The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall announced today that alt-country singer/songwriter Todd Snider will perform at 8 p.m. Oct. 29 at the venue, 1050 A1A N., Ponte Vedra Beach.

Tickets for Todd Snider go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 12.

“I think if you work so hard to be taken seriously, you’ve missed the rock ‘n’ roll,” Snider says. “What’s wrong with uptempo and positive? This is Saturday night: crank it up.”

Snider used to call up friends like Elizabeth Cook and Kevin Gordon, and hit various bars under the moniker Elmo Buzz & the Bulldogs. The randy, rousing group – “kinda like the Rolling Thunder Review, with horns and girls” – quickly became a hipster’s favorite, mating Jerry Lee Lewis’ fraught rock with the Kingsmen’s swing’n soul. Never intended as more than a local joyride, the Bulldog buzz infected more than East Nashville’s 5 Points neighborhood. A day of recording with Emmylou Harris’ steelman/original Mavericks’ producer Steve Fishell captured the combustion and kinetics in a way that merged crazed music lovers, alcohol and freewheeling musicians.

Tickets for Todd Snider with Rorey Carroll can be purchased at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre box offices, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and by phone at 800-745-3000.
