Art Amiss is proud to announce the awarding of a $300 grant to the members of the Fayetteville, Arkansas based band Egyptr to help defray the cost of recording a new album. The awarded funds will go directly toward the costs of the recording session, which will take place over the next few weeks.

Egyptr has been performing regionally and locally in Fayetteville for two years. This will be the band’s first studio recording session, with the exception of a song recorded for the Arkansas Punk compilation, which was released jointly by Art Amiss and KXUA 88.3FM.
