|Cara was lucky and won two tickets to Tonic Ball, as well as a VIP pre-party - woohoo! Thanks Nuvo!|
|The VIP Party was held at the Fountain Square Theatre, which was also one of the music venues for the night.|
|There was free food from Liter House and free beer from Sun King Brewing Co.|
|It's a lovely venue that we hadn't been to in quite a while.|
|After the VIP Party, the theater became the venue for the Johnny Cash stage. We like his music, so we stayed here for a bit.|
|One of the things Second Helpings does is provide free meals to those who need them.|
|We decided we should try to check out all five venues. Just outside the theater, though, we encountered a roaming brass band |
that reminded us of being in New Orleans.
|Next door at Radio Radio was the Pearl Jam stage.|
|We had to wait in a short line to get in here because it was always at capacity.|
|Next we went over to Pioneer and the Beyonce stage. We didn't have to wait in line to get in, but there was no chance of |
getting drinks here because the bar was packed.
|By this time in the evening, most venues were at capacity. There were long lines at the last two venues, White Rabbit (the |
ABBA stage) and The Hi-Fi (the Elton John stage), so we didn't even try to get in there.
|We ended the evening at the Johnny Cash stage in Fountain Square Theatre - there was plenty of room there all night, and we found a nice spot in the balcony.|
|One of our favorite acts was the Skyfall Steel Orchestra - their instrumental, all-drum rendition of "Ring of Fire" was great!|
