Rock Lottery is tomorrow

I completely messed up my internal calendar, because I had convinced myself that Rock Lottery was taking place *next* weekend. But, it's actually tomorrow. Holy cow!

What is Rock Lottery, you ask? It is a rediculously fun experiment. 25 musicians arrive at Neumos tomorrow morning at 10am. Bands are randomly formed among these musicsians by something akin to pulling names out of a hat. Although each band is guaranteed a drummer, the remaining parts of the band are left to chance. So, it might be a drummer and four bassists. Or it might be a drummer, two vocalists, two piano players and someone playing the triangle. Hard to say.

But, after the bands are formed they will have the remainder of the day to craft a three- to five-song set, which gets performed the same evening (again, at Neumos tomorrow night -- Saturday the 14th).

I'm a big fan of this concept, and if it doesn't sound cool enough as it is, it's also a benefit for the VERA project.
