Rock Lottery


Saturday Dec 1, 2012 (9pm–midnight)


Knitting Factory

361 Metropolitan Ave




 Take twenty-five hand picked musicians, get them together at ten in the morning, organize them into groups of five through a lottery-based chance selection, give them twelve hours to start a band that performs three to five songs (one cover allowed), and see what happens. That's the idea behind the Rock Lottery, and this year with members of bands like My Morning Jacket, M83 The Hold Steady, Blonde Redhead, and others, things will get mighty interesting. Just one glimpse at the lineup of bands represented makes the imagination run wild with the possibilities, and the best part is that all the proceeds go to charity--this year it will be Rockaway Renegades to aid Hurricane Sandy Relief.
