Rock Lottery

Please welcome the third annual Rock Lottery to Knitting Factory on December 1st:

The 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.
This year's event will be MC'd by Corn Mo (MC TBA) and performers (so far) include current/former members of My Morning Jacket, Against Me!, Blonde Redhead (who are playing Irving Plaza on NYE), Javelin, VHS or Beta, YUCK, and Hospitality (who have a Bowery show coming up). Lineup is below and tickets are on sale now.

2012 lineup for Rock Lottery and video from previous events are below.
