Todd Snider At The Triple Door 4.20.2012

Todd Snider

Todd Snider played The Triple Door in Seattle on Friday, April 20, the second of a two-night event.  Although it was 4/20, Todd was under heavy instruction (threats) by the management not to smoke anything green in the green room.  Okay, so what did the managers at The Triple Door expect when they decide to book a show on 4/20? Not that Snider smokes dope; he just needed a word that rhymed with “Pope” in his song, “Alright Guy”.

A Nashville transplant (make that East Nashville) originally from Oregon, Snider is most widely known in Seattle for his deliciously funny take on 90’s grunge with a song called “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues”, although this song was missing from Friday’s set.  He made up for its absence with a fine set of old favorites, other songs that appealed to the local crowd, new ones from Agnostic Hymns and Stoner Fables as well as a few surprises.

After six years of seeing his show throughout the Seattle area and a pilgrimage to Sparks, Nevada in 2009, I am blessed to say I have finally met the Elusive, self-proclaimed Evangelical Agnostic, Mr. Todd Snider.  There is a god!

  1. It’s times like this I wish I still lived up in Oregon. I’d have been there in Seattle with you for this one! I’m glad you finally got to meet him!

    • It was a great show, Blake. Second only to the Sparks 2009 Nervous Wrecktacular!

  2. I recently became more acquainted with some of Mr. Snider’s “other” stuff (besides the “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues”. “Tension” is one of my favorites, just for the line where he says “at least y’all do…I’m over it.”

    • Matt, he’s truly the Mark Twain of Folk! And perfect delivery every show. His new album is one of his best in years.
