Review by Jim Mino:
The show kicks off about 10:10 Pm after some annoying sound problems. On stage is Tommy Womack on Electric Guitar, Will on his red Electric, Peter Cooper on Base and our boy on the black Epiphone. Molly appears later on in the show on Violin. Will is wearing a Toronto Blue Jays T shirt and Todd has a Jehovahs's Fitness T shirt covered by a sweat shirt and adorned with brown Hat. Billed as Todd Snider and Friends with a 9:00 pm start the show starts about 10:10 pm. The 3 Crow Bar at Woodland and 11th Street in East Nashville is not packed but has 50-75 people in at show time. It is the bar formerly known as Slow Bar. Melita is with friends at right side of the stage. The crowd seems mostly local.
