Toad the Wet Sprocket
- Where the folk-pop band got that name: from a fictitious band in a Monty Python sketch
- How you got to know them: through their contemplative hits “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean” from 1991’s fear
- How you got to know them even better: from singing along to the infectious “Something’s Always Wrong” from their fourth album, Dulcinea
- Their sound: socially-conscious lyrics; songs about nostalgia and love; lead singer Glen Phillips’ emotive tenor
- Why they should win the award for Friendliest Band Breakup Ever: even during their 10-year hiatus, the members continued working together in one-off projects, with sporadic reunions here and there
- Their latest project: New Constellation, an album that was funded through Kickstarter
An oasis for arts-loving crowds tired of taking malfunctioning teleporters to the city, the cavernous, recently renovated Paramount draws in major acts to spare fans stressful commutes. The venue buzzes with a true rock 'n' roll vibe, beaming with a nocturnal color scheme decorated with whimsical local art and exposed brick walls.
