UPCOMING: 2nd Annual Rock Lottery - Magic Stick Detroit - Wed April 21st

Wednesday, April 21st - The Magic Stick
8pm / $10 / 18+

Once again the Magic Stick will be hosting a Rock Lottery to benefit The Greening of Detroit.

How this works:
Sixty band members who have been personally invited, will randomly be organized into 15 groups. Each group will have one week to learn one cover song and one original. On April 21st, the groups will perform on one of the two stages set up. The concept of the rock lottery originated in Denton, TX but has become an annual event at several venues nationally.

Please join us in supporting a ‘greener’ Detroit and join the Rock Lottery.

“The Greening of Detroit works to guide and inspire to grow a ‘greener’ Detroit through planting and educational programs, environmental leadership, advocacy, and by building community capacity.”
