Toadies are celebrating this year's Record Store Day with a free show on April 16 in Austin, TX at Waterloo Records' parking lot.

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.

I especially dig the eclectic nature of the lineup. Each of us in the band picks bands that we want to share with our fans, and each other. I love that you can hear some quiet acoustic stuff, some country-ish honkey-tonk stuff, and of course, lots of Texas rock and roll." All support bands are Texas based and include such diverse greats as The Secret Machines, Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears, The Heartless Bastards, Ben Kweller, Two Tons of Steel, Bowling for Soup, Centro-matic, and Jim Ward's Sleepercar. This year's line up will be announced soon.

Toadies will also play a handful of dates before heading into the studio to record the follow up to 2010's Feeler
