Show of the week » The past 28 years have been an up-and-down ride for Toad the Wet Sprocket, the California alt-rock band that took its name facetiously from a sketch by "Monty Python’s" Eric Idle and just kept going with it. After forming in 1986, the band’s heyday was from 1989 to 1998, when it released five albums (two of them platinum-sellers) and a bevy of singles — the biggest, "All I Want," went as high as No. 15 on the Billboard charts in 1992. The band broke up for a while, but its members (lead vocalist/guitarist Glenn Phillips, lead guitarist Todd Nichols, bassist Dean Dunning and drummer Randy Guss) kept touring together and formally reunited in 2009. Last year, the band released its first new album in years, "New Constellation." Opening the show is Jonathan Kingham.
