In 1993, after being noticed by Interscope Records on the strength of their debut EP Pleather, Texas post-grunge rock band the Toadies began recording their debut full-length Rubberneck. Proving to be one of the most enduring and definitive rock albums of the 1990s, the Fort Worth four-piece landed themselves betwixt the biggest rock names of the decade including Foo Fighters, Nirvana and Third Eye Blind.

But y’all already know this story, and even though these dudes show up in SA almost once a year or so (Josabi’s in 2014, Maverick Music Festival in 2015), They’re still worth seeing if not to rock out to their hit “Possum Kingdom.”

$25, Thursday December 28, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, The Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., theaztectheatre.com.
