It seems that a good chunk of the venues that Glen Phillips—frontman of Toad the Wet Sprocket—has brought his solo gigs to have shut down in recent years. Hideaway Cafe and The Attic at Rock Brothers are both history at this point, and though we’re keeping our fingers crossed for St. Pete’s Bayboro Brewing (where he played last winter), we don’t think Phillips’ appearance in downtown Clearwater with Toad will be the last we see of the historic venue.
The band behind “Walk on the Ocean” is currently on the road promoting a new greatest hits record—ala Billy Joel—properly titled All You Want, and even without original drummer Randy Guss (who retired from touring in 2017 due to a worsening struggle with Osteogenesis imperfecta, a bone disease), you’ll be in the presence of a ‘90s band that provided relief from the likes of the Backstreet Boys and Nsync back in the day.
