They will be performing a FREE concert on Saturday, June 27 at the 1st Street Stage. Toad the Wet Sprocket will take the stage first at 9 p.m. followed by Smash Mouth about 10:30 p.m. The legendary downtown Las Vegas entertainment venue is this summer’s alternative destination through Labor Day weekend with a free concert series that showcases a stellar lineup of bands that take music to the edge.

Smash Mouth
Formed in late 1994, Smash Mouth began recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood, Calif. In June 1997, Smash Mouth signed to Interscope Records when label brass caught wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being added to L.A. radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one spin of their song “Walkin’ on the Sun.” Smash Mouth’s major-label debut Fush Yu Mang goes more than double platinum and sets the table for what most consider their masterpiece, the brilliant follow-up album Astrolounge. Boasting three top-ten hits (“All-Star,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”), sales for Astrolounge are nearly double than their debut album, approaching quadruple platinum status. Smash Mouth’s third eponymous Interscope release features the ecstatic first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I’m a Believer” which was featured on the Shrek soundtrack. The band most recently released the album Magic and continue has focused on touring and entertaining troops in Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

Toad the Wet Sprocket
Named in honor of a sketch by the Monty Python comedy troupe, Toad the Wet Sprocket became one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the early ’90s, boasting a contemporary folk-pop sound that wielded enough melody and R.E.M.-styled jangle to straddle both the modern rock and adult contemporary markets. Singer Glen Phillips, guitarist Todd Nichols, bassist Dean Dinning and drummer Randy Guss formed the group in 1986 in their native Santa Barbara, Calif. After years of persistent touring, Toad the Wet Sprocket went mainstream with the 1991 album Fear as the single “All I Want” became a Top 20 hit. Another single from the LP, “Walk on the Ocean,” fared similarly well, and the combination pushed Fear to platinum sales. Three years later Toad returned with the album Dulcinea which generated a third Top 40 hit with the single “Fall Down.” The band continues to tour and most recently released their first album of new material in 16 years with New Constellation.
