Dudes: It's been a phenomenal near-year here at Square Zeros, and we're thankful for a lot of people. As if by design, Eddie Nazareno (of pow-wow! and Crazy Pills) and Amanda B. (also of Crazy Pills) threw together an incredible Band Lottery that brought together a ton of those people. Thirty local rockers threw their names into a hat and were selected to form never-before-heard bands together.
We've got some snaps from that show, a handful from Mayor Creep's Reunion Farewell show, and some links to photo and video by outside documentarians of the Band Lottery. Check out Dean Keim's phenomenal photo-set here, and thanks to Eddie Nazareno for committing this all to video. The video links below are all his doing.
Thanks so much, guys.
