A&E News, Nov. 27 

Sad news for local music. Up and coming rapper Clint G, born in Clinton Hill, died in a car crash last Saturday. The Forrest City-born MC, 28, had released several well-received mixtapes and at least one album. His most recent project was called “Before the Storm.”

He leaves behind a wife and three children. Memorial services were held on Wednesday.

 

The dates have been set for the 2009 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase. The semi-finals of the annual battle will start Friday, Jan. 30 and run three Thursdays, Feb. 5, 12, 19, and, depending on entrants, another Friday, Feb. 27.  All at Sticky Fingerz.

As usual, the contest is open to any act in Arkansas who specializes in original material.

The entry deadline is Jan. 8. See an entry form on page 20, and watch this space next week for information about online entry.

  • 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.
