About the Show:
Toad the Wet Sprocket (Glen Phillips on lead vocals and guitar, Dean Dinning on bass and vocals, Todd Nichols on lead guitar and vocals, and Randy Guss on the drums) share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording and touring on albums over the course of those 25 years. After Bread & Circus, they followed with Pale in 1990, fear in ’91, Dulcinea in 1994, and Coil in 1997, as well as some compilations and rarities compilations along the way. While most will feel the comforting familiarity of the Billboard-charting hits, “Walk on the Ocean,” “All I Want,” “Something’s Always Wrong,” and “Fall Down,” new fans will also be well familiar with their new hits such as “California Wasted” which continues to climb the charts. Even with a period of the band members weaving in and out of each other’s musical lives, the same creative curiosity that inspired the band to form in 1986 has brought them full circle to come back together again. Toad the Wet Sprocket’s last album New Constellation, which was launched with an impressive #3 most funded Kickstarter Campaign in music for the year, was the bands’ first new album in 16 years when released in 2013, and features the singles “New Constellation,” “The Moment,” and “California Wasted.” The band’s current release, the EP Architect of Ruin was released in June of 2015.
San Francisco indie rocker Megan Slankard has independently sold nearly 40,000 copies of her five self-released albums, and she is currently touring extensively across the US, performing brand new songs from her planned 6th independent release in late 2018. Her fifth, and latest release, Running on Machinery, was recorded with the help of Nashville producer Alex Wong (Vienna Teng, Delta Rae), and her preceding album, A Token of the Wreckage, was recorded with help from David Bryson (Counting Crows) and Jerry Becker (Train).
Megan and her songwriting have received national and international recognition: in 2017 she won first place in the Unsigned Only Music Competition (AAA Category) and was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, in 2016 she was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, and in 2015 she was a two-time "Vox Pop" winner in the Independent Music Awards, a finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition, and a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest.
Megan's adventures have also included a 50-date Guitar Center tour sponsored by BOSE, touring with Dire Straits co-founder David Knopfler throughout Europe, duets with Pat Monahan and Train, co-writing and performing on a song for KFOG's Breast Cancer Research charity drive (featuring featured guest singers Hozier, Florence Welch, Steve Earle, Grace Potter and more,) playing electric guitar on Jimmy Kimmel Live with Jeff Campbell, singing the National Anthem at AT&T Park for the San Francisco Giants on three separate occasions, singing on Glen Keane's animated short Duet, and even participating on two episodes of TLC's reality makeover series, What NOT to Wear.
