about

I (Todd) put together a band of great friends and great musicians for Tonic Ball 2017 to do some psychedelic-metal Beatles covers. Tonic is an amazing all-covers 5-venue all-night music extravaganza in Fountain Square, Indianapolis that benefits Second Helpings, who use surplus food to feed needy families.

We performed a medley of classic cosmic Beatles tunes, and the rehearsal version is taken from our final rehearsal the night before the show. Also included is the warts-and-all live version from the night of Tonic, a seriously amazing experience that we all hope the attendees enjoyed, and now you the listener will enjoy as well.

I also included an intimate, honest, unperfected version of Across The Universe, right from my bedroom, in keeping with the cosmic theme of the other songs.

Within You Without You (George Harrison/The Beatles)
