Todd Snider 

When: Thu., March 17, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $20

A dope-smoking smart-ass with a flair for folk, Todd Snider burst onto the scene with his flannel-cracking piss-take "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Blues." He lasted longer on a major than you might've expected (three albums, actually) before hooking up with the label of kindred spirit John Prine. He's displayed a gift for goofy anthems ("Beer Run"), political broadsides ("Conservative Christian, Right-wing Republican, Straight, White, American Males") and keen character studies, like his ode to Dock Ellis' LSD no-hitter, "America's Favorite Pastime." But it's not all jokes, as his soul-searching musical acknowledgement of his former trouble with painkillers ("Age Like Wine") demonstrates. His intelligence, biting satire and light-hearted spirit shine.—Chris Parker
