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.
