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.
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.
