Congrats to Little Rock metal band Enchiridion, who closed out last night's round of the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase with a powerful and punishing set, winning over the judges in the process. They'll join Open Fields, Ghost Bones, Becoming Elephants and American Lions at the showcase finals, which will be held next Friday, March 6, at Revolution, 9 p.m., $5.
Congrats to Little Rock's Open Fields, who won the first round of the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase last night with an awesome set of sunshine pop, jagged psych-rock and all-around good vibes. Their singer at one point paused to thank "God and the devil and 'My Dog Skip' and 'That Darn Cat' and all manner of highs and lows," and for a moment there it was as though we all understood and also didn't understand, and either way it was good.

There is a new, reigning Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase winner, and it is Mad Nomad, who were brutally great at the Finals Friday night, dominating a pretty impressively competitive field that also included Peckerwolf, John Willis, Duckstronaut and John Neal Rock 'n' Roll.
John Neal Rock&Roll secured the fifth and final spot in the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase finals last night. See video of a performance by the band and the night's three runners-up below and make plans to attend the finals, 8 p.m. Friday, March 7 at Revolution.
Little Rock's Duckstronaut took Round 4 of the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase last night with washboard and dulcimer in tow. They'll go on to the finals with Peckerwolf, John Willis, Mad Nomad and next week's winner.
Little Rock will next week host a series of meetings on the use of technology to tackle global problems led by Club de Madrid — a coalition of more than 100 former democratic former presidents and prime ministers from around the world — and the P80 Group, a coalition of large public pension and sovereign wealth funds founded by Prince Charles to combat climate change.
Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway) was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
