HI SO THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, I think it would be a lot of fun for the Toronto community to come together for a super fun lottery band draw.
how this works - individuals will sign up to be part of the toronto punk rock lottery band draw. all names are placed in a hat and random bands will be formed. bands are given 4-6weeks to get together and create a 15min set of original music ( for funsies 1 cover will be allowed) and then we all get together and have one big fun show!
what im thinking - this is a great way for the community to come together and have some fun. also a great chance for folks to work with new people, try out new instruments or even be involved in their first band. ALL GENRES WELCOME, EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
I am also thinking that since we’re all coming together it could benefit the community even further so I’d like the proceeds from this to go to charity. I’m proposing that each band formed submits 1 charity/cause they’d like to help and we can pick two charities by random at the show.
HOW CAN YOU HELP? -
if you’d like to sign up post here in the event and i’ll keep an updated list! if you dont use facebook feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . this is a start of an idea, i am super open to talk to anyone about any suggestions/ideas or anything really! also helping to spread the word about this idea would be super amazing. bands will be drawn by random at the end of january ( exact date TBD) show date negotiable
PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU ARE COMMITTED AND ABLE TO PRACTICE IN TORONTO
maybe in your post say something a long the lines of I’D LIKE TO SIGN UP. also you can all play any instruments that you dream of. i believe in you.
bands will be drawn at complete random, not done by instrument. THIS IS FUN, LEARN NEW STUFF
i hope this all makes sense to everyone
