Club Candids: The Toadies at Martini Ranch

It doesn’t seem like that long ago when we were on our way to a high school dance, blasting the Toadies and ripping out our voice boxes singing, “Do you wanna die?” over and over again. Well, that was a whopping 13 years ago. And if you have a similar memory, we’re sorry, but you’re old.

We didn’t let our, ahem, maturity stop us from heading out to Martini Ranch on Monday, September 8, to see these dudes rock out. Joined by bands Lions and The Loveblisters, the turnout was decent and the crowd was amped by the time The Toadies hit the stage. Live music was blasting all night and the booze was flowing. So, sure, we may be getting a little long in the tooth, but we can still party on a Monday.
