Artist of the day: Khora
What kind of band contest has a grand prize where the winner gets to play at 10 a.m. on a Saturday?
Such was the glory brought home by previous Artist of the Day recipient Khora, a Seminole group that plays funky, good-time reggae-rock music that, truth be told, isn't a bad way to start the 97X Next Big Thing concert on Saturday at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre. The band brought out the online vote in a big way to defeat nine other bands en route to the Next Big Thing stage. We salute them.
We're amped for Next Big Thing on Saturday. In case you missed our coverage this week, we had interviews with Sublime With Rome, Young the Giant, The Joy Formidable and AWOLNATION. And here's our overview of the entire show.
