Toads and monsters
Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space and www.1moe.com’s concert series continues this week with the bluesy rock of Big Head Todd and the Monsters and the laid-back tunes of Toad the Wet Sprocket (pictured). The latter band found success in the early 1990s with hit singles such as “All I Want,” “Walk on the Ocean” and “Fall Down.” The group disbanded in 1998 but has intermittently regrouped for shows since 2002. The concert begins 8 p.m. Aug. 18 at Hawkins Amphitheater at Bartley Ranch Regional Park, 6000 Bartley Ranch Road. Tickets are $50-$60. Call 828-6642 or visit www.1moe.com.
