Toadies Announce Free Show for Record Store Day
Toadies will also release an exclusive Record Store Day 7" featuring 'No Deliverance' and a cover of LCD Soundsystem's 'Someone Great.' Both of the tracks were recorded live acoustic from last years Dia De Los Toadies.
Toadies have also just confirmed details of 2011's Dia De Los Toadies. Dubbed "Willie's Picnic for a New Generation" by the Austin Chronicle, this years' Dia will return for the second year in a row to Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, TX. The festival started off in 2008 at Possum Kingdom Lake and has been growing with attendance reaching over 5,000 each year. First confirmed acts are The Sword and UME with more to be announced.
Guitarist Clark Vogeler had this to say about last year's event: "The Dia festival keeps getting better every year. Last year's festival was without doubt the best weekend of the year. It always feels like a big family reunion with a great soundtrack. We had planned to keep moving the festival every year, but the location at White Water in New Braunfels seems like it was designed specifically for this festival. Multiple stages, lots of shade, and the ever-flowing Guadalupe River there to cool us all down whenever we want.
