Well, here we are. The Last Four is over, and only two bands remain. Unlike other rounds, there were no tiebreakers or close calls. Instead, dominance came in two familiar forms: the fiery, two-headed garage onslaught of White Mystery, and the boozy, neo-sockhop allure of Modern Vices.
Though they fought valiantly, Twin Peaks and Flesh Panthers fell to these twin beasts, but they'll be back next year. For now, they sit on the sidelines, awaiting the outcome of the final round's titanic contest.
UPDATE 4/20: When the dust settled on Friday, we were all tied up. Thus, like any exciting athletic event that's just not ready to end, we're going to overtime. Voting for OT closes at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21.
Finalist One: White Mystery
Final Round Song: "Dubble Dragon"
Why They're Unstoppable: Can probably read each other's minds. That's how siblings work, right?
Finalist Two: Modern Vices
Final Round Song: "Cheap Style"
Why They're Unstoppable: Bass player secretly a time-lost James Dean out on a Quantum Leap-style adventure.
