Ever since Todd Snider came on the scene in 1994 with the song “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues” he has garnered comparisons to songwriting’s satiric best. He quickly showed that his artistic quiver was much deeper and more interesting. A storyteller who works a similar creative soil to John Prine and Shel Silverstein, Todd’s best songs are both sad and funny, political and entertaining, and always written with a poet’s eye and a stand-up comedian’s sensibility about the follies of human condition. While he’s made eighteen fine albums, it’s on stage where Todd is even more potent, with between-song banter that weaves subtle emotional threads through his sets.  Todd performs in support of his latest release First Agnostic Church of Hope and Wonder.  Singer-songwriter Reed Foehl will open the show.
