Summer Concert Series FRIDAY LIVE! at the FACTORY
Live Band Tonic
Friday June 03, 2011 At 5:00 pm
FRIDAY LIVE! at the FACTORY:
Six Top 10 singles. Over 4 million records sold.
Grammy nominations, platinum albums,
numerous awards and hit songs around the
world, plus the #1 most-played rock song of
1998. Tonic was a musical powerhouse,
merging the raw honesty of rock to unabashed
melody…and ushering rock n roll into a new millennium.
Many bands would be content with that sort of history. Not Tonic. The band is back in the studio after a two-year break, working on a follow up to their last album, Grammy-nominated Head On Straight.

Don’t miss a single day of the best craft beer week in North Carolina, the 5th Annual Charlotte Craft Beer Week! During March 14th – 22nd, you’ll have access to over 100 beer events all around the Queen City.
CCBW was founded with the intention of sharing the craft beer message. With the help of craft beer industry groups and businesses (which abound in Charlotte), it offers North Carolina some of the best hop and barley themed events in the state.
CCBW also aims to educate new and seasoned participants on the craft beer scene so there will be plenty of opportunities to sharpen and expand your beer knowledge. Each event is selected and crafted purposefully to incorporate the many facets of craft beer culture.
In anticipation of the upcoming festivities, Darrin Pikarsky, the founder of CCBW, was quoted as saying "I'm very excited to live in a city that has seen rapid growth in the craft beer industry. The Charlotte region is now known on a national level for it’s great craft beers. Two of Charlotte's own breweries brought home medals from The Great American Beer Festival in Denver Colorado recently. Charlotte Craft Beer Week is going to celebrate that success and many of the best craft beers from across The United States!"
