Toad the Wet Sprocket

When: Wed., July 6 2011

I spent the summer between high school and college obsessively listening to Material Issue, the BoDeans and Toad the Wet Sprocket on my Walkman. Even now, whenever I hear "All I Want," "Walk on the Ocean," or "I Will Not Take These Things for Granted" from Toad's 1991 album Fear, I feel the warm Chicago sun on my face and hear the skipping of a soon-to-be completely worn-out cassette tape. At 8:30 tonight, for just $20 in advance or $25 at the door, I'll get to revisit those fond memories (without the skipping) when Toad takes the stage at a Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com) all-ages show. Won't you join me? — Kirsten Akens
