And do it quickly. One can hope that the musicians involved will be able to find their muse, and find it fast. Chilton, however, isn't too worried, as he "picked people who were skilled at songwriting in their bands" when choosing participants.
The list features Jimmy Eat World's Jim Adkins, Henri Benard of Dry River Yacht Club, Lymbyc Systym's Mike Bell, Robin Vining of Sweetbleeders, Captain Squeegee's Danny Torgersen, Illya Riske of The Whisperlights, David Cooper of Snake! Snake! Snakes!, and Wooden Indian's David Moroney.
Also participating are Rob Kroehler of Ladylike, Tobie Milford, Jason Roedl of Mergence, Let Go's Jamie Woolford, Aaron Wendt of Source Victoria, Avery's Mariah Deraet, Black Carl's Matt Noaks, Pick & Holler's Lindsay Cates, Sean Silverman of This Century, and Michael B Alexander.
Chilton says that he's eager to see and hear what happens.
"I'm sure some really bad songs and some really good songs," he says. "Either way, it will be fun."
The Phoenix Rock Lottery performance will take place at 8 p.m. on Sunday, February 9, at Crescent Ballroom. Admission is $10.
