If you went, you might have heard
If outlaw country had a smarter pop edge, it would probably sound like Todd Snider. Known best for his mid-'90s almost hits "Alright Guy" and "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues" (the chronicle of a band that was adored because it refused to play), Snider has been churning out country-rock gems for more than a decade. His latest LP "The Devil You Know" earned year-end accolades from Rolling Stone, No Depression and Blender magazines. Adored figures like John Prine and Kris Kristofferson have heaped praise upon Snider's sly wit and concise songcraft-both of which have helped him become one of the most enduring voices in the crowded singer/songwriter landscape. He'll visit Lawrence solo armed with a guitar, a harmonica and a gabby gift for storytelling.Below: Todd Snider performs "You Got Away with It"
