The Tucson Rock Lottery
The Tucson Rock Lottery is an event where twenty-five hand picked musicians meet in the morning, at the evenings performance venue, and 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 it, write four original songs, and learn one cover-song. 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 Tucson's music community that may seem incompatible as well as musicians whose interests may conflict. The challenge for these musicians is to try and go beyond their personal and musical differences and work together to create a unified group project that still contains the personal styles of each of the participants.

The Rock Lottery was originally instigated in 1997 by Good/Bad Art Collective music coordinator Chris Weber in Denton, TX, the Rock Lottery has become a highly anticipated music event in the North Texas, Seattle and Brooklyn. This is the fifth annual Tucson Rock Lottery and will be held at The Flycatcher - 340 E. 6th St., Tucson, AZ. 85705 on Saturday, December 10th at 9PM.
