Dia De Los Toadies. What the hell is it? Dia De Los Toadies is an annual concert hosted by the Toadies at a different location of their choosing. Think along the lines of a big ol’ Texas picnic with the band and five thousand of their closest friends.
Singer Vaden Todd Lewis explains, “We got the idea last year to do an annual event at a remote Texas spot... something with a different vibe than the usual club or street festival.”
The first Dia De Los Toadies took place over Labor Day weekend 2008 at Possum Kingdom Lake. Toadies were joined by friends Tejas Brothers, Lions, Dove Hunter and Backsliders. The show was an incredible success, selling out in advance.
Drummer Mark Reznicek says: “Last year's Dia De Los Toadies was probably the most fun gig of the year, in a year where we played LOTS of great shows (including Lollapalooza). The band and the fans all had an incredibly fun time, and I'm really looking forward to doing it again.”
The second Dia De Los Toadies takes place on Saturday, Aug 29, 2009 near Rough Creek Ranch in Glen Rose, an hour outside of the band’s hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. It’s a beautiful spot in the country on a private lake situated on an 11,000 acre ranch.Toadies will be joined by friends The Secret Machines, Bowling for Soup, Ben Kweller, Eleven Hundred Springs, and The Boom Boom Box. TEXAS ROCKS! See how much on August 29th.
Toadies released No Deliverance last summer, their first offering in seven years and toured relentlessly across the US for over a year wowing fans and critics alike. The band plan to get back in the studio to start work on a new record to be released in 2010.
