Don’t forget those infamous Saturday night dance parties, a big hit with the college crowd.
Touted as "where the legends play," Toad's Place opened its doors in 1975 and has become an institution of the Connecticut music scene. Almost every major band has graced the stage, including The Rolling Stones, U2, and Bob Dylan, and the eclectic booking style ensures that there will be something for everyone. Although the small space can feel crowded, Toad's is famous for providing great bands in a unique and intimate setting. The venue still has performances by national and local recording artists as well as dance parties special nights of the week.
