Tyler Clark presents: Local Mythologies writesCHIRP Battle of the Bands 2016: The Last Four

Well, we've arrived. From 32 bands, the field of the second-annual CHIRP Battle of the Bands has been winnowed to The Last Four. Let's see who they are and how they got here: 

  • From the Wilco Regional: The Kickback, who tripped up verbose MC Psalm One.
  • From the Kanye Regional: Lil Tits, who torched 2015 Last Four band Flesh Panthers
  • From the Chance Regional: Ego, who continued their DIY assault with a takedown of Tortoise.
  • From the Mavis Regional: Swimsuit Addition, who upset the field's last remaining #1 seed with a victory over Mavis Staples.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have four possible winners on our hands. You know what to do. Voting for the Last Four closes on Saturday, April 30 at 6 p.m. Let's get cookin'.
