Been there many times to see headliners and other bands....prepare to stand but worth it! You'll have a good time....
Once you see a show at Toad's, all others will fall short. The chance to see your favorites bands right at the stage can't be beat. I can't even name all of the shows I've seen there but seeing people like Nugent, Warren Haynes, and The Winery Dogs two feet away is amazing. Beer prices are what you'd expect. Totally... 更多
When you were in your twenties you had a different criterion for a night out and usually that involved how cheap it was. When you get a little older your tastes change as your income hopefully rises.

This is a destination for young music lovers and it has excellent pumice. But because of the lines, the late night activity, the area around it is a mess, smells foul and is not pleasant.
I have gone to Toad's for at least a decade and it has progressively gotten worse in terms of the level of unruly behavior by students.
