SoundBytes: DJ Khaled, Katherine Jenkins, moe. and more
-- DJ Khaled just released a new video for his track Take It To The Head, featuring Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. It was filmed at Universal Studios Orlando's Disaster! ride. Check it out above.
-- Daddy Kool Records is about to host a wickedly awesome in-store event: Lucero's Ben Nichols and Rick Steff, performing an acoustic set this Friday, hours before their band takes the stage at the State Theatre. Click here for details.
-- Fresh off her runner-up finish on Dancing With the Stars, noted popera crossover Katherine Jenkins is coming to the Straz Center in Tampa on March 1, 2013. She'll be joined by Nathan Pacheco. Tickets start at $34.50. Click here for details.
-- Before there was fun., there was moe. The creatively puncutated and capitalized jam band heroes will hit Jannus Live on July 29 -- the same day as the Warped Tour. That shouldn't result in any weird crowd conflicts downtown, should it? Tickets go onsale June 1. Click here.
-- Get ready for Paulapalooza! Ron Paul is planning a three-day festival of "music, entertainment and activism" at the Florida State Fairgrounds from Aug. 24-26, right before the Republican National Convention. Too early to say who might headline, but it does look like noted Paul supporter Kelly Clarkson is already on tour elsewhere that weekend.
