Back in January, the Toadies announced that, for the fourth year in a row now, they will be hosting another Dia de Los Toadies affair this summer on August 26 and 27.

Then, in February, the band announced the location: This year's event will be taking place this year  at Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels.

So maybe it makes sense then that, on the first day of March, the band's let loose some more information -- if only to keep up with the pattern. And boy did they: Today, the band announced the first two acts set to join them at this year's festival -- and they're no slouches. Quite the opposite, actually.

Expect many adds in the coming weeks and months, but for now, salivate over the fact that Austin's Ume (who will be joining the Toadies at our own event this month) and The Sword are the first two bands that have been announced to join the bill. Loudest Dia de Los Toadies yet? Quite possibly.

No word yet on tickets, though. But we imagine that will change shortly.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
