Fifty Fifty 7th annual Rock Lottery

No, this isn’t a gambling game where the grand prize is a big sack of rocks. This is the Fifty Fifty Arts Collective’s annual fundraiser, which sees local bands meet at the collective the morning of Saturday, July 9, throw their names into a hat and have them drawn at random to create new bands. Once each group is assembled, they’ll head off to a jam space where they’ll create an original four-song set (roughly 20 minutes) to be performed later that evening at Logan’s Pub (1821 Cook). That means they’ll only have eight hours to practice.

This year’s talent includes memebers of Freak Heat Waves, Seaweedhead, The Dyeing Merchants, Bells and Cannons, BYKX, Dreamboat, The New Colors, National Tape, Newport Beach and Automatic Planet.

Tickets are $10 and all proceeds go to support the Fifty Fifty Arts Collective (2516 Douglas). M
