Todd Snider & the Burnouts return to Cincinnati this week for a Wednesday show at the 20th Century Theater with special guest Rosi Golan. Snider is one of the more acclaimed songwriters of his time, earning early support from high-profile fans like John Prine and Jimmy Buffett. He continues to dazzle with his well-crafted songs and engaging lyrics (perhaps his most notable talent).

This year Snider released two new albums within a couple months of each other. The first, March’s Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables, was an embedded, sign-o-the-times album that featured an “Occupy” anthem, “New York Banker,” and other sharp-yet-everyday observations of current society. The most recent release was a tribute to a like-minded forefather; the Don Was-produced Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker featured guests ranging from platinum-selling Country star Kix Brooks to young Americana critic’s darling, Amy LaVere. 8 p.m. $18-$25. 20th Century Theater. 3021 Madison Road, Oakley. Wednesday, June 27. Visit magus-music.com for ticket info.
