Step back into the days of Bread and Circus with this Rolling Stone article from 1989 into the band’s founding and early years.
The latest video post is from March 1990. Although the exact location isn’t known, this clip was believed to have been shot in Decatur, Georgia on March 17th when Toad was on tour opening for Michael Penn. Featuring Dean Dinning on clarinet and Glen Phillips on bass, this performance is an early and rare performance of a Pale classic.
Toad’s fall 1997 tour saw them dust off classics that had been on the shelves for year. The first show of the tour featured a song that, according to Dean, had never been played life before. “Always Changing Probably” was played a few more times on the tour and then disappeared back into the archives with only one known performance of the “Bread and Circus” classic during the spring 2003 tour at the Avalon in Boston, MA.
