Of course, that's part of the fun of seeing Schneider live: You never know what to expect.
When not playing solo, Schneider is the frontman for the Austin-based Scabs -- a funk/punk group popular among frat boys and hippies alike -- but he can slip just as easily into alt-country-crooner guise when he occasionally sits in with the Resentments, an all-star ensemble of musicians who gather Sunday evenings in a south Austin honky-tonk.
It's such eclectic influences that allow Schneider to switch from raucous pop ditties with X-rated scat lyrics to beautiful acoustic tunes of loneliness and despair. It's also the reason why, until Schneider decides to focus on a specific musical style, he'll remain the best one-man act you've never heard of.
