Todd Snider tours on Peace Queer

Text
Todd Snider Peace Queer,

The record features Snider's usual political and social commentary, broken up with humor and the occasional, trademark stream-of-consciousness rant ("Sometimes I'll ramble on for up to 18 minutes between songs, and sometimes I'll say the same shit I said last time, because I mean the same shit I said last time"). The surprise on the eight-track run-down is a bluesy remake of the 1969 Creedence Clearwater Revival song "Fortunate Son":



Snider, a self-proclaimed "Evangelical Agnostic," will be spreading the word in an East Coast/Midwest tour throughout the rest of the year, starting tomorrow in Lexington, Ky.
