After a certain point, writing about an annual, block-busting event like Tonic Ball becomes a numbers game. How many bands will perform, how many venues will open doors, how many meals for Second Helpings – the food rescue nonprofit that it all supports – will funds raised provide? So, this year, like we did in 2012, we embrace the numbers rundown and present to you 13 facts for Tonic 13.

A couple of additional details: songs by Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks, Nirvana, Foo Fighters and the Velvet Underground/Lou Reed will be covered by local bands at the Hi-Fi, Radio Radio, White Rabbit Cabaret and Fountain Square Theater (with NUVO's own Ed Wenck hosting the Velvet Underground stage). Please note Tonic Gallery and Tiny Tonic went down last week – there's just too much to pack into one Friday night these days. We've got a gallery of images from the now-auctioned Tonic Gallery on, plus more info on the bands playing, a complete schedule and photos from many Tonic Balls past. Friday night's event is (sadly) sold out.

And now, on to the facts:
