Dylan but a modern-day Will Rogers, an everyman whose intelligence, self-deprecation, experience, and-above all-sense of humor makes him a uniquely American character.
Snider’s new album Eastside Bulldog suggests there’s a new kinda rumble under the hood of the iconoclastic troubadour. You don’t expect barrel house boogie woogie, straight up garage rock or power pop from the ratchety voice who gave you Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues, the iconic East Nashville Skyline or the Great American Taxi-backed Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker.
Special Guest: Rorey Carroll! As a writer, Carroll’s strength is showing beauty in everything, from smoky bar rooms to the littered streets. She not only seeks those places out, but paints them in gorgeous Technicolor with the voice of one who has been there. Her song writing delivers the honest subtlety of living the life of a gypsy, while still longing for the simplicity of small town happiness.
She’s a poet. The real thing, easily up there with the best of her generation she blew me away.. and all the crowds too. -Todd Snider
