Well, crap in a basket and call me Pappy, it’s almost Friday! And hey, Todd Snider is coming to town! If you’re in the Phoenix area, and you’re free on Sunday night (a long weekend for MLK Day), join me, the wife and some friends down at the Last Exit Bar & Grill in Tempe. $15 to see Todd Snider? I’ll take it….
I’m looking forward to seeing him. He’s a singer/songwriter from Nashville (originally from Portland, Oregon) with a sharp, witty sense of humor – a performer sort of in the same vein as John Prine. His debut was on MCA way back in 1994 – Songs for the Daily Planet. Seven other studio albums have followed, all the way up to his latest, 2006’s The Devil You Know.
Quality entertainment, folks. Check out a few tunes.
Todd Snider – Combover Blues (mp3) – priceless lyrics about getting older… [from Peace, Love and Anarchy (Rarities, B-Sides and Demos, Vol. 1)]
Todd Snider – All My Life (mp3) – a nice love song – [from Happy to Be Here]
Todd Snider – Enough (mp3) – one of my favorite rockin’ harmonica solos along with Bruce’s “Promised Land” and Steve Earle’s “More Than I Can Do” – [from Step Right Up]
