Smart bets web extra: Martin Snoddy

Local musician Martin Snoddy is both a student of the piano and a writer of rhymes. The latter he performs with stunningly rhythmic fluidity. And exuberance. And infectious beats.

Snoddy also blogs (also fluidly, exuberantly and infectiously). His entries are probably not intended for the sensitive or easily offended, but Snoddy is energetically forthcoming about his experiences, his ups and downs, his projects, interests and inspirations. “So yo, I got madd shit droppin in 2013,” he wrote last week. “I got a project with THUH YOUNG POLLOCK Mikey Kotz and then a SOLO joint droppin. Which I’m thinkin rhythmically, harmonically, melodically, and verbally will all be BONKERS!!”

Read more here. Or catch Snoddy live at One Stop on Saturday, Dec. 22. Writes show promoters, “for this particular event, he’s comin with a gang! Lil Sammy and Thuh Young Pollock Mikey Kotz will bless the stage with him!”

Also on the bill: PMC (aka Pandemonium C of Time Haters), S.Gold from Raleigh, and Gurp City‘s Blaqdef. 10 p.m., $5.

Xpress will give away a pair of tickets to the event. Contest Thursday at noon on Facebook.
