After a full day of tribute and original rock bands, and Hoobastank, the crowd at Clay’s Park was in the mood to rock. Saturday was the second day of rock music, sun and beer drinking for many members of the audience, but if they were tired in any way, they didn’t show it. The show was packed with energy, both from the band and the crowd. The sun had set and it had cooled off a little bit by 9:30 when TOAD took the stage to heat things up again. Formed in 2001, Theory has released three albums so far, all of which have become successful. They are planning on recording their fourth album in the upcoming months, in between this North American tour and one in European early next year. TOAD is definitely keeping busy and they wouldn’t have it any other way. The show on Saturday couldn’t have been better. It was a mix of songs from their entire catalog. Throughout the night they mixed in their biggest hits, instead of playing a bunch of songs that people might not know and then bombarding the audience with their hits at the end of the show. This way the audience was into the whole set. By far the most popular song of the night was “I Hate My Life” off of their most recent album Scars & Souvenirs. The crowd joined in and sang along with so much passion and feeling that you would think the band wrote the song specifically for this audience. Don’t get the wrong idea about Theory or the audience that night though, they really aren’t a bunch of miserable people who just complain all the time. The crowd also loved more positive songs like “So Happy,” a song about moving on after a relationship is over, and “Santa Monica”, another song that is about a relationship ending. Tyler Connolly, the lead singer and guitar player, said before starting the song, “There is a place on our website where you guys can tell us what songs you want us to play, and this is one of the most requested.” Theory of a Deadman might be one of the most popular rock bands out there today, but they aren’t arrogant or obnoxious about it. Instead they take the time to thank their fans for listening to them and coming out to see them between just about every song. “We would be nothing without you!” they shouted at one point during the night. It’s nice to see a band that understands that and lets their fans know. Theory of a Deadman knows how to put on a great show and make their fans happy.
