SoundBytes: Behemoth, Evan Dando, Wanee Festival and more
-- Coming to the State Theatre on Jan. 11: Polish black metal heroes Behemoth. THE METAL WILL NOT BE STOPPED. Tickets are $17-$20.
-- This year's Wanee Festival is scheduled for April 16-17 in Live Oak. Last year's headliners included Allman Brothers Band, Buddy Guy and Gov't Mule. Keep an eye out here for this year's linup announcement.
-- But tragically, for all you grunge fans out there, Alice in Chains are not coming to Florida.
-- 97X has announced the winners for this year's Next Big Thing local band search and they are ... drumroll please ... Naples' Vega Under Fire and Bradenton's Red Light Run. Not exactly "local," but eh, still good. They'll get to play alongside Panic at the Disco, the Used, Metric and more at Next Big Thing, Dec. 6 at the Ford Amphitheatre. Bully for them.
