Toads Place - Updates


Mos Def
Friday, October 3, 8:00 PM
Postponed until Oct. 3 - All tickets purchased for August 7 will be honored. Refunds will be available until Sept. 8, 2008.

Mos Def is one of a handful of artists who have breached the gap between underground and mainstream, music and film, small venues and main stage festival performances, and has done so with incredible success. Beginning with music in the mid 90’s, Mos Def found himself to be one of the primary hip-hop artists leading a charge from back alley rhymes to featured spots on radio and MTV. This is one performance not to be missed here at Toad’s Place of Richmond where we welcome Mos Def to our line-up “Where the Legends Play.”

Just Announced!

Broken Social Scene
Tuesday, October 21, 8PM
If there’s ever been a definition of what a supergroup is, Broken Social Scene surely fits the bill. The 15+ members credited in the band also contribute to numerous other successful bands or solo projects, including: Fiest, Metric, Apostle of Hustle, Do Make Say Think, Jason Collett, American Analog Set, and Stars, just to name a few. BSS is well known for an almost chaotic composition of music influenced by the eclectic backgrounds of the musicians, but to most the soundscape they create is nothing short of masterful, beautiful, and fun.
