“My name is Todd Snider and I’ve been driving around this country for more than 15 years. I make this shit up and sing it for anybody that will listen to it… Some of its sad, some of its short, some of its funny, and some of it seems like it goes on forever… Often times I will ramble on for as many as 18 minutes between a particular song. I am gonna share my opinions with you tonight, not because they are smart or because you need to know them, but because they rhyme and I only know 3 chords” – Todd Snider

What better way to explain a Todd Snider show than words from the man himself.  This Summer the self proclaimed tree huggin’, peace lovin’, pot smokin’, porn watchin’ lazy ass hippie will be heading out all across America, and he wants you to come hang out for a few hours!  Stops include his stomping ground in the Pacific Northwest, the beautiful Colorado, seven shows across Texas, and a stop at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN with Justin Earle Townes. Later this Summer, a stop in Alaska is even in store, as well as a stop at one of the best named festivals I’ve seen, What The Folk Festival in Memphis, TN.

Check him out this Summer when he hits a stage near you with his acoustic guitar, his harmonica, and no shoes on. Pick up his new albums, Agnostic Hymns and Stoner Lullabyes, a solo album that is available now and the soon to be released Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker, a tribute to one of Sniders biggest influences, and the man responsible for unleashing the chaos that is Todd Snider on the world.
