About seven or eight years ago the Toadies literally changed my life. In honor of a new set of post-breakup gigs, hear some Toadies covers and b-sides from the vault. Let the nostalgia flow...

Toadies - Not In Love (Talking Heads)
Toadies - Cowboy Song (Thin Lizzy)
Toadies - Cars (Gary Numan)
Toadies - Stop It

Mark Hughes from Baboon will be filling in on bass, as Lisa is still apparently M.I.A. So here's another cover song, just because I'm on a roll.

Baboon - Gates of Steel (Devo)

If i had 400 dollars, i'd be right at the rail screaming out UNATTRACTIVE.

I always miss the reunion shows cause they're 21+ or I don't have enough to fly over there.

You only live once, and what are credit cards for..

Have a shitton of fun. and post some mp3's of the show!!
