Phoenix Rock Lottery Hits Shuffle On The Local Music Scene

In 2014, Phoenix rock promoter Stephen "Psyko Steve" Chilton put together a unique way to mix up the local music scene.

Twenty-five local musicians from across genres get together in the morning. Names are drawn out of a hat to divide the musicians into new bands. The bands then write and rehearse new songs that they perform at the evening's concert.

The Show stopped by the Crescent Ballroom on Saturday to check out the seventh annual Phoenix Rock Lottery.
