The Austin Band Lotto is a long-term experimental project whose goal is to promote the formation of new sounds, songs, friends and bands. How? By gathering a group of friends, acquaintances and strangers and putting all of their names in a hat. In August of 2009, we formed nine random bands with people playing randomly assigned instruments. Each band came up with two songs in two months using the assigned themes. Out of this social and musical experiment came new friends, new bands, and a dynamic, fun, and a highly listenable compilation. You can get sneak peek AND your hands on it before it's official CD RELEASE at Emo's on Saturday the 17th. The jewel cased album features liner notes from Chris Lyons, the initiator of the project, and photography and artwork by Patrick Healy.
Sounds real fun! BYOB and bring pillows or chairs for the video screening if you want to sit down. There will also be tasty vegetarian "Arawraps" from Ararat available for $5-$6. Yum.
