Todd Snider at Bluebird Theater, 10/19/13

TODD SNIDER at BLUEBIRD THEATER |10/19/13 Todd Snider didn't skimp on stories at his show at the Bluebird Theater. Before "Ballad of Devil's Backbone Tavern," he told us how his nephew is getting into singing and songwriting. Apparently he had told Snider that he didn't sing a lot of his songs so much as speak them, and the nephew wondered if there was an example of that with other songwriters. Snider said he played his nephew "Alice's Restaurant."
