The Toadies Rocked Out To A Nearly Sold Out Crowd At Emos

The Toadies set at Emo’s East last Friday confirms that they are still going on strong. With over twelve hundred people in attendance to the locally sponsored 101X radio event, this was the place to be! The band’s set pulled from their entire discography, including their recent album The Lower Side of Uptown, arguably their strongest effort since their 1994 classic Rubberneck.

The Toadies took the stage with the 1994 Rubberneck classic, “I Come From The Water“, where frontman Vaden Todd Lewis’s granulated wail showed no sign of age.

The Toadies showed no signs of stopping while on the stage, they carry such energy with them. The entire crowd from the front to the back was moving and dancing. This was probably my third time seeing the Texas native band hit the stage in 25 years. I’ll say this much, they have only gotten better with time and each time has been more and more of a great time.

Toadies Setlist:

I Come From the Water
Little Sin
Polly Jean
Push the Hand
Rattler’s Revival
Song I Hate
You Know the Words
When I Die
Hell in High Water
Possum Kingdom
I Walk a Line
You’ll Come Down
Mexican Hairless
Take Me Alive

About Tracy Fuller 29 Articles
I love music, I love crowded venues, loud music, and sweat-soaked fans. I love the sound of a venue opening its doors to the public. I ended up moving to the Austin area in 2011. I have nearly a decade of experience in the Entertainment & Private Event industries. I have supervised at a number of concert venues and festivals, such as Emo’s East, Stubb’s, ACL Festival, Bonnaroo, Austin Fan Fest, SXSW, and the Austin Trail of Lights. In 2014, I began to take an interest in all things media related. I ended up chasing those ambitions and became a content creator and a concert photographer. With no formal training in any of those areas, in 2017 I decided it was time to change that up. I decided to pursue a degree in the Arts focusing on Radio, Television, and Film. As I began my academic path, I inquired about the Media department. I currently am a multimedia journalist for the Student Life department at ACC. To further my education, I received a scholarship with the Austin Film Society to become a TV Producer at Austin Public Studios. I believe in capturing the essence of life and representing it in a creative effort.
