Freedom Bureau kicked off Round 3 of the 2013 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase with a blast of awesomely shambolic, folk-tinged garage rock.

Showcase judge Grayson Shelton was into the band's "very '60s garage-pop," noting, "I want to book these guys to play a clambake on Venice Beach in 1966. And I want a time machine."

Guest judge Travis Hill wrote "jangly pop ... dig the clean guitar lines." Judge Mandy McBryde called Freedom Bureau "smart rock. It spans so many decades I can't even figure out where it came from. I like their moodier stuff." Judge CT wrote, "I like the change-up of styles."

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
