The Louisville Rock Lottery is a scene-building exercise and concert that takes 25 area musicians and randomly turns them into five bands for a one-night-only performance. At 10 a.m. on the morning of the show, the musicians are broken into the bands, and at 10 p.m. that evening, they take the stage to each perform three songs that they wrote in those 12 hours. From a political rock opera to a band called Synth Party, the results have always been impressive. This year features members of Wax Fang, GRLwood, Quiet Hollers, Juanita and more.
