Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase Round 1: Judges commentary on Tyrannosaurus Chicken

Sometimes it's best to let the audience reaction speak for itself, like this comment from this weekend.

For those fans who didn't catch this set, it was kind of like having watched this beautiful vibrant dangerous caterpillar, a caterpillar that was content being the greatest caterpillar around, and then having looked away for a second and finding out that while you weren't looking, this caterpillar snuck away and went into a cocoon and then emerged as this enormous monster moth of flame and dirt that burned and sullied the souls of everyone within a mile radius.

The Barling-based busking duo of Tyrannosaurus Chicken absolutely slayed a packed house while winning over the judges panel, racking up an average score of 44/50 from the panel. They advance to the final round on Friday, March 4, at Revolution.

Check out what the judges had to say about the first winners of the Showcase after the jump.
