2012 AT Showcase Round 1: The Holy Shakes

Posted By on Fri, Jan 27, 2012 at 1:58 PM

The Holy Shakes impressed the judges last night. In fact, the band was the No. 1 pick of every judge, decisively taking Round 1 and moving on to the finals, Fri. March 2 at Revolution.

Guest judge Mary Chamberlin: "True Punks. Flippant disregard for 'coolness,' studied but unique." and "My record collection called, it wants The Holy Shakes."

Epiphany "knew that frontman had to come out of that leather jacket sooner or later because he was putting in work."

Perhaps Cheyenne Matthews put it best: "... more like Holy Shit! Holy Shit!!!"
