Fifth Annual Rock Lottery with The Flycatcher

Posted By on Fri, Dec 2, 2016 at 11:00 AM

It's a unique night of local music and it's something you've never heard before. The Flycatcher, a local bar and small-time music venue on Fourth Avenue, will host Tucson's fifth annual rock lottery to benefit the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

The concept is simple: Gather 25 of Tucson's local musicians and fashion them into five musical groups, which are selected all by chance. Each group will be sent off to different practice locations across town and will have only 12 hours to create a band name, write four original songs, learn a song to cover and perform all five pieces to a Flycatcher audience.

All of the musicians chosen for this rock lottery comes from all walks of life and musical genres, according to The Flycatcher's official website. The hope is to highlight the unique musical styles within the Tucson community and bring together new genres while still maintaining the styles of each musician.

Where: The Flycatcher, 340 E. 6th St.
When: Dec. 10 at 9 p.m.
How to get in: Be at least 21; $5 admission at the door and/or bring two non-perishable food items to donate, all proceeds go to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona
