On Saturday, Nov. 16, the Richmond Rock Lotto will return to Strange Matter, brought to you by WRIR and the Central Virginia Food Bank
Here’s how it works: 40 of Richmond’s finest musicians come together to form eight different bands. Their names were thrown into a hat and randomly drawn into groups of five members, most of whom are from different genres or have never worked together before. These brand new bands are given three weeks to put together a 10-20 minute set.
The name of the new bands are Sarl Cagan, Whimsical Ass Fashion, Winkle, Infected Cemetery, Ghost Bitch, Jerk Booth, Skull Theatre and Dick Wolf. Bobby Egger from Vinyl Conflict and Marty Key from Steady Sounds will be hosting the event.
Tickets are $10 or $5 with two or more cans of food.
