The Toadies

The Toadies

September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Its been 23 years since the Toadies started playing rock music in Fort Worth, Texas, but even the band will admit that the road they’ve taken over that lengthy period of time has been anything but smooth. Through lineup changes, shelved albums, member departures, band break-ups, one-off reunions and full-on reformations, the Toadies are an act that has experienced nearly everything — except, perhaps, the freedom to grow as they choose. On July 31, the Toadies will release their fifth full-length album — a disc fittingly called Play.Rock.Music., because, perhaps for the first time in their career, the band feels capable of unapologetically doing just that.
