After nearly two months of valiant fighting, we've arrived at this final showdown of the CHIRP Battle of the Bands 2016. In the Last Four, Chicago DIY darlings Ego and Lil Tits went the way of beloved venues from Wally's Word to Animal Kingdom, falling to the twin assaults of indie power poppers The Kickback and hard-charging surf punk Swimsuit Addition. Now, those two will face off for the right to call themselves CHIRP's favorite band for 2016.
Voting for the final round closes on Thursday, May 19 at 6 p.m. There can be only one!
Finalist One: The Kickback Final Round Song: "Sting's Teacher Years" Finish this phrase: "Play Like A _______________ Today": Bookish dude who's really good at Metroid.
Finalist Two: Swimsuit Addition Final Round Song: "Tiara" Finish this phrase: "Play Like A _______________ Today": Heavily armed riot grrl.
