Atlanta Toad concert [01 Jun 2009|12:13pm]

[ mood | busy ]

Since this is the only Toad group on LJ that I've been able to find, I thought I'd share my review and not-great photos of the recent Atlanta show. It's here if you'd like to see it: http://soultoad.livejournal.com/768398.html

They're still the absolute best.

New Glen Music, just in time for Christmas! [13 Dec 2008|01:11am]

[ mood | excited ]

anyone who hasn't heard Glen's new track "Blood Pressure Rise" is surely missing out on the best thing the man has done since going solo.

the track can be found on his newest side project Remote Tree Children. the album, "Vetran Of The Loudness Wars" is now available and can be purchased and downloaded here:


as far as I know no CD release is planned, simply a masterpiece of the digital kind

though I have to say, might not be a bad idea to push "Blood Pressure Rise" to radio. has hit written all over it

it's a pretty tasty piece of pop.

Cleaning out my closet (literally!); Toad stuff for sale! [24 Sep 2006|12:57pm]

[ mood | awake ]

Hi All --

Some of you may remember me as the former "Toad Queen." I used to own www.Toadonline.com and run merch at a lot of the local Toad shows.

Back in the ’90s, I was the collector of all collectors of Toad stuff. As a teenager, I spent all of my allowances, birthday and Christmas monies trying to acquire every possible Toad item I could find. Somewhere in between going off to college and moving in with my (now) husband, all of my Toad stuff found its way into storage. Boxes upon boxes of stuff that I once adored, has been in buried in closets long forgotten about.

Now, as I look toward the future (aka: moving into a house and having kids), I realize that my Toad stuff may always remain in boxes and that my Toad posters may never see the light of day in my home ever again. As sad as it is to part with some of these items (just SOME! I am keeping a small box for myself!), I’d much rather see these items find homes where they will be loved and appreciated more than they will be in a box in the bottom of my closet in my office.

I am not trying to make a huge profit or swindle the fans. I didn’t list prices because I’m not sure who would even want them and I’m willing to bundle-sell where necessary. I didn’t put these on eBay because I wanted to offer them direct to the people who would value them the most. Some of these items were “well loved” before I received them, and I’ve noted that below. All shirts were washed after I pulled them from the closet (even though I really don’t think I’ve worn some of them).

Please email me at toadsale@yahoo.com if you are interested. I have photos of EVERYTHING if you need them. I’m still in the editing process, but I am going to try to upload them somewhere accessible for all to view.

Cutting to save your friends page--there's a LOT listed below!Collapse )

Again, please email me at toadsale@yahoo.com if you are interested in items. Do excuse me if you see this in multiple places... I really want to move this stuff out as soon as possible and open up some space in my home!

Who else caught the throw-away Toad reference on the Daily Show about a week ago? It's just past the 3:00 mark.

Mr Lemons [02 May 2006|11:39am]

[ mood | content ]

I have my autographed copy of Mr. Lemons! it's background music at work until I can get home and listen properly, but I certainly enjoy what I can hear of it. Anyone have any reviews yet?

Does anyone have any idea what this show is? Is Toad reuniting again for one show or something?


If so, I may very well have to travel to New Jersey.

More info from Lapdog's message board - it looks like a Toad summer tour is going to happen.


And from Glen's message board:


Am I the only one around here that didn't know about this? If so, sorry for the post :)

[ mood | contemplative ]

I've noticed it's been a bit quiet in here, so I thought to stir things up we should perhaps discuss Toad songs and what we think they mean.

I'll start with one of my fave tracks off fear, "Pray Your Gods."

Here are the lyrics and my interpretationCollapse )

What do you think?

Hi there! [29 Aug 2005|08:10pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Hi there! I just joined this community because I really like Toad the Wet Sprocket and want to know more about them and their music. So, if you are feeling the need to share you vast Toad knowledge you may pour your collective wisdom all over me. (Yes I know that I could Google them and find out nearly everything about them, but I think that it would be more interesting and mean more coming from hardcore fans.)

Ciao Bellas xoxo!

Last night's show was cool. I think that if he had topped the April show I would've died and heaven would have opened up and taken me in right then and there, but it was still great-- he seemed way relaxed.

Duck & Cover
Comes a Time
Whatever I Fear
Chapel Perilous
Liars Everywhere
Started "Released", couldn't remember the lyrics and played "Nanci" instead

Lyrics along the lines of..."You were always waiting..." (?)

Something's Always Wrong
The spiritual he wrote about "build a room for the many..."?

Glen in Nashville [14 Apr 2005|08:52pm]

The show last night was great-- Chris Thile played most of the set with the band, and then they did 6-7 songs together after the band encores. They finished about 1AM.

I may post some pictures later on my journal. Was anyone else there?

glen = rockstar [31 Mar 2005|04:00pm]

[ mood | excited ]

last night i saw glen play at the fine line in minneapolis. holy cow does that guy sound fantastic plugged in! while i've loved seeing him acoustic--and he does do a couple of mini-acoustic sets during the show--i forgot how much he rocks playing electric guitar.

i'm sure you're all going to see him, but if you haven't gotten your tickets already...what's wrong with you?!
