Bob Schneider at Neurolux 

On Austin, Texas, bad-boy balladeer Bob Schneider's website, you can stream his entire new album Lovely Creatures, complete with his hilariously dorky commentary on each track. Things start out with Schneider's terrible impersonation of Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins and quickly turn to talk of buying cigarettes and 40s of Country Club malt liquor in downtown Austin, "For $5, I could get 80 ounces of delish, bev-rage," which influenced his hit track "40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet)." And though Schneider shows his soft side when describing weeping while Patty Griffin was singing on the track "Changing Your Mind," the most what-the-what moment of his commentary comes when he talks about the inspiration behind "The Bringdown." During a make out sesh in high school, he details "rummaging around in not one, but both, of the junk drawers that are down there." You'll have to listen to the rest of the commentary yourselves to figure out where "the bringdown" comes in. Cough.

Schneider's goofy/cocky personality shines during his live sets, which include these new tracks along with old favorites like "Big Blue Sea," "The World Exploded Into Love" and "Bullets" off his 2001 breakout album Lonelyland. You can catch Schneider's fast-talking, Latin-tinged Americana at Neurolux on Friday, Oct. 15.
