After much fanfare and success of its inaugural performance in 2018, the Rock Lotto is returning to the historic Astra Theatre in Jasper on Saturday, July 20. Doors for this performance will open at 6:30 p.m. with bands scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at www.TheNextAct.org. General admission tickets are $10.
This is a fundraiser event going on its second year. Local musicians will join in the competition, and the participants will be “drafted” to form new bands for the event. The newly formed bands will then each perform a few songs as they try to impress to the audience that they deserve to take home the jackpot of being named the big winners of the 2019 Rock Lotto .
Every admission ticket purchased comes with 10 votes. As the fledgling bands vie for dominance, audience members will cast their votes. Will you split your votes among a few stand out groups, or will you go all in on one brand new band with obvious rock star status in their future? A winner for the evening will be announced at the conclusion of the event.
In addition to sharing the evening with the bands of Rock Lotto, make plans to attend events from the scheduled 2019 Next Act, Inc. shows including the highly anticipated performance of National Park Radio on Saturday, August 24. Tickets and information on upcoming shows can be found at www.TheNextAct.org.
The historic Astra Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Jasper, Indiana. Newly renovated with 357 seats, the Astra has main level and balcony seating with a concessions stand offering snacks, local craft and domestic beer, and wine that are available for purchase.
