When: Fri., Aug. 1, 5-7 p.m. 2014
We’re mega fans of Tonic Ball, the benefit for Second Helpings that takes over Fountain Square every November. They’re kicking off this year’s tribute to Velvet Underground, Fleetwood Mac and Nirvana (and associated acts) with a party on First Friday at the Hi-Fi. Apache Dropout, Brian Deer and Phyllis will cover some of those tunes on Friday – and bring your wallet, because Tonic Ball tickets will be available for $20 that night. Bands looking to play Tonic should know signups for Tonic open that night as well. Jon Rogers (DJ JunRa) will DJ.
