“I’ve been going through a real heavy metal phase, which I missed in school. I missed it. I didn’t get it. I really wish I had it to get again. I think I would have more fun in high school. But it just scared me, and that high voice was too much. So now I listen to Black Sabbath – which I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t get until I was 45 – and Iron Maiden and stuff like that.”
Wry and subversive alt-country singer-songwriter Todd Snider and his band step into the spotlight at The Egg in Albany on Saturday night in support of Snider’s new album, “Agnostic Hymns and Stoner Fables,” which is slated for release on Tuesday (March 6). They’re not likely to be playing any heavy metal classics… but you never know. Ashleigh Flynn opens the show at 8pm. Tix are $24.
