It’s not as tough to find pure storytelling songwriters as it used to be, but with the proliferation of Nashville romanticism, it’s tougher to find good ones. Todd Snider is one of the good ones, a hilarious bard weaned on ’70s country and raised in the punk rock ’80s and early ’90s, who on his 17th album, Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3, furthers his own trippy, downhome reputation. Snider is capable of both sincere folk balladry (“Like a Force of Nature,” which features Jason Isbell) and super meta spoofs like album opener “Workin’ On a Song.” Paired with the legendary country icon Ramblin’ Jack Elliott tonight, this show is practically mandatory.
