Todd Snider is one of the most effortlessly engaging songwriters and entertainers out there, able to string together quality narrative-based songs for a solid discography, although he’s at his best in a live setting. His breezy slacker attitude matched with a sharp wit usually turn in an unpredicable concert, each one feeling as if the stage turns into a living room, as people shout out requests and he tells 10-minute plus stories in between songs. They’re the kind you want to hear, though, the naturally funny kind about freewheeling antics that will make you laugh your ass off.
