Counting Crows, of course, hit the big time in 1993 with their huge single "Mr. Jones" and their great album "August and Everything After." They've posted strong sales ever since, and one of their songs was nominated for an Oscar ("Accidentally in Love," which was used in "Shrek 2") and they're known for energetic, improvisational shows. They've got a new studio album coming out in the fall.
Toad the Wet Sprocket has been around since the late '80s, with the same four members. They're a solid indie band with a devoted following.
