Mike Bayer (Amateur Radio Operator, Evangeline)
Larry Brady (Biography of Ferns)
T. Tacket Brown (Two Loons for Tea, Jonny Sonic, Hayley Sales)
D. Crane (BOAT)

DV One (DV One)
Jesy Fortino (Tiny Vipers)
Jen Gay (Kaliningrad, Minirex, Buttersprites)
Jorge Harada (Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers)
Jamie Henkensiefken (H Is for Hellgate)
Bill Horist (Master Musicians of Bukkake, Ghidra)
Laurie Kearney (Ships, Palmer AK))
Kevin Kmetz (God of Shamisen, Estradasphere)

+1 to be announced

Remember, these 25 (er, 24 +1) folks will be broken up into random bands of five on Sunday, the 13th, with the only stipulation being that each have a drummer. They get 12 hours to write original songs and practice before the show that night at Neumo’s, and all proceeds go to Arts Corp. More info on last year’s here. What’s your dream mash-up on this list?

Rock Lottery always donates all of the profits to a different Non-profit organization. Past beneficiaries have included Consolidated Works, KEXP and the Vera Project.

Rock Lottery is pleased to announce this years beneficiary...

Arts Corps is a non-profit youth development program, that partners with schools and community organizations to bring free arts classes to low-income youth.

VISION: Freedom to imagine, courage to be.
MISSION: Arts Corps provides and inspires arts education programs that develop creative habits of mind to enable young people to realize their full potential.

This is different. This is needed. This works.

I would take Noah Star Weaver (USE) and have him Cobain the band with
T. Tacket Brown (Two Loons for Tea, Jonny Sonic, Hayley Sales)
DV One, (Political prisoner)
Tilson (The Saturday Knights)

These guys would make the best dance music that would trump any other line-up. And just to add an experimental touch, I would throw in:

Bill Horist (Master Musicians of Bukkake, Ghidra)

I think he would be the best musician who could work with these guys. I could totally see him adding some heavy visceral muscle that rockers wouldn't be embarrassed to dance to.

That line-up probably won't happen, but this event has my money if it does. :)
