It’s that time of year everyone! That’s right, Black Sheep Band Lotto is BACK AT IT for another round of wild, woozy, wacked out fun and the slots are OPEN for anyone brave enough to put their name in the box.
First off, let’s dig out the 411 for those of you who don’t know what’s going on. Here’s how it works: people will put their name (and their name ONLY) in THIS box, which will be sitting in Dumb Records. The names will get drawn randomly at the Black Sheep 11 Year Anniversary Show and the bands will then be formed! If you’re curious, just know that we’ve done this before and you can check out the results of previous band lottos by checking out these photos from the 2014 band lotto as well as the video from the 2015 band lotto!
This is not for the weak minded or half-hearted. By doing this, you’ll be joining a BAND which means there will be people in your life that rely on your commitment, talents and ambitions to complete a project together. Another way of wording that is basically, don’t put your name in the box if you don’t fully intend on playing in a band with randomly drawn people that you may or may not know. Don’t put other people’s names in the box either, just yours! This is definitely something you’ll want to encourage as many of your friends to pursue, because that heightens your chances of playing with people you know! The thrill it will give to play with people you don’t know is definitely an added bonus. With all this being said, in the end it doesn’t really matter how “good” or “bad” your band is! This POINT of this cool thing is for people to work with other people to make something bigger than themselves. Even if you don’t know how to play an instrument very well, go in with the intention of learning as well as having fun or making something really weird, different or somehow inspiring. Everyone needs a little spice in their life, including you! So branch out! Go to Dumb Records today and enter into the 2016 Band lotto!
