Toadies Play Martini Ranch Tonight
Fans would have to wait five years for a follow-up after Interscope rejected the Toadies' sophomore effort, Feeler. Its eventual replacement, Hell Below, Stars Above, produced some memorable tracks ("Plane Crash," "Little Sin"), but after bassist Lisa Umbarger left the band in 2001, Lewis disbanded the Toadies and focused on side project The Burden Brothers. A reunion (with a new bassist) in 2006 led to a Texas mini-tour in 2007 and a new studio album, No Deliverance, last year. The band is ostensibly touring in support of that release, but here's hoping a healthy portion of Rubberneck finds its way onto the setlist tonight at Martini Ranch.
