Toad The Wet Sprocket (#405H) Duration: 55:49 STEREO TVPG

It's no surprise that Glen Phillips refers to this band of musical brothers as more of a family business than a rock band! Infinity Hall Live audiences will hear a collection of their favorite songs from the band's hit albums Fear and Dulcinea as well as exciting new tracks from their latest release, New Constellation. Never self-indulgent, TTWS charms the audience with the upbeat "Good Intensions", the galloping rhythm in "Windmills", a revelatory sadness in the new "California Wasted" and the nostalgic closer "Walk on the Ocean". Go behind the scenes and listen to Glen Phillips talk about the band's humble beginnings, the challenges of touring and what he hopes the fans take away from their music. With more than 25 years of writing and recording together, this concert proves that Toad the Wet Sprocket never fails to deliver the signature sound and pensive lyrics that solidified their position as one of the great indie rock bands of the 90's.
