Todd Snider headlines The State Room on April 24
Music » Quirky singer-songwriter has two new albums to promote
First Published Apr 17 2012 04:59 pm • Last Updated Apr 17 2012 04:59 pm

Todd Snider, the lovably quirky Oregon-based singer-songwriter, will release his second album of 2012 the same day he headlines The State Room. Snider, 45, is releasing a tribute album to his musical hero Jerry Jeff Walker on April 24, just a few months after he released "Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables." "He was, to me, a free spirit," said Snider in a Tribune interview. Snider explained that during a three-year period during his leaner days, Snider slept every night on a friend’s coach, and he felt like a "freeloader." But once he heard a Walker song about sleeping on other people’s coaches, Snider rationalized his behavior as being that of a "free spirit," rather than a freeloader. On this tour, Snider said he will play songs from both new albums, but he apologized during the interview. "I hate going to concerts when the guy plays news songs," he admitted. "That’s when everyone goes to the bathroom." He welcomed people yelling out requests at his shows in place of the new material, though. "If I’d had enough drinks, I can play anything," he said. Reed Foehl opens.
