After much scrutinizing, we’re pleased to announce the 2014 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase 20 semifinalists. Here’s how the showcase works, for all you newbies out there: Over the course of five Thursdays, beginning Jan. 30 at Stickyz, 107 River Market Ave., four semifinalists will play 30-minute sets of original material for five judges, who will assess each act’s musicianship, originality, songwriting and showmanship. There will also be points awarded from the audience, so bands, make sure to bring lots of your friends with you.

Each semifinal round will begin at 9 p.m. The final round will be held at Revolution on March 7.

This year’s judges are “Big” John Miller, local soul man extraordinaire and festival coordinator of the Arkansas Sounds Music Festival; Stephen Neeper, frontman of local rock ’n’ roll outfit Stephen Neeper & The Wild Hearts; Stacie Mack, longtime woman about the music scene and hairdresser to the stars, and Bryan Frazier, pop singer/songwriter and assistant station manager at KABF 88.3 FM.
