Schneider even offered to stick around afterward in the Exit's cafe to chat, but the only thing I could think of to ask him in this scenario was if everything he was relating was true, and I really didn't want to know the answer if it was "yes." But he's funny, and he's a very talented songwriter-composer. His tunes, which resemble the more artful side of Billy Joel's work, are well constructed, minor-key based pieces of pure pop delight. As I listened to him play and sing I thought to myself how great he would be at composing a full-blown musical. Hopefully he will, but on a different topic.

Sat, Sept 18 5:30 PM
