BROOKLYN ROCK LOTTERY 6

DECEMBER 12TH 2015 /// 8:30pm

KNITTING FACTORY BROOKLYN

361 METROPOLITAN AVE /// BROOKLYN NY /// 11211

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.

Arthur Ashin (Autre Ne Veut)
Bria Skonberg
