We are excited to have Supastition (a.k.a. Kam Moye) performing at Cola-Con this year as well as the other dope indie artists we have setup to accompany the headliners. I know people have asked questions about when and where people are performing and it took a while because thangs happen to the wire with these shows (between booking flights and contracts…sheesh!) But anyways here’s what we’re looking like for the performers touching the stage for Cola-Con.

Open Mike & Author Penzwell 8:45-9:15pm

It’s great to have such amazing people involved w/ Cola-Con. It’s even better when they are hometown heroes (originally from Aiken, SC and a Gamecock), model Nikia Phoenix will attend Cola-Con apart of the “Ladies First” panel speaking about her experience in modeling, blogging and being awesome. She will also head a workshop for aspiring models attempting to get involved in the field. Check out her blog www.modelliberation.com. You’re welcome.

If there’s a handbook on how to be a well respected and talented indie artist in the current music climate, Atlanta’s Brittany Bosco could do a clinic. Maybe that’s why it was a no brainer to get her to be on a panel for Cola-Con as well as grace the stage showcasing her muiltifaceted abilities combining everything from hip-hop sensibilities, to soul and electronic music. Check out some of her music below. You’re welcome.
