Alix & Carlie of Golden Triangle

The Rock Lottery began in Denton, TX in 1997 (and in Seattle in 2006). This will be Brooklyn's inaugural Rock Lottery. The premise is simple, but effective. Twenty-five hand picked musicians meet at 10:00AM at the evening's performance venue. These volunteers are organized into five groups through a lottery-based chance selection. The five separate groups are then released to practice at different locations. The musicians have twelve hours to create a band name and three to five songs (with a one cover-song limit). The groups will then perform what they have created that evening in front of a waiting audience.
The Rock Lottery compiles those 25 musicians from varying backgrounds in an attempt to move each out of their comfort zones and into musical exploration. The participants, which include members of Liturgy, Oberhofer, King Missile III, Death Set, Bear In Heaven, Family Band, Les Savy Fav, White Rabbits, and many others, will perform their new pieces at Knitting Factory on Saturday (12/18). Tickets are on sale, and proceeds from the show will go to World Savvy, a local charity focused on teaching the "next generation of leaders to learn, work and live as responsible global citizens in the 21st century."

So what do the two ladies in the above picture have to do with The Rock Lottery? The one on the left is bassist Alix Brown of Golden Triangle, who is a participant in the show. The lady on the right is Carlie Rabalais (also Golden Triangle) and the picture is a production still taken from the video shoot for "Crystal" by Carlie's other band X-Ray Eyeballs who will release heir debut album, Not Nothing, via Kanine Records on April 19th, 2011. No word on when "Crystal" will hit the rounds, but you can catch the band at a pair of shows in the near future, including supporting Tyvek and Fergus & Geronimo at Mercury Lounge on 1/16 (tickets are still on sale) and Bruar Falls this Wednesday (12/15) with Food Stamps + My Teenage Stride.

That is a pretty cool concept. I am curious what they will all come up with.

Posted by Anonymous | December 14, 2010 11:52 AM

Jesus Christ!

That pic is my new screensaver. And, think I love Golden Triangle; even though I've never heard any of their songs.

Damn right sex sells.

I went to the Rock Lottery back in Seattle. Very cool idea, though there were only 2 or 3 songs that sounded any good.

11:53 - they're pretty fun live.

my female friend and i have both had a crush on one of the singers (the one on the right) for a while.

This is disgusting. Just had to add a contrary opinion.

Looks like that doll lives a good life.

I'd cry of joy if I came home one day, walked in the bathroom and came upon that. Cry like a itty, bitty baby.

I would offer those girls selections from my private hummus reserve cellar. My olive/chickpea '98 would make for a good evening with Golden Triangle.

i use garbanzo beans instead of chick peas in my hummus.

If you can't see nipples, what's the point?

Posted by soysalami | December 14, 2010 1:44 PM

i'd like to know what the girls do with the doll!

Posted by shit needle | December 14, 2010 1:46 PM

i know nothing about this band or these girls. the one on the right looks like she has big tits. does the other one have nice tits? confirm/deny? if not, no care ever.

Posted by Anonymous | December 14, 2010 2:14 PM

i saw golden triangle once i can tell you i think they both have nice titays.

Posted by Sauce Amigo | December 14, 2010 2:25 PM

both are skinny and have great tiny bodies

Posted by Anonymous | December 14, 2010 2:27 PM

ok,then show your tits already or go away, just like kickball katy.

no way their music is good, i mean...they're named Gold Triangle. Nothing good could come of people who think that's a solid name for their band.

Posted by Anonymous | December 14, 2010 2:28 PM

this is actually a really cool idea

Posted by Anonymous | December 14, 2010 2:54 PM

Crystal is going to be on the XRay Eyeballs debut 7" EP, coming up in early 2011 on HoZac!

Posted by todd | December 14, 2010 3:16 PM

That photo could only be hotter if there was a can on Goya chickpeas somewhere floating in that tub.

Posted by Anonymous | December 14, 2010 6:49 PM

it would be sexier and healthier (for the skin) if they bathed in hummus

No surprise on the amount of comments with that picture.

Good thing theres no immediate Liturgy vocals as soon as you open this comments section.
