Sedaris to Wordsworth 


Humorist and public radio favorite David Sedaris will be stopping by WordsWorth Books Dec. 5 for a book signing. In the past, Sedaris has had no problem selling out large-ish venues such as the Walton Arts Center. So to keep a lid on things, WordsWorth will be issuing tickets. The store will give out one ticket per customer for each Sedaris book purchased at the store from now until Dec. 4, while supplies last. The store owners stressed that while there might be a short reading, the event is primarily a book signing. Also, leave your cameras at home, because Sedaris doesn't really want to have his picture made with you.

Just in time for his favorite holiday of the year, 607 has a new album. It's called "Yik3S!" and it's streaming on Bandcamp at www.iam607.bandcamp.com. Big K.R.I.T.'s "Return of 4eva" has been best album of the year by far, 607 said. With "Yik3S!", he aimed to top it. And he's confident he's succeeded. One track is called "607 is the Best Lyricist ... PERIOD."

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, which means Christmas is nigh, which means before you can say "two-day hangover" you'll be tying one on and toasting the new year and wondering just how in the hell 2011 managed to sneak past you so quickly. And of course, with another new year comes another Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase. This marks the contest's 20th year. Here's how it'll go down: your trusty Times staff and the folks from Stickyz and Revolution pare down the field to a gaggle of semi-finalists; starting Jan. 26, four of those acts will square off each week at Stickyz and five judges will select a winner. Each week's winner moves on to the finals at Revolution. The winner of the final round will receive a bevy of excellent prizes and a drink named in his, her or their honor. So if you are an Arkansas-based musical act (solo or band) performing original material in any genre, you should go ahead and enter at www.arktimes.com/showcase12.
