A&E News, Dec. 16 

We're looking for local acts to enter our annual battle of the bands, the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase, to be held beginning Jan. 27 of next year at Sticky Fingerz and concluding on March 4 at Revolution. As usual, the contest is open to any act (solo or group) in Arkansas that specializes in original material. We encourage comers from all genres.

Christmas Eve, just a little more than a week away, is the deadline for submission. Uploading artist/band info and mp3s of your material online, via a link at arktimes.com/showcase11, is the easiest method. We've also got an entry form in the paper, so, if you're averse to the digital world, you can fill out that form and mail it and a CD in.

The way the competition works: Reps from the Times and Sticky Fingerz/Rev whittle the submissions down to a group of semifinalists, then each week, four acts square off before five judges (four regular judges and one weekly guest judge). Each week's winner moves on to the finals.

Write showcase@arktimes.com with questions.
