The 6th annual Brooklyn Rock Lottery will happen December 12 at Knitting Factory. The premise, as always, is this:

The Rock Lottery premise is simple, but effective. Twenty-five hand picked musicians meet at 10:00AM at the evenings 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.

While the whole lineup of musicians involved hasn’t been revealed, it will feature:

Arthur Ashin (Autre Ne Veut)
Caitlin Elisabeth Gray (Hurray for the Riff Raff)
Cameron Wisch (Porches)
David Monks (Tokyo Police Club)
Doug Gillard (Nada Surf / Guided By Voices)
Holly MacGibbon (Weeknight)
KAMAU
Louis Schwadron (Sky White Tiger)
Luke Jenner (The Rapture)
Malcolm Brickhouse (Unlocking The Truth)
Marty Beller (They Might Be Giants)
Mike Wilber (Moon Hooch)
Norman Westberg (Swans)
Richard Thomas (Heliotropes)
Tad Kubler (The Hold Steady)

Last year’s event was a lot of fun. Tickets are on sale and proceeds this year will go to to Daniel’s Music Foundation, a non profit organization that provides recreational music programs to individuals with developmental and physical disabilities, ages three to adult in the NYC area.
