Toad The Wet Sprocket returns to the southland

Toad To Play The Coach House and The Rose

Santa Barbara is unique; technically in Southern California, it’s climate and overall vibe are often reminiscent of Northern California and that can produce an interesting mix of cultures. There is definitely a hippie sensibility alive and well in the greater Santa Barbara area, and that definitely influences the music scene there.

Toad The Wet Sprocket is from Santa Barbara and their blend of folk and rock styles is reflective of that origin. Their music is timeless, and with a few exceptions would fit well in any era from the late ‘60s on.

Their name may come from a Monty Python bit, revealing a band with a sense of humor and really fun live shows, but their music generally deals with personal topics, and the songs are exceptionally well written.

Yes, you can party with Toad The Wet Sprocket. Their live shows are legendary for being loose and lively events. You can sing along with their many hits like ‘All I Want,’ ‘Walk On The Ocean,’ ‘Good Intentions,’ ‘Something’s Always Wrong,’ ‘Fall Down,’ ‘Come Down’ and many others.

Reunited after a long break, the band is re-energized and coming off of their recent releases ‘New Constellation’ and ‘Architect of Ruin.’ Catch the guys in SoCal on January 28 at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano and February 1 at The Rose in Pasadena.

No matter where you catch them, it’ll be a great night for music.
