And Every Angry Word Is Like A Cigarette

I was never really the biggest fan of Toad The Wet Sprocket. I mean honestly. How could anyone admit they liked a band with a name as horrible as that? That's like saying you're Hoobastank's #1 fan. I did however, get a chance to see lead singer Glen Phillips perform a solo show last year in Los Angeles. And I realized something that night. This guy can write a great song. And without a full band to overpower him, his voice became this sort of mellow comfort for me. I dunno. Something just clicked that night I guess. Anyway, for your listening (dis)pleasure, here are some select tracks from a solo show he did at a club in LA called Largo this past February. Enjoy!

You are aware that Toad the Wet Sprocket is lifted directly from Monty Python (it was the name of a band in a fake news report)? I don't know if it makes it any less worse, but at least it isn't quite as senseless.

toad the wet sprocket..because of the name was heavily underrated....if you check their first album...bread and cirus...youd see that glen and the guys made songs that some bands now are trying to pull off
