Mosley Wotta Wins Last Band Standing: And the rest is a bit confusing… The 500-plus people who packed
into Boondocks Bar and Grill on Thursday night (July 1) walked away knowing one thing for sure: local hip-hop hero Mosley Wotta had won the three-plus-month competition, which awarded him, among other prizes, a van, a recording contract and a Gibson gui- tar. Organizers said the final vote count was close, but in the end, it was Mosley Wotta who triumphed. But there was a problem with how the other three bands placed and that mix-
up wasn’t fully settled until Tuesday afternoon when Combined Communications brass informed us that the second-place winner was not Empty Space Orchestra, as was announced from the stage, but rather KleverKill. So here’s how Combined Communications told us things got turned upside
down: After the votes were meticulously counted four times, a list of the winner and subsequent runner ups was handed to the emcee, Dori Donoho. The prob- lem was that the list was phrased as such: Third runner up, second runner up and then winner, BUT Donoho read the list off saying “Third place”… ”Second place” etc. Oddly, KleverKill’s name was never announced at all after Mosley Wotta was named champion. But it made sense that Empty Space Orchestra (as well as most others, includ-
ing Source reporters and other members of the media in attendance) walked away thinking they’d won second place, while in reality, they were second runner up, which equals third place. Confused? I think we all were, but here’s the rundown of how the finalists
fared: 2nd place: KleverKill, 3rd place: Empty Space Orchestra, 4th place: Hot Tea Cold. So we’re all on the same page, now, right?
