the return of


open to all musicians who are up for the ultimate challenge!

Drawn by lot, chosen at random, several Brand New Local Super Groups will be created on the spot from a pool of participating vocalists, drummers, bass players, guitarists, and 'other random players'.

If you've participated, or watched, in the past, you know this is a blast.  All are encouraged to throw hats into the ring!
Sign up, and pass this info on to your friends.
We are hoping for representation from a broad range of styles and genres.  The Rock Lottery is not for chickens.


Just email ideat village to be included in the drawing. Submit your name, contact information (email is preferred) and instrument -- simply note "vocals", "guitar", "bass", "drums", or "other".  The "other" category is a wild card and can be any instrument.

The drawing will be held at the Ideat Village fundraiser at Cafe Nine on Saturday, June 9th. You do not have to attend to be included in the drawing -- if your name is drawn, we will contact you to fill you in on your bandmates and other details.

Each Super Group will then have two weeks to learn two songs:   one of your choice, and a second, also drawn by lot, that will specify a specific genre, artist, decade, etc.  In addition, each Super Group must also come up with an original Ideat Village "jingle" -- just a few catchy lines, set to music.


After only two weeks of practice, each Super Group will perform their songs on Saturday June 23th at Cafe Nine.  Yes, it's a competition, but the stakes are low... Prizes will be of minimal value, but the adoration of your fellow musicians is a priceless treasure. 

There will be an overall winner, but also special recognition for best outfits and best merch, so get creative!

Hope to see you there!
