To honor the passing of longtime musician Richard M. Derrick, who recently succumbed to Parkinsons’s and was known for organizing one-off bands whenever he played, 25 veterans of Southern California punk, rock and experimental music threw their names into a hat and were divided into five bands. Each conglomerate will perform whatever they’ve come up with, then Moby Grape founding member Peter Lewis — whose new album, “The Road to Zion” comes out this month — and his daughter Arwen will play a set featuring some unannounced special guests. Door proceeds go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
The full roster of musicians playing Loteria tonight includes Alice Bag, Gitane Demone, Joe Baiza, Brian Christopherson, Woody Aplanalp, Dave Arnson, Jonathan Hall, Willie Aron, Pat Hoed, Joe Berardi, John Collinson, Steve Gregoropolous, Joe Dean, Marc Doten, Jim Mills, Richard Jones, Laura Smith, Vince Meghrouni, Carey Fosse, Dave Travis, Bob Lee, Dan McGough, Heath Seifert, Andy Sykora and Jon Wahl.
