Yep, We’ll Be at El Corazón Tonight [Toadies plus Battleme = We’re In!]

Toadies Battleme El Corazon

Most nights, there’s nothing like a trip to El Corazón to make you feel old. With the masses that gather for the usual pop punk and/or metal fare, it’s not at all uncommon to find yourself in a sea of amped up teens. Tonight’s lineup will likely make you feel old in a different way. Old because you can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the headliner’s excellent break-out album.

In August 1994, Fort Worth’s the Toadies released Rubberneck and soon thereafter “Possum Kingdom” became a post-(Seattle) grunge staple. Frontman Vaden Todd Lewis brought his acoustic solo act to the Triple Door a few months back and now he’s returned with the full band to play Rubberneck in its entirety.

Saturday’s Best: Experimental Indie Rock Overload at Neumos

When it comes it comes to pairing interesting sounds with flawless vocal harmonies, you’d be hard pressed to find any bands out there matching what Daniel Rossen has been able to create with Grizzly Bear and Department of Eagles.

As luck would have it, Pattern is Movement, one such band that maintains that tough balance of wildly experimental tendencies with moments of sonic beauty, happens to be in town the same night but on a different bill. Thankfully for those looking to maximizing your adventurous rock intake this Saturday, you’ll only need to go up or down some stairs to catch the other act.

3/22 (Saturday) Daniel Rossen @ Neumos

Not gonna lie, readers. If there’s one thing that we like less than the torrential rain we’ve been experiencing, it’s springing forward into Daylight Savings time. Who needs more light during the day when we’re craving the dark of a music venue?

Fortunately, there are lots of great concerts to pick from this week.

3/10 (Monday) Electric Six, Yip Deceiver @Neumos
