Rock Lottery this Saturday at Neumo's!
Check this out, if you're in the area. It's a very unique and fun event, and I'm really excited to be involved. Sean was in the last was one (about two years ago) and the results can be pretty great...

Good/Bad Archive Project presents
Seattle's 2nd Rock Lottery
25 Musicians, 5 Bands

Proceeds benefit 90.3/KEXP
WHEN: Saturday, April 29th 2006
Doors open at 8:00pm, show starts promptly at 10:00pm
WHERE: Neumo's, 925 E Pike St. Seattle, WA
TICKET INFO: $12 advance/$15 doors, 21+
Tickets are available at the Bad Juju Lounge (1425 10th Ave),
TicketsWest.com or by calling 1-800-992-TIXX.

The Rock Lottery is simple, but effective. Twenty-five hand picked musicians meet at 10:00AM at the performance venue. These volunteers are organized into five bands through a lottery based chance selection. The five different groups are then released to practice at different locations. The musicians have twelve hours to create a band name and three to five songs. The bands will then return to the venue and perform what they have created in front of a waiting audience.

The twenty-five musicians included in this experiment are carefully selected in an attempt to represent a wide variety of musical styles. This event will bring together many facets of the music community that may seem incompatible, as well as musicians whose interests may conflict. The challenge for these participants is to try and go beyond their personal and musical differences and work together to create a unified group project that still contains the personal styles of each of its members.

I agree. This is a really wonderful gathering of musical minds. I was involved in the initial rock lottery. That is where I met Sean. And poof, here am I drumming with this great band.

Go check it out! You won't be sorry.

Pray to the God that you don't quite believe in
To bless this fleeting moment
Yeah, YEAH, YEAH!

Fake IDs are the future. Craft them well and let them lead the way.

I really don't understand why you people lay down for this 21 bullshit. This is the kind of stuff that makes me so damn despondent. There should be no arbitrary lines separating post-pubescent humans from other post-pubescent humans, period. None of these ridiculous laws ever existed before the 20th century. Human beings like every other animal on this planet are, whithout question, adults after puberty. That is how it was for the entirety of our 30 000 years of history and to pass laws to artificially delay what is true adulthood is morally repugnant.

Why aren't you people angry about this? I certainly was upset when I went from a country where I was legally allowed in bars at 14 to one where I was 20 years old and being treated like a child. This is sad. You just let them take away your rights little by little....

hey. we are angry, we're just too damn swamped with homework to do anything about it. *shakes fists at A.P. tests* anyway, what they hell can i do about it? somehow i don't think the 21+ law is going anywhere. we're talking about a country that completely (albeit ineffectively) outlawed alcohol for a decade. yeah, i said it: prohibition.

What I've always said about the situation in the US is that 50% of the country doesn't vote, but if someone forced those 50% of non voters to vote, you can sure as hell bet that things wouldn't be the way they are. btw, there are two places still left in the continental US that you can get into bars if you are under 21... do you know where they are and why?

P.S. - Yeah, I know you are a year away from voting, but don't forget to when you can... the christian right certainly never does!

There are tons of places you can get into bars under 18. Varying interpretations of state laws, and varying definitions/types of bars make this something that isn't easily sliced from what I understand.

At any rate, if there are only two places, I live in one of them. Why? Because the economy here depends on college students. 18+ to enter most bars, 21+ to drink.
