As of right now, the above picked bands in Rock Lottery 4 have had about 4 hours to hang out, write songs, and rehearse. They will present their findings at Neumo’s starting at 10 p.m. tonight. Cover’s $10, and all proceeds go to Arts Corp. These shows are always memorable, whether due to surprising genius or, well, surprises. See you there (as soon as I get out of tonight’s Sonics game, anyway).

9:30am - The individual musicians arrived at Neumos...

10:00am - The individual musicians were randomly divided into 5 bands, band photos were taken and they were sent off to practice...

3:00pm - The bands returned for lunch and turned in their band names and then returned to practice...

10pm - The bands will play their 3 to 5 brand new songs (with a one cover song limit)...!

How'd it go?

The band that wore the nursing uniforms was super. Check your dignity at the door in the name of fun!

Tilson was his incredible self, but his band was a bit blah. Bill Horist is one of the most under rated avant-rock players in Seattle.

Thanks to Chris Weber for bringing this kind of weird yearly event to Seattle and for charity as well. CHEERS Chris!

The show was really fun, but hopefully next year will have more women. All of the variety/cover nights in Seattle are always so full of guys. It was like 4 women and 21 guys. Weird. Why was that?

Bill Horist and Paul Rucker are both under rated. True Originals.
