Rubberneckin'

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Toadies will perform Rubberneck in its entirety at Sister (407 Central NW) on Tuesday, July 29. Lazily categorized as “post-grunge,” the songs that comprise their platinum-selling debut album are more intricate and timeless than this subgenre would suggest. It's a clever balance of slightly progressive roughness with a Southern-fried tinge, all wrapped up in a sinister bow, thanks to the macabre, cerebral lyrics of front man Vaden Todd Lewis. Without a single weak track, it only seems proper that the album be played front-to-back. The Toadies are still going strong, having released three noteworthy albums since reforming in 2008. In a recent Alibi interview with drummer Mark Reznicek, he touched on the band's signature sound, created by the tendency to veer away from standard 4/4 time. “It can come naturally or by accident,” but the goal is for the listener to “not even know it's odd. If there's a way we can screw up a time signature and make it work, we'll explore it.” With doctored crap being passed off as music these days, it's easy to become cynical about live music. Rest assured, Toadies will get that vampire blood pumping through your veins, raise the hair on the back of your neck and leave you at the end of it all with a dirty, satisfying feeling. Tickets for the 21-and-up show will run you $20, and the show kicks off at 9pm. (Constance Moss)
