"Willie's picnic for a new generation" –Austin Chronicle
Dia De Los Toadies, now in its ninth year, will take place Saturday, June 11th at River Road Ice House in New Braunfels, Texas. Confirmed so far in addition to Toadies are Reverend Horton Heat, Los Skarnales, A Giant Dog, Purple, In The Whale, Emily Wolfe and Golden Meanies.
"Willie's picnic for a new generation" is how the Austin Chronicle described the Toadies annual rock bash. Toadies guitarist Clark Vogeler says, "Dia keeps getting better every year. Last year's festival was without a doubt the best weekend of the year. It always feels like a big family reunion with a great soundtrack."
Dia De Los Toadies has taken place at several venues around the state including Possum Kingdom Lake, where the festival was first held Labor Day weekend of 2008. The show was an incredible success, selling out in advance. Dia De Los Toadies has taken place at Rough Creek Ranch in Glen Rose, three years at White Water Amphitheater in New Braunfels, and the past three years at Panther Island Pavilion in Ft. Worth.
Dia has featured many artists from Texas and across the nation including: Gary Clark, Jr., The Secret Machines, Bowling for Soup, Ben Kweller, Eleven Hundred Springs, Mariachi El Bronx, Helmet, Riverboat Gamblers and of course, the Toadies.
Vogeler says "I dig the eclectic nature of our lineups. Each of us in the band picks music that we want to share with our fans, and each other. I love that you can hear some quiet acoustic stuff, some country-ish honkey-tonk stuff, and of course, lots of Texas rock and roll."
