Last night's showcase: Tsar Bomba

Tsar Bomba

Tsar Bomba brought the sunshine-y jangle pop to Round 3 last night. Or as judge Epiphany summed them up: "Masters of the under 3-minute ditties."

Guest judges Rachel Ammons and Smilin' Bob Lewis — aka 2012 showcase winner Tyrannosaurus Chicken — saw "good interaction between guitarists. Great vocals, love the bass, very tight. Good save on the broken string. Good original songs. Those boys plow a groove a mile wide."

Judge Cheyenne Matthews wrote, "Let's go see Tsar Bomba on a date. A super-sexy date. Call me!" while judge Sammy Williams described the band's blend of harmonizing and occasional screaming as "Crosby, Stills, Nash and Johnny Rotten."
