L.A. LOTTERY LEAGUE DRAFT NIGHT AT PROJECT INFEST
The L.A. Lottery League, the local response to an endeavor created by a group of Columbus, Ohio, artists in 2008, takes the members of more than a dozen local bands and reshuffling them to create a dozen brand-new bands by the end of February. The first part, Draft Night, is presided over by a “council of chiefs”: The Smell’s Jim Smith, musicians Michael Nhat and Dalton Blanco, impresario Sean Carnage and booker Deseret Rodriguez. This Star Chamber of the scene chooses the combinations of musicians who will work together under a new band name to produce a dozen minutes of unpredictable, completely new music. The result might be a phenomenal blossoming of artistic potential — or it might be the musical equivalent of the Louisiana Superdome, at which occasionally some kind of barbaric sex or suicide occurs.
