Along with the once-of-a-lifetime thrill of seeing six brand new/never again bands in the Rock n’ Roll Lottery, you’ll have the chance to bid on loads of sweet silent auction prizes.

Since you’re into CiTR 101.9 FM, chances are good that you’re also into music. So get in there and bid on some concert tickets: St. Vincent, Dreamtheatre, and Nick Cave are all up for grabs.

Or perhaps you’re looking to supplement your record collection? Bid on gift packs from Red Cat Records, Vinyl Records, and Kingfisher Bluez.

Or work on your own chops with a ukelele from Bonerattle Music and some rehearsal time at Pandora’s Box Rehearsal Studios.
