In the three years I've been managing the Showcase, we've never had more submissions than we did this year. And not just from a bunch of bedroom songsmiths who probably shouldn't venture out, but genuinely talented musicians. In fact, we had too many worthy submissions. Some quality acts didn't make it into the field of 16.
To those who didn't, thanks for entering and keep hitting us up with show dates and band information at calendar @ arktimes.com.
To those who did in the list below, look for a call or email from me directly about your show date. Or if you're the proactive type, hit me up at lindsey @ arktimes.com for details.
The Showcase kicks off on January 28 at Sticky Fingerz. Look for many, many more posts about it in the coming days.
