Local promoter Rob Ruzicka has brought plenty of noteworthy punk and hardcore acts to St. Louis over the last ten-plus years, but this Band Lotto Show he assembled may be his most lofty endeavor yet. The premise: Pool together 24 members of the local punk scene, draw their names from a hat, and every four members drawn are in a band together. The bands feature members of the Humanoids, Bunnygrunt, the Rabies(!), Sex Robots, Doom Town and more. These newly formed bands have been practicing for months, and for most of them, this will be their first and last time playing together.
A New Slice of Downtown: This event marks the first of many shows to take place at Voce, a venue located inside the newly developed — and recently relocated — Maurizio's Pizza.
