Toad feels like the kind of place that's been there forever, but the little hole-in-the-wall has only been around for 20 years. Despite its small size, it's been an important spot for local music and musicians. Session Americana, which started out as a bunch of musicians enjoying a regular Sunday jam at Toad, is a great example. Toad's 20th Anniversary Week celebrates its two decades of existence with music and partying every night.

June 11: 7:30 p.m., The Brothers McCann. 10 p.m., Blue Ribbons with saxophonist Dana Colley.
June 12: 7 p.m., Fandango. 10 p.m., Abbie Barrett and The Last Date.
June 13: 7:30 p.m., Todd Thibaud. 10 p.m., Baker Thomas Band with Tom Bianchi.
June 14: 10 p.m., Jesse Dee Band.
