Todd Snider: National Treasure

I saw Todd Snider at Vulcan Park in Birmingham today. He wasn't as talktive as usual, but the songs were great!

Todd Daniel Snider is a singer-songwriter born October 11, 1966 in Portland, Oregon.
Best known for his wry humor, Snider has been a fixture on the Americana, alt-country, and folk scene since his debut on MCA, entitled Songs for the Daily Planet, named for the bar where Snider used to play regularly in Memphis. On that album were the minor hits "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues", a play on Dylan's Talkin' New York. Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues is a folk song about the early '90's grunge scene, featuring a band that "refused to play", and "Alright Guy", which later became the title cut of Gary Allan's 2001 album.
