International mega-fame, late-night booty calls from supermodels, sold-out stadiums and a complimentary U-Haul filled to the brim with enough top-of-the-line drugs to make Lil' Wayne look like Wayne Newton. These are, of course, a few minor advantages of winning the annual Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase. However, the most prestigious and sought-after perk is a signature cocktail at Sticky Fingerz, named after the victor. This year, Brother Andy, Bad Chad and Johnny D. — three guys who know their way around a liquor store — are unveiling the bar's new feature.
What could it be? A Killians/Hot Damn/sloe gin thing called Andy's Big Red Beer-d? Warr-Steiner? Brother Andy and His Big Damn Shot of Gin?
Tune in this Friday at Stickys for the thrilling conclusion. William Blackart, Adam Faucett's partner-in-crime and one of the most criminally underexposed singer-songwriters in the state, opens the show alongside the rough-shod country of J.R. Top and local garage-country trio Jonathan Wilkins & The Reparations.
