Salt Lake City, Utah – Tuesday, we're bringing more local music into the studio. King Niko has been crowned "Band of the Year" in the 2011 City Weekly Music Awards. The band wants to "make girls dance," but that doesn't mean the members don't take the music seriously. They join us to talk about the hard work of promoting themselves and of course to play some tunes. We'll also check in with local critics about new albums and other bands that are getting attention.
