MUSICIANS SHOWCASE PAST WINNERS
9 p.m. Stickyz.

So the 2012 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase is coming up, and it’s the 20th anniversary of the event. That’s a lot of bands over the years, and the crew here at Times HQ decided it’d be kinda cool to put together a show with some of the previous years’ winners.

The Big Cats (1997 champs) probably need no introduction, but just in case, the band’s been playing hook-filled rock ’n’ roll for nearly as long as the showcase has been around and just released “The Ancient Art of Leaving: High & Low,” the first of a two-part album.

Adrian Tillman — a.k.a. 607 (2008 winner) — is the tireless renaissance man of the Central Arkansas hip hop scene, whose latest album, “Yik3s!” came out this fall.

Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth took the prize in 2010 with their burly, awesomely vulgar power-pop gems.

It’s an 18-and-older show, so you can bring along your little cousin, sibling, niece or nephew who’s home from college over the winter break. The 2012 showcase starts Jan. 26. The entries have been rolling in, and we’ll let you know early next month which acts made the semi-finals.
