Sled Island Rock Lotto

What do you get when you throw 30 of Calgary's best-loved musicians in a room, have them draw names from a hat to form new bands on the spot, and give them less than 12 hours to write and perform new material? Find out at the next Sled Island Rock Lotto! Lineup coming soon.

Doors at 9pm
The Palomino Smokehouse & Social Club (109 7th Ave. SW)
