The Toadies are hosting the second Dia De Los Toadies, a yearly concert they launched last year over Labor Day Weekend. This year’s event is set for August 29 near Rough Creek Ranch in Glen Rose, TX, an hour from the band’s hometown of Fort Worth.
Tickets for the all-ages event are $25 and are currently available through FrontGateTickets.com.
“We got the idea last year to do an annual event at a remote Texas spot,” singer Vaden Todd Lewis noted in a statement. “Something with a different vibe than the usual club or street festival.”
This year, Toadies will be joined by friends The Secret Machines, Bowling for Soup, Ben Kweller, Eleven Hundred Springs and The Boom Boom Box. Last year’s event, which sold out in advance, featured Tejas Brothers, Lions, Dove Hunter and Backsliders.
“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,” added drummer Mark Reznicek. “The band and the fans all had an incredibly fun time, and I’m really looking forward to doing it again.”
Since last summer’s release of “No Deliverance,” their first album in seven years, the group has been touring non-stop. A new album is planned for 2010.
