OGDEN — The night will rock at Ogden Amphitheater starting at 7 p.m. Friday, July 6, when a concert and a battle of the bands comes to town.
King Niko, picked as City Weekly’s 2011 Band of the Year, headlines the show, with Indigo 7, Ever Since Tomorrow and Here For the Weekend vying in the competition.
Indigo 7 formed at Ogden High School and placed third in the Standard-Examiner Battle of the Bands this year. Ever Since Tomorrow hails from Park City; Here for the Weekend is from North Sanpete High School.
The winner of the July 6 battle will compete in the fall with winners from the June and August Friday Night Rockstar events at the amphitheater. The overall winner will open for a tribute band rock festival at the Ogden Amphitheater in September.
