Rock Lottery 14 Announces Lineup

Twenty-five musicians enter. Five bands leave.

Denton’s Rock Lottery — that musician-mixing, charity-fundraising event of some repute — has revealed the lineup for its 14th installment at Dan’s Silverleaf on Nov. 28.

The Rock Lottery was founded by Chris Weber and the Good/Bad Art Collective in Denton in 1996, and chapters have since formed in Seattle and Brooklyn. The event brings together a diverse sampling of 25 local musicians and throws their names into a hat. At 10 am on the day in question, the names are drawn from the hat and five impromptu bands are formed. These newfound supergroups then have 12 hours to come up with a band name and three-to-five songs for a performance that Saturday night. (One cover song is typically allowed.)

The whole thing is a lot of fun, and has the added benefit of being for a good cause. Proceeds this year will go toward CASA of Denton County, a nonprofit that looks out for abused and neglected children in the foster care system.

Guests can stop by Dan’s Silverleaf at 10 am for breakfast and the name-drawing. The show starts at 10 pm that night. Get tickets ($15) right over here, or pop by the event’s Facebook page for more info.
