THE TOXIC FROGS IN SATURDAY’S OPENING CONCERT AT LA CROISILLE SUR BRIANCE’S FETE PATRONALE
The Toxic Frogs will be performing the opening concert of La Croisille’s Fete Patronale, at the village sports ground on Saturday 12 August at 9pm. This will be the return to the commune of the all-female Celtic punk rock group, with their festive and explosive style, igniting the crowds wherever they go, while raising awareness of current social issues.
It’s a safe bet that, as in 2022, The Toxic Frogs will be giving their all on stage, finishing their concert to the applause of a delighted audience fully committed to their cause.
An excellent concert, which got La Croisille moving and motivated a crowd that was a little slow to get going until then.
Their recipe on the stage is punchy, with humour, energy and rhythm, and with a good dose of Irish music thrown in for good measure. It is Celtic punk rock performed by five young women with vocals, fiddles, electric banjo, guitar, bass, drums…
Being five women brings a different aspect to the stage than masculine groups – people aren’t used to seeing all-female rock bands. There are not many of them in France, or indeed elsewhere in the world.
It is still a very masculine domain. The Toxic Frogs have an element of ‘Girl Power’ to them.
Musically, their influences are punk, and rock, some salsa, and even more Rage Against the Machine, Pink Floyd, Pixies.
And, of course, with their own style, the Mahones, the Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly are all direct influences of the Toxic Frogs, but the latter isn’t limited to pure Irish punk all the time, one can hear all their difference musical influences during the concert in La Croisille.
Cut out for the stage, the girls perform their increasingly socially engaged music, with raging, catchy riffs – proving that it is possible to be feminine, sexy and blast out a big sound all at the same time. The band has successfully performed on more than 200 French and European stages since 2015…
One piece of advice: get some earplugs! – just in case you’re up at the front of the stage! Wherever you are, be prepared for some lively action!
Above all, expect a great moment in the La Croisille 2023 festival, as the Toxic Frogs fill you with good humour and positive energy.
We can’t wait!
