Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase Finalists: Tyrannosaurus Chicken

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 1:00 PM

I still can't figure out whether this ramshackle duo is the band to beat or the finals' dark horse upsetter to watch out for. The group swept the first night — the only decisive victory of all four rounds — and still stands out from the competition with its fantastically wrecked blues revisionism that's reckless and sloppy and ear-bendingly musical all at once.

Why Tyrannosaurus Chicken will win: Because accessibility isn't a bad thing. The group's "modern sounds in country and western music" are so good, they don't need an angle.
