Brooklyn Rock Lottery is almost here folks! Try not to get excited, go on, do it, I DARE YA!
Saturday, December 6th
Baby’s All Right // 9 PM
All Proceeds Donated to Harmony Program
Tickets Available Here
On December 6th at Baby’s All Right, twenty-five hand picked musicians meet at 10:00am. 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.
The twenty-five musicians included in this experiment are selected in an attempt to represent a wide variety of musical styles. This event intends to bring together many facets of New York’s music community that may seem incompatible as well as musicians whose interests may conflict. The challenge for these musicians is to try to work together to create a unified group project that still contains the personal styles of each of the participants.
All proceeds from the door, merch, and raffle go to a local charity. This year’s charity is Harmony Program, a non-profit organization that brings after school music programs to communities with limited access to instrumental music education. Raffle prizes include…2 Delta Air Lines Domestic Flights, 2 SXSW Music Festival Wristbands, 2 Bonnaroo Tickets, Baby’s All Right Gift Package, 3 $100 Three Kings Tattoo Gift Certificates, $50 Nitehawk Cinema Gift Certificate, 2 $50 Gutter Gift Certificates, Brooklyn Boulders Guest Passes, Videology Gift Package, $100 Allswell Gift Certificate, $75 Marlow & Sons Gift Certificate, $60 Paulie Gee’s Gift Certificate, $50 Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co.
