Black Sheep Band Lotto is BACK! This will be the fourth year we have done this fun annual event, getting anyone who wants to be in a band involved. What’s is band lotto for those of you who do not know? Let’s go over the rules:
RULES: Anyone willing puts their own name into the Band Lotto Box, now set up inside Dumb Records (1107 S Grand Ave. E, open every day noon – 8pm). Names will be drawn the night of Saturday, September 16th after bands are done playing at the Black Sheep Cafe 12 Year Anniversary Show. Names are drawn in groups of fours and fives, and it is the responsibility of these new groups to get together and form a band to play one show on Saturday, November 18th!
WARNING: This is a commitment! Do not put your name in if you can’t commit to meeting with people you are drawn with once a week, spending every day practicing a new instrument, or if you live too far to drive to Springfield for band practices!! NO FLAKES!! Also do not put anyone else’s name in the box, you will ruin it for everybody!
For now the start time of the band lotto show is 7:00 pm and admission is $5 (may change depending on the number of bands to sign up). Find a facebook event for the show right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep this summer.
