Dia De Los Toadies 2013: Review and Photos

Of all the different live show scenarios, all the varying combinations of performer and setting, there's nothing quite like seeing a band in their hometown. The sixth annual Dia De Los Toadies Festival, a Texas institution, was the perfect hometown hero live music experience. This year, the fest took place for the first time in Toadies' native Fort Worth. Along with its namesake, this Dia lineup included Gary Clark Jr, Eisley, Dirty River Boys, The Burning Hotels, The O's, Pinata Protest, Oil Boom, Baboon, The Cush, These Machines Are Winning, and School Of Rock band Dean's List. Panther Island Pavilion was an ideal and lush setting for a fond Texas farewell to summer.
