After an overdramatic intro by hosts Colin Carter and Mike Wiebe, Yanni DiFranco (with members of Jackson 8, Mugzu and more) capitalized on the goofy mood with a self-aware blend of classic rock and death metal. Most of their set was laid-back and carefree, but they also snuck in an unexpectedly amazing midtempo cover of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." Pink Bullets followed under the leadership of Echo Lab co-owner Matt Barnhart; his sharp guitar work made the brand-new band sound years-old, and he screamed like the devil through their house-raising closer, "Lord of the Pit." Later, Megaforce's hard-rock set suffered from sound trouble, and KJI brought the entire Lottery cast onstage for a boisterous, hoedown sing-a-long at night's end, but it was Wombstone Pizza's 15-minute epic that won the Lottery. Fishboy's Eric Michener, armed with toys and kazoos, led his brigade through a zany, Who-like musical smorgasbord. The multi-genre song ended with Record Hop's Ashley Cromeens cutting a rug alongside Michener in a disco dance-off, and the crowd's reaction was proof that at the Rock Lottery, everyone wins.
