Arkansas entertainment in 2012, an A-Z list 

The year-end roundup.

Page 5 of 5

Y is for "YIK3LIF3!" 607's follow-up to last year's "YIK3S!" which careful readers will no doubt recall as the "Y" entry on last year's A-Z list. But hey, as long as Adrian Tillman keeps releasing albums of this quality, he'll have a spot on this list no matter the title. Standout tracks from "YIK3LIF3!" include the withering "AK-47 Percent," the synth-heavy "Puppy Breath" and "Just a Man" and the eerily minimalist "Pit Bull Gums," which recalls Terry Riley or Philip Glass and ends with a "that's what she said" joke.

Z is for Zero, as in that was how many tickets were left for the inaugural Arkansas Times Craft Beer Festival. Not to toot our own horn too much, but the event was a huge success, with 800 people sampling 150 labels brought in by 30 breweries from around the country. They ranged from Arkansas favorites like Diamond Bear and Vino's to giants of craft beer, such as Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, Anchor, Goose Island and Sam Adams, as well as smaller but highly respected brewers like Ommegang and North Coast. Add in food and live music, and what you've got is an annual event to look forward to every fall.
