sowFLo came a close second with their breezy take on No Doubt's "Underneath It All". Every band from Marvlec to Perfect Flaw to Vane rocked the house with their sets, but it was ultimately Khora who stole the show with their version of Gwen Stefani & the boys' classic "Don't Speak." Khora played last year's Ultimate Band Series Finals when they were crowned as the Judges' Pick. Khora will advance to the August 18 Finals along with The Northwest (Week 1 Winners) and next week's winning band and the Judge's Pick.
Special thanks to our Ultimate Band Series 2012 panel of judges... Jocelyn Brenner (Hyde Park Village), Joran Slane Oppelt (Creative Loafing), Carole Liparoto (Tampa Bay Times) and special guest judge Jesse Kage (The Kage Kult, 98 Rock).
