Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase Finalists: Year of the Tiger

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 1:19 PM


The second round got an injection of hard, electronic rock that's viscerally assaulting, unsettlingly dystopian and undeniably catchy. All four members of the band are old hands on Little Rock stages, used to this kind of acclaim from their other bands, notably Underclaire and The Moving Front. But this type of fresh project could be a source of new inspiration for the local vets.

Why Year of the Tiger will win: Because in music, intensity always sells. And these guys have intensity by the amp full.

Listen: "Flesh and Blood"

Check out video of their semi-final performance after the jump.
