For the second year in a row, popular alt-rock band Toadies will be bringing their annual music festival back to their hometown of Fort Worth for two nights of live music on Sept. 12 and 13. The seventh annual Dia De Los Toadies festival will take place on the banks of the Trinity River at Panther Island Pavilion. Keeping with the tradition of previous Dia De Los Toadies, the fest will showcase Texas artists including Dallas-based country-rock legends, Old 97s and front man Rhett Miller, Austin indie rock trio, Ume; Fort Worth blues rockers, Quaker City Nighthawks; the reunited Dallas quintet, Pleasant Grove; roots rockers, Somebody’s Darling; Austin’s trio of pre-teen rockers, Residual Kid; Fort Worth’s resident garage rockers, The Longshots; and finally, funky town synth-punkers, Blank-Men.
Dia De Los Toadies will kick off on Friday, Sept. 12 with a full, almost-acoustic evening of tunes by Toadies and Old 97’s front man, Rhett Miller. Day two will be a full-out rock show featuring eight of Texas’ best rock bands as well as the festival’s namesake, Toadies. This year marks not only the seventh anniversary of Dia, but also the 20th anniversary of the Toadies platinum-selling album, Rubberneck, which the band will play in its entirety during the show.
